Like John Carpenter’s 1976 classic, it’s set in a police station that’s being shut down, but Last Shift is less Assault On Precinct 13 and more Bombardment Of Jump Scares.
Juliana Harkavy is solid as the rookie cop manning the desk as supernatural weirdness ensues, and the final twist is just one of several decent surprises. But after the backstory’s teased out – Manson family types hung themselves in a cell – it’s mostly just one freaky thing after another, with diminishing returns.
Extras None. Ian Berriman
Barry’s flossing had gone badly wrong.
