Naveen A. Chathapuram makes his feature directorial debut with the thriller The Last Victim, a stylish, white-knuckle neo-western set in rural America. The trailer debuted moments ago, teasing a dark, intense thrill ride that you don’t want to miss!
The film’s impressive cast includes Prime Time Emmy Award® winner Ron Perlman (Hellboy franchise), Ali Larter (Legally Blonde, Resident Evil franchise, Final Destination franchise), and Ralph Ineson (The Green Knight, The Witch, “Chernobyl”).
Based on a story by Chathapuram and Doc Justin, the script was written by Ashley James Louis and follows a group of modern-day outlaws (led by Ineson), pursued by an aging sheriff (Perlman), who deal with the fallout of a crime gone wrong in the harsh landscape of the American Southwest. When a young professor (Larter) and her husband cross paths with the gang, they are drawn into a chain of vengeance where morality is ambiguous and survival is the only priority.
With a deep understanding of the psychological and sociological underpinnings of people sidelined and disillusioned by the promise of the American Dream, Chathapuram crafts a unique vision of survival in the wilderness, exemplified by Larter’s raw performance.
DECAL will release The Last Victim in theaters and on VOD on May 13, 2022.
