Editorial Reviews

On December 15th 1995 a four-man team from the cable-access program Fact or Fiction braved the desolate New Jersey Pine Barrens determined to deliver a live broadcast of the legendary monster The Jersey Devil. Only one came out alive.It took the jury 90 minutes to sentence the lone survivor to life in prison.One year later filmmaker David Leigh decided to mount his own investigation. Convinced that the man convicted of these terrible crimes was innocent Leigh proposes the murders were committed by someone -- or something -- else. Could the Jersey Devil still haunt the barrens?

Customer Reviews

This movie tried way too hard to be creepy and just ended up and plain boring.
M. Bridges
It wasn't enough the filmmakers make an entertaining film, rather they felt they needed a message, so they shoehorned in a statement on the news media.
Matt M.
Definitely the most original movie I've ever seen, and Blair Witch must have copied it!

Format: DVD
A bunch of media doofuses trek into remote woods in search of an old and horrific local legend - and are never seen alive again. By now, "Last Broadcast" will go down (for those few who've seen and remember it) as that other mock-documentary project about the supernatural. I wanted to give this flick a chance given how I've seen "Blair Witch", and not only does "Broadcast" fail by comparison, but fails to escape comparison - painfully ironic given that "Broadcast" is actually the older of the two movies.

WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT: "Broadcast" is a (wholly fictitious) documentary about the 1995 murders of several men who ran a local cable-access show called "Fact or Fiction". When ratings sag, Steve Avkast, Rein Clackin & Locus Wheeler decide to devote a show to the mysterious "Jersey Devil". With the "help" of a local magician and (alleged) psychic named Jim Suerd, our trio make a winter's journey deep into the remote "Pine Barrens". While there, they have their cameras and internet access - they're connected to the outside world, but not protected by it. Only Suerd will emerge alive from the Barrens - luckless, he will be convicted of the brutal murders of two of the others. No body is found of Avkast, precluding feckless prosecutors from pursuing a triple bill against Suerd. (Avkast's hat and gobs of his blood leave little doubt of his fate.) Lacking a confession, prosecutors seal Suerd's fate with his blood spattered clothes, but largely on the strength of preserved video footage showing him as randomly violent and (most importantly) the guy leading the group deeper into the barrens. The documentary begins after Suerd's mysterious death in prison - where he was to serve consecutive life sentences.

Format: VHS Tape
The Last Broadcast is a welcome addition to the new "intellegent" trend in fright movies. Like the Blair Witch movie, it relies more on plot and suggestion than on blood and gore. But an accurate comparison between these two films must include the obsevation that it is more of a combination of the sci-fi special "Curse of the Blair Witch" and the actual Blair Witch movie itself. Indeed, after viewing The Last Brodcast, it is hard to believe that the Blair Witch team did not see this earlier version of (basically) the same type of subject matter. That is not to say that it is nessesarily bad to get your inspiration from another film, since both of these films take from other movies as well. Some that come to mind are "Night of the Living Dead", "The Exorcist" And "Evil Dead", movies that also incorporated relatively small budgets, unknown stars, and compared to other films in the genre, little gore. And so, I will give "The Last Broadcast" a thumbs up, and remind the viewer to remember the small amount of cash it was made for and the tremendous amount of effort and imagination that went into making it. It will take it's spot with my other favorite scary movies(right next to Blair Witch, hee hee). I look forward to more films made with such enthusiasm. One final warning: "The Last Broadcast" has slightly more blood and violence than the Blair Witch movie, which should please those of you who thought there was not enough in Blair Witch.

Format: DVD
What got me about this film and what really worked for me was that I went into it not knowing about it being a movie. I thought this was a true-blue documentary about murders I didn't know about. Furthermore, the 'actors' in the movie gave no sense to me that they were reading off of a script or knew before hand what they were about to say. In fact, the lack of standard acting techniques worked wonders, and gave this film a better sense of being real. After watching the whole movie, I went back and watched again to see what I had missed about this movie. Going through it again, I could see obvious signs I had missed before that this was fiction and not real (newspaper clippings for example). And, seeing how I was so easily lulled into believing this was real, I really truely found respect in what the creators were talking about how media perception affects popular opinion. In fact, it's ironic that this movie talks about the same thing that happened to many people later on who believed this movie's controversial counterpart, The Blair Witch Project, was real. Either way, it IS a low-budget movie and one that has real merit and a good format for what it cost. The directors should be praised that they were able to do so much with so little and make a convincing and, well 'cool' movie that makes a good point about modern technology.

The Last Broadcast (Stefan Avalos and Lance Weiler, 1998)
The Last Broadcast would probably have slipped into obscurity were it not widely considered the film that inspired The Blair Witch Project. Like the erroneous comparisons that remain between The Sixth Sense and The Others, the two films share surface similarities, but the mechanisms that drive each are different. Unfortunately, like The Others (one of the best films of 2001), The Last Broadcast universally suffers in comparison on the surface level, but has much more working beneath the surface. Once again, my hypothesis that subtlety is wasted on the masses rears its ugly head.
The Last Broadcast is a documentary being put together by David Leigh (David Beard, last seen in Strange Brew, who also narrated Avalos and Weiler's "The True Legend of the Jersey Devil") about the 1996 Jersey Devil Murders, in which two hosts of a bad local cable show, Steven Avkast and Locus Wheeler (played by Avalos and Weiler), hire two South Jersey locals, soundman Rein Clackin (Rein Clabbers) and guide/psychic Jim Suerd (Jim Seward; you can see where they went with the names, yes?) to take them into the Jersey Pine Barrens in search of the legendary Jersey Devil. Suerd emerges from the Pine Barrens a few days later alone; Wheeler and Clackin's bodies are soon recovered, while Avkast's remains are only large sprays of blood on the snow. Filmaker Leigh is convinced of Suerd's innocence, and sets out making The Last Broadcast to prove this.
Okay, you see the parallels with the Blair Witch Project. A fictional tale (though the legend of the Jersey Devil really does exist, unlike that of the Blair Witch) being presented in a mockumentary, with lots of supposedly live candid footage.
