Last Shift is a hidden gem you should all see. This low budget film is excellent and it will scare the crap out of you.
The Review (Spoiler Free)
I’ve seen lots of horror movies in my life and I don’t get creep out that easily. But this movie really creep me out. There were many jump scenes that worked well. But it’s just not just the jump scenes, the entire movie is filled with uneasiness and creepy situation.
The story is about a rookie female cop who got the night watch duty at old police station. This old police station is closing down and her job is to man the station for just one night. She is basically alone at the station and she started to see weird thing happening. Because it is her first day at work, she decided not to call for help and just deal with it. We find out later on there is history behind the police station.
The strange activities started very gradually. She started to hear noises and slowly she started to see the activities started to intensified. When she was investigating strange noise in the locker room and see the locker room doors open by itself, she knew there was some thing really bad going on in the old station. But it was her first day at the force and she wanted to impress the sergeant who was in charge of her. Normal people would just get out of the old station, but she couldn’t. I do understand the situation she was in. I just makes the movie very good.
The ending was also very good. I am not going to give away anything, but I was satisfied how they end the movie.
Acting and Directing
The acting is very good. Lead actress Juliana Harkavy is fabulous. Rest of the casts include Joshua Mikel, J. LaRose, and Hank Stone. Last Shift is written and directed by Anthony DiBlasi. Anthony DiBlasi is known for many horror movies including Most Likely to Die, and Dread.

I watched this movie after seeing it was on your recommendations list and I’m so glad I did! Totally a hidden gem scary movie. I kept passing it on Netflix, because the cover made it look like a low budget film, which it is not. I jumped so many times and the suspense was well done. Also, the story is legit intriguing and the quality of production is great. Thanks for the rec!
Yes! I was also surprise how scary and creepy it was. Be sure to check out the rest of the Recommanded 5 star movies. If you enjoy time travel movie, Time Crime and House at the end of time is really good! Have you seen Blackcoat’s Daughter?
I saw Blackcoat’s Daughter recently. It was well done and creepy! It left me feeling uneasy since she got away and continued being horrible. Have you seen The Vault with James Franco? I just watched it on Netflix. It’s a tad slow in the beginning but intriguing. The second half is when things start getting crazy.
In fact one of my friend told me about The Vault. I am planning to watch it toon. Sounds interesting.
If you liked Blackcoats Daughter, check out “I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House”. Its playing Netflix. It’s by same director and similar look and feel.
