is wondering if anyone but me watched THE LAST SHIFT on Netflix?

is wondering if anyone but me watched THE LAST SHIFT on Netflix? It’s a horror film about a rookie cop who has to spend the night in a police station that’s shutting down; and I found it INCREDIBLY creepy and effective…except for one key ball that it just kept awkwardly dropping throughout, and let roll into the gutter at the end unresolved.
THIS IS A SPOILER THREAD, okay? I really wanna talk about it, because I’m mere inches from utterly loving it. But those inches feel like a mile. Click to get

It’s been a while since I’ve watched it. I recall thinking that it was pretty good, and especially compared to what else was available on Netflix, but it wasn’t great. It definitely had some great moments though.

It was soooo close to being great, but the ending felt like just a shrug. I still enjoy it well enough though.

I thought it was pretty well done also Skipp. I need to re-watch because I remember being a little confused with a few things! I do remember it being creepy as hell though! Have you seen “The Void”?

Gosh, I watched it a long time back now. I remember not hating it, but not loving it. kinda fell into the same spot for me as STARRY EYES. Glad it was made…some very effective moments…marred by amateurish mistakes.

DEF a hopeful sign of more genre…

Man, I forgot all about this movie. I remember enjoying it, but can’t remember a damn thing about it.

I loved this movie. Definitely a hidden gem. I recommended it to a friend recently. Love the scene where the other cop shows up and you get a moment of reprieve only to have the rug pulled out from under you!

That shit was great. And his quick reappearance was pretty wonderful, too. That guy gave a great performance.

They did soooo much right that it kills me. Completely agree. And actually, I LOVE a lot of the writing. That’s what makes the ball-drop hurt so much.

It’s hard for a movie to truly convey the infernal. I think Last Shift manages to do that with unrelenting torments that are nonetheless not cheap or gimmicky. I was not blown away by the writing but it’s a story you don’t see very often and has a cosmology that’s both sensible and personal for the protagonist.

I think, if the story were a little bit better written, this might be one of my favorite horror films. I found it truly disturbing, and at times it really scared me, which is a rarity for me. But the long-term premise was a huuuuuuuuge stretch that made it really difficult for me to roll over from intensely like to love.

John Skipp

EXACTLY! It came sooooo close that I will love it forever. But just not close enough for me to do so without going, “Man, just a little bit further, and you would have utterly had me.” And yes, I think it’s in the writing, which was SOOOO GOOD except for the thing that it missed.”

Yes, I have seen it, and I really enjoyed it. One of those hidden gem movies!

It’s a two movie day since I didn’t do one last night, so I’ll check this out.

It has Pollyanna McIntosh… doesn’t it? I liked her in Jack Ketchum’s The Offspring and The Woman. But I haven’t… been watching tv.

I thought it was that one too, almost the exact same blurb, but nope.

I KNOW I’ve seen it….but I honestly can’t remember much about it haha! I should rewatch it.

Saw it a while back. Completely terrifying. My daughter thinks she’s hardcore when it comes to horror flicks, but it scared her, too. Mission accomplished

I watched it a while ago. liked but did not love..hut honestly can’t remember it enough now..that could be my fault or theirs

I really liked that one. Sure, a couple small weak spots in the story, but a good one. Similarly with a couple small weak spots but overall really cool, Let Us Prey with Pollyanna McIntosh.
And I really liked Most Likely to Die, DiBlasi’s next film after this one.

Somehow missed this one, and I feel like a big jerk because a friend of mine is in the damn thing. Going to have to watch it asap

I really enjoyed it. well acted and paced. scary and original which is rare these days. I was a little confused at the end, too but I took the turn of events to mean it was just her being crazy after all.

I really enjoyed it as well. It’s the rare movie that actually provides genuine creeps. Sure, it had its issues, but despite that, it managed to be extremely effective.

It borrows from previous of this ilk….ahem….carpenter….hampered by budget. but…I liked it. The lead actress had me on IMDB…WHO IS THIS GIRL?!

I couldn’t believe I FORGOT her from THE WALKING DEAD! But when I looked her up, I went, “Oh, yeeeeeeeah…!”

I really enjoyed it too. Have you seen DiBlasi’s first film, CLIVE BARKER’S DREAD? Fantastic!

Loads of fun, my one complaint is that I wish the cult hadn’t been a half-hearted Manson knock off

Yeah, man. I felt the same way. Story took a dump but the SCARES were on point.

I loved it when I watched it this summer. It has issues, but it’s actually creepy, something rare lately.

So I feel like the filmmakers either a) fucked up that essential thread of an otherwise-perfect film, or b) had that thread yanked out from under them in final cut. But either way, it bugs me, and falls into the “Fatal Flaw” zone of a movie that is the first one in years to make me TURN ON ALL THE LIGHTS IN MY GODDAM PART OF THE HOUSE.

Regardless, they made me actually get the creep vibe so that alone made me love it. Flaws and all.

It’s weird, because I loved the guy who played Sgt. Cohen. And Juliana Harkavay is pitch-perfect all the way through, IN EVERYTHING BUT THOSE SCENES. Those are the only ones I don’t believe.

Authors gravatar

John Skipp

So Sgt. Cohen says, “You absolutely have to stay here all night. Don’t leave for any reason.” But when we first meet him, he’s losing his shit in the back. Does that mean that the spooky cult leader controls him? That he’s set her up on purpose to be d…

That’s an excellent point. I ignored that aspect to some extent because I liked the rest of the movie so much. But it really did hit a sour note. I loved the ending, though!

I just wanted to know more about the back story of the cult, and what their goals were.

It genuinely creeped me the fuck out… until it just didn’t anymore and I gave up caring. WHICH BUMMED ME OUT CAUSE UNTIL THEN I WAS LOSING MY SHIT!
