The Last Broadcast – Limited Edition Blu-ray Unboxing

Those lovely folks at 101 Films have given their lavish Black Label treatment to another hidden gem, this time focusing their attention on 1998 found footage pioneer The Last Broadcast – a chilling film widely considered to be one of the first of its kind. Shot and edited entirely on consumer-level digital equipment, this horror mockumentary tells the tale of a man convicted in 1995 of murdering his team one night during an expedition to find the mythic Jersey Devil in the New Jersey Pine Barrens. 

We took a closer look at this stunning new release…

In 1995 a four-man team from the cable-access program Fact or Fiction braved the desolate New Jersey Pine Barrens determined to deliver a live broadcast of legendary monster, the Jersey Devil. Only one came out alive. The lone survivor was sentenced to life in prison, but filmmaker David Leigh is convinced that he’s innocent. Could the Jersey Devil still haunt the barrens?
