Last Radio Call - Movie Review

Last Radio Call

Genre distributor Terror Films, will officially launch their YouTube AVOD channel in 2022 with the release of Last Radio Call, a stirring and successful horror film which will probably put Yorktown, Texas on the “found” footage map of Horror History.  From the weird screaming inside the abandoned Yorktown Memorial Hospital to the terror that lies within its spooky walls, something weird is happening here and it will take a grieving widow to uncover the truth.

"gets a lot of things right, especially the striking mood"


But can she handle what her digging will bring to light?  

Sarah Serling (Sarah Froelich) is missing her husband.  Officer David Serling, who went missing inside the abandoned Yorktown Memorial Hospital, has been gone for a year.  Sarah wants answers which is why this found footage film exists, to try and provide the answers she so desperately needs.  His missing persons case remains unsolved.

One year later, his wife hires a film crew to help bring light on what really happened that night. Using recovered body cam footage, she discovers a dark secret that sends her spiraling down a horrific path of ancient evil. She must now face an unknown terror to find the answers she desperately seeks. 

Written and directed by Isaac Rodruguez, Last Radio Call gets a lot of things right, especially the striking mood as a grieving woman embarks on the search for answers about her missing husband.  Others at the scene survived without a scratch.  No one wants to talk to her.  Even the body cam footage is marked classified.  She’s seen the footage, but there remain no answers to what happened.  

But when more unsettling footage is uploaded and something called “The Cage” is revealed, she feels vindicated in her search.  So, she keeps going and uncovers a whole lot more than she ever expected to thanks to mysterious phone calls, disturbing suicides, weird chants, and other unnatural and otherworldly stuff.Last Radio Call

Last Radio Call is an intriguing found footage film as it does seem to follow a narrative thread of a woman out for the truth (which could have easily been a typical horror film), but its chills and spills are striking for the subgenre as more and more information is shared (via video files) and its paranoid depth increases, pointing toward a conspiracy of sorts.  

Co-starring Jason Scarbough, June Griffin Garcia, Ali Alkhafaji, KeeKee Takatsuki, Bert Lopez, and Makayla Rodriguez, Last Radio Call will begin streaming on January 14th and will premiere exclusively on the Terror Films channel featuring a live chat event with the filmmakers, cast and fans during the premiere. The films will be released wide, across Digital and VOD platforms one week later after their premieres, in addition to new releases, the channel will also feature the distributor’s entire library of diverse, indie horror films, which will eventually expand to an international audience.

Last Radio Call will be available across digital and VOD platforms January 21st, one week after it debuts on the Terror Films Channel.
