Overview

The producers of a television documentary discover all-too-real terror in this mock-documentary horror film. Steven Avkast Stefan Avalos and Locus Wheeler Lance Weiler were the hosts of a public access TV show called Fact or Fiction? dealing in unsolved mysteries and the paranormal. For their first live broadcast, Steven and Locus headed into the Pine Barrens of New Jersey in search of the Jersey Devil, a Yeti-like creature long-rumored to haunt the area. Steven and Locus were joined for the expedition by two fans they "met" on the internet, sound recordist Rein Clackin Rein Clabbers and psychologist Jim Suerd Jim Seward. However, only Suerd came back, and the other three were found brutally murdered, as local documentary filmmaker David Leigh David Beard tries to put together the pieces of what happened and who is responsible. Shot on digital videotape for a reported $900 and edited using a personal computer, The Last Broadcast was widely compared to The Blair Witch Project. The directors of The Last Broadcast, Stefan Avalos and Lance Weiler, alleged that their film was made first and that the makers of The Blair Witch Project borrowed their basic premise, though Blair Witch was released first.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Internet chat rooms buzzed with the idea that Daniel Myrick and Ed Sanchez, the directors of the groundbreaking indie horror flick The Blair Witch Project, stole their idea from a rough draft of The Last Broadcast, publicized years before that film materialized. Whether this is true or not is almost irrelevant, given Blair's vastly different approach: It prefers unexplained recovered footage, rather than the documentary-style re-creation that Broadcast favors. Blair's technique ends up being far more ominous and chilling, but Broadcast certainly posits some intriguing ideas of its own in the missing filmmaker department. Most impressive is that it comes across as far more polished than the kind of amateurish pet project one might expect from a film with the unspeakably tiny budget of 900 dollars. It also weaves a complex story line involving a handful of shady characters, and does a believable job of creating back stories for them -- like Blair, it tries to assert that these events really happened. But the documentary approach remains too hermetic to convey real terror, too after-the-fact to suggest the ongoing presence of danger. The droning documentarist lulls his viewers to sleep with his dispassionate sleuth work, leaving them without any sense of the lost characters and only a limited inclination to keep out of the woods.

    Good Old-Fashioned Horror

    Somewhere I read that this movie was never released to theaters, but was a "direct to video" release. Yes, it was quite a horror. A murder scene looked so real, I wondered ever since if this was a "snuff" film!

    Beware of the Cameraman!

    This is the best horror film in a long time, bar none. The cameraman was a real freak. Who knew he did the killing! This was the only horror film in a long while to real scare me! Now watch it.
