A useless and needless “reimagining” of a great movie.
I’m still trying to wrap my brain around why “Last Shift” needed a “re-imagining”? As one of the truly great horror films of the last 10 years, I was actually looking forward to the writer/directors next film, and when I heard it was going to be a “re-imagining” of the movie, it raised several alarms. After watching the film, I can confidently say that the only reason this was done was to race swap the main character, and to me, this is one of the most offensive things anyone can do to an already established franchise.
Aside from some great acting by the Male cast members, and some great SFX and gore, this movie is less frightening, less dynamic and definitely less memorable than Last Shift. In fact, I watched this with my partner and in the end he said, “The person who made this should never be allowed to make another movie in their lives”. Was this the reaction the creative team was going for, because I’m guaranteed he wouldn’t have had the same reaction to Last Shift.
As it stands, I’m getting tired of these creative teams forcing diversity and race-swapping characters just to meet a quota. But I guess that precious ESG score to guarantee funding for projects is more important than creative integrity these days, isn’t it?
Summary; Don’t watch this movie and just watch Last Shift again. This re-imagining is worse in almost every possible way, and wont be remembered nearly as fondly as the film it claims it is.
Watch Last Shift Instead
When LAST SHIFT (2014) came out, it was the first film I’d seen in a few years that unnerved me. It was creepy & gritty. It felt like they did a lot with a small amount of money. When I found out that MALUM was a “re-imagining” of LAST SHIFT with the daughter being race-swapped, I had concerns.
Right from the jump, the acting in this movie is awful. It had some positive things going for it because its the same filmmaker. Its shot pretty decently and there’s some good special effects. It just doesn’t have that grittiness like LAST SHIFT. It’s by no means high polish, but its more polished than its predecessor. It felt like a tv movie that was done to push a more diverse main character. Very unnecessary film.
