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. Co-starring Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga, X-Men: Days of Future Past), Max Charles (The Amazing Spider-Man, American Sniper) and genre veteran Barbara Crampton (You’re Next, Re-Animator), THE LAST SURVIVORS is a suspenseful look at a futuristic world where only the most resourceful survive.

“Hammock’s direction is superb; every moment of every scene matters, and the film shifts between action and drama superbly.”
“…Hammock may have begun his career making worlds for other directors, but given a chance to create his own here, he not only succeeds but excels.”James Rocchi
“Blending elements of post-apocalyptic thriller with classic Western conventions, director Tom Hammock draws on his extensive experience as a production designer and his background as a graphic novelist with this distinctive, near-future debut feature.”Justin Lowe
“With one of the co-writers Jacob Forman being the genius behind the script for ‘All The Boys Love Mandy Lane’ it’s of little surprise that ‘The Well’ sports a lushly layered and ass kicking female lead character. What is unexpected is the both the style (it feels like a modern day western) and staging (the visuals get the most out of the barren desert landscapes) via Director Tom Hammock who shows a real natural ability to tell a visual story with depth. But the true gem of this flick is the turn by young Haley Lu Richardson as a gal forced to confront the demons in her path – it’s arresting work and my favorite of the fest thus far. – 4 stars”Jason Coleman
“…production designer-turned-director Tom Hammock does wonders with desert vistas and, along with Richardson, has created a sci-fi heroine as real as the girl next door.”Bob Strauss
“(An) Apocalyptic nightmare The Well doesn’t need a gimmick — it’s as brutal and beautiful as genre flicks get…”Amy Nicholson
“I went in with high expectations to THE ROVER, and the film did not live up to any of them, except maybe Robert Pattinson’s performance. Is it worth seeing? No, not really. This film was made for $12 million dollars. A little indie SciFi called THE WELL just debuted at LA Film Fest, and I would be surprised if the budget was one-tenth of that, and yet it succeeds on so many levels, it leaves THE ROVER in its war-scarred wake.”Bears Fonte
“Haley Lu Richardson brings an intensity and determination that resonates, adding yet another strong female protagonist to the cinematic horizon. Matching veteran actor John Gries note for note with his performance as the evil Carson, Richardson is one actress to keep an eye on.”Debbie Lynn Elias
“I don’t know about you, but I’ve never watched a movie that’s a post-apocalyptic, dystopian, sci-fi, horror, revenge, action, survival, escape, questing narrative that is a condemnation of living in a world where Big Business has all the power. Like…holy hell. I love the range, and it’s why I think The Well is better and more interesting than almost any other wide-release sci-fi of the last few years. “
“Of the last few years, I would put The Well right up there with post-apocalyptic/dystopian heavyweights: Cloud Atlas, The World’s End, This is The End, Hunger Games, and Catching Fire. It’s not often that the last 15 minutes of a movie has me fist-pumping and applauding quietly to myself.”Chris Lambert
