On Dec 15 1995 the hosts of a cable access show were going to do the first live broadcast in search of the legendary Jersey Devil. Only one came out alive.

The Last Broadcast shares many similarities with the Blair Witch Project; both films share a low budget, amateur style and each arrived within close proximity of one another. However Blair is far more successful, and not only financially. The Last Broadcast focuses on who committed the murders and the ongoing mystery following the crime. Blair successfully placed you in the footsteps of the team within the woods, experiencing fear of the unknown. Last Broadcast certainly looks cheap and the attempts at characterisation or narrative are badly executed. The final few scenes feel like a convenient ending that undermines everything that has went on before. The film remains an interesting oddity and like the Blair Witch, very influential without actually being very good.
