This Day in Horror History: THE LAST SHIFT Was Released in 2014

One of the most highly-rated yet underseen supernatural horror movies of the 2010s is The Last Shift, released on this day in 2014. Directed by Anthony DiBlasi from a screenplay he co-wrote with Scott Poiley, the film features a slew of horror tropes colliding as it builds towards an ending that hits like a gut-punch!

If it’s been a while, or if you’ve yet to experience the twisty terror of The Last Shift, give the trailer and synopsis a look-see below.

Synopsis:
After rookie cop Jessica Loren is been assigned the last shift at a transitioning police station, she must wait for a hazardous-materials crew to pick up biomedical evidence; however, the shift turns into a living nightmare.

The Last Shift stars Juliana Harkavy, Joshua Mikel, and Hank Stone.

Trivia:
The name Paymon is taken from the demon name Paimon. According to The Goetia: The Lesser Key of Solomon the King, Paimon is one of the Kings of Hell, more obedient to Lucifer than other kings, and has two hundred legions of demons under his rule. (Source)

The police station is actually the Sanford, FL police station that had recently been shut down and replaced by a new police/fire complex built a few blocks away. (Source)
