Let me start this off by saying supernatural thrillers aren't really my thing, personally, I find them quite cheesy. This movie, Last Shift, was a fantastic exception to that. The movie follows rookie cop Jessica, played by Juliana Harkavy, on her first overnight shift at a closing police station. Little does Jessica know, it's been exactly a year since Paymon and his followers committed suicide in that very station. Jessica is assigned to wait for a Hazmat team to pick up the bio-hazardous waste left behind, completely alone. Everything is going fine until an unsettling phone call is received; things just go from bad to worse as Jessica finds herself in a living nightmare. Turns out the dark past of the police station isn't ready to move on quite yet.
Last Shift is an upcoming supernatural horror movie directed by Anthony DiBlasi. DiBlasi did an amazing job with the suspense of the movie. It grabbed me straight from the beginning and didn't let go. Harkavy also did a tremendous job remaining watchable, the movie primarily focuses on her alone, and in some cases that can get boring fast. This movie has everything you need for a scary movie; suspense, good development, good story, evil entities, creepy singing, scary phone calls, and just the right amount of blood. The cinematography is also done beautifully and the score is pretty good as well, so it looks and sounds great. This is one of those movies that will leave you feeling uneasy throughout and probably for some time afterwards, and that's exactly what we need more of in the horror genre.
The Last Shift will be released on Blu-Ray and DVD on Oct. 6. This is one movie you don't want to miss so keep an eye out for it.
