LAST SHIFT

re­leased 18 Jan­uary 2015 | 15 | DVD

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Reviews -

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.
