Actually, it’s a diner invasion, but no less horrifying.

LAST STRAW, which will have its world premiere at the Sitges Film Festival followed by its North American debut at LA’s Beyond Fest, is the directorial debut of Alan Scott Neal, from a screenplay by Taylor Sardoni. It stars Jessica Belkin (AMERICAN HORROR STORY), Jeremy Sisto (WRONG TURN) and Taylor Kowalski; the synopsis: “Set over one night in a dusty roadside diner, LAST STRAW follows Nancy [Belkin], a young waitress working alone on the late shift. As a series of chaotic events spiral out of control, Nancy finds herself in a fight for her life when she is terrorized by a group of masked assailants. No one is who they appear to be, and with nowhere to turn, she must do everything she can to survive the night.”
