Lionsgate Films sure churns out the horror flicks. Many are made on tight budgets by smaller production groups. However, a few are fairly effective for the money spent. But the horror flick THE LAST RESORT sort of misses that mark. It's hardly a great film, but just a barely acceptable late night popcorn film.

The film revolves around a group of young women on vacation in Mexico to party because one is getting married. Unfortunately, four of the women fall in with some criminals posing as a tour guide service and end up robbed and stranded out in the Mexican desert. Even worse, they wander until they find an abandoned resort in which an evil takes over and possesses their souls, turning each evil and twisted. The fifth young woman goes on a search for her friends and expectedly falls into trouble with her friends. The plot is about to be as expected about midway through this average grade horror flick. But the film leaves the viewer somewhat unfulfilled. There's just not quite enough there to really satisfy.

If you're looking for something new to watch on home DVD, this is one of the latest releases from Lionsgate. But it's far from the best horror flick that they ever launched.

Lionsgate recently released this new DVD on August 18. For the lack of anything better to watch, this film is an okay watch, but not great watch by any means. Fair ++
