Through the roof suspense that stands out as utterly terrifying.
30 September 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Last Shift is one of those horror films that takes upon the cliché / overused aspect of horror; The paranormal, confined overall environment aspects that commonly miss the mark, or fall flat on its face along the lines. This film however takes what has been commonly used, and proves that it can still be used, can still be scary, and that can still overall manage to succeed on many levels.

We follow Jessica, a newly hired rookie of the police force. Her first task is to practically guard what is now an old station. While doing so, she is unaware of the dark past, the past of which is still lingering, and in a sense has emotional connection with her. First off, the plot of this movie stands out. Having a single character go through many, many hellish, and paranormal events in such a confined area sets a tone. That tone being suspense. The film carries out the plot, story-line, and character past connections very smoothly. Throughout this entire film the plot always manages to tie in with the unknown, the unknown of which we get to learn as the film progresses, unleashing oncoming story changes, plot twists, and overall opening opportunities for good scares. It's a very interesting plot, also, that manages not to fall apart, but instead keep interesting for the viewer. This film always manages to keep its grip. Our character Jessica is a pretty likable character. She is a character we, the audience feel for, and actually enjoy. Her character was solidly executed, and acted throughout the entire film as well; Her emotions show well for the most part, and overall succeed in the situations she is put through. The situations / Paranormal activities that befall her are intriguing; Again. For the small space, and for the specific place she is in, I feel as if the film did an amazing job keeping the activities new, and fresh each time they befall. Nothing felt repetitive. The same occurrences didn't happen over, and over like other paranormal films. Each occurrence, also, tied in with the story, and again opened new story / twist opportunities. Finally the occurrences were actually scary. This film avoided over-wearing itself out. There wasn't useless jump-scares that meant nothing, instead jump-scares that actually revolved around the story, as well as the paranormal threats that involve the story. Thee scares played the right moments, didn't overexert themselves, and overall succeeded in drawing tension, being actually scary, and even terrifying to the point of chills most the ways of the film. If not scary, the events that befell our main character were suspenseful. The atmosphere of this film put the cherry on the cake overall. As the events befell, the atmosphere would set in completely, and overall would add even higher suspense, and intensity.

In conclusion, this was one hell of a surprise! This is a film that actually manages to draw intensity, and rise the levels of such as the film progresses. It also succeeds well in actually being scary, and even terrifying. There were rightly placed jump-scares, and when such scares came actually succeeded in being effective, at the same time keeping apart of the film, and not being a random fill-in ( For example a random cat jumping at the camera. ) The film also actually manages to tie in a few unique paranormal aspects, and scares; Plot- wise as well, this film kept unique, and turned something commonly seen into something great again. The characters were fine, and the acting was quite fine as well. Only bad thing I could possibly say is that there was a bit of slowing down in the middle of this film, but all in all this kept the viewers on their toes, drawing us to a white-knuckle ride that was terrifying, resulting in a memorable horror film that succeeded. I highly, highly recommend this film. It succeeds in what has been seen many times, making what has been seen unique again, as well as actually solidly scary.
