What will happen to the lush and twee state of Oregon when the drought apocalypse hits? Whether you hate Portland hipsters, or merely lust for the end times, you’ll want to find out in forthcoming indie movie The Last Survivors. Here’s the first trailer for you to enjoy.
In this movie, teenage girls fight with guns, not bows and arrows. The action is good, cheesy fun and the plot is ripped straight from today’s headlines. Will megadrought bring us civilisational collapse and redneck warlords? Of course it will.
Here’s the official synopsis:
At the edge of an expansive barren valley, all that remains of The Wallace Farm for Wayward Youth is a few hollowed-out husks of buildings. Seventeen-year-old Kendal (Haley Lu Richardson) can barely recall when the Oregon valley was still lush. It’s been a decade since the last rainfall, and society at large has dried up and blown away. Kendal and the few others that remain barely scrape by while dreaming of escape. When a greedy water baron, Carson (Jon Gries, Napoleon Dynamite, Taken) lays claim to what little of the precious resource remains underground, Kendal must decide whether to run and hide or bravely fight for the few cherished people and things she has left.
You can watch it on VOD or order a DVD/Blu-ray on August 4. Learn more about the movie on the official website.
