Reviews:
” …this has some decent camera work and build to its scares. It’s an intriguing concept and while I think it would have been better as a narrative film, if you’re a fan of movies like this, you’ll definitely find something to enjoy here.” B&S About Movies

” …coming in about the 75-minute mark, the audience may be expecting something short, sweet and effective. However, this, unfortunately, doesn’t explain why there are so many extended scenes of silence where a character is usually walking along a corridor waiting for a jump scare […] Not one of the high notes of the found footage genre and may even send some people to sleep despite how little time is spent with the characters.” Battle Royale with Cheese

“Performances from the key cast give their best. Some of the additional side pieces like newsreaders and witnesses undo some of the better moments. Overall, I liked Last Radio Call, but I didn’t love it. It has some great slightly unnerving scenes that make it watchable but sadly not memorable.” 3/5 Mother of Movies

“It is a shame that the film can’t sustain the palpable paranoia of the first section and although the move to add more to it is commendable, it complicates without deepening either the scare factor or the connection to the characters.” 3/5 Scared Sheepless

” …Last Radio Call has an interesting story revolving around an entity known as The Red Sister. And it does manage to deliver some effective scenes […] So, while it’s not a bad film, Last Radio Call is a disappointing one. It had the potential to be something special, but the lack of relatable characters and some questionable choices by the characters hold it back from achieving that potential.” Voices from the Balcony
