A Great Call

Review by Allegra Earle

The Last Call begins as an innocent tale about the end of an era, yet quickly crescendos to a dark tale about a joke gone too far. From early in the film, the relationships between the characters are established, and we get a sense of their banter and familiarity with each other. 
 
Harry creeps down hall QuotesThe establishment of these bonds are crucial to the emotional significance of the film, and serve as a compelling aspect to what the characters face next. This chilling tale of revenge is a slow boil, with a revenge-thirsty and sadistic menace at its core. 
 
The Last Call is tinged with remorse and regret – regret for a prank gone too far, for things left undone, and for love left unfulfilled – all cut short by a man on the hunt for retribution.
