Storyline

Bristling with equipment, two enthusiastic local access cable TV producers recruit an assistant and venture into a forest in search of the mythical and horrifying Jersey Devil. Days later, only one of the trio emerges. He becomes the prime suspect in the disappearances of the other two. However, a local filmmaker examines extensive footage found at the scene and arrives at a different conclusion. Written by Carl J. Youngdahl <zomno@casbah.acns.nwu.edu>

Another review that mentions 'Blair Witch'
22 July 2013 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

Destined to forever live in the shadow of 'The Blair Witch Project', a film it actually predates, 'The Last Broadcast' uses a similar conceit

  • film-makers disappear while shooting a documentary about a local


legend and their footage resurfaces - but doesn't have the same impact.

It's somewhat floppy at times, and blows its build up with an ending that breaks with the film's reality; it's unexpected, but it's not satisfying. Directors Lance Weiler and Stefan Avalos know how to work their audience, though, creeping us out with weird sound effects, building a convincing picture of the missing film crew, and teasing us with bits and pieces of the found footage.

Effective, then, but somehow less than the sum of its parts.
