‘Malum’ Trailer: A Lone Cop Takes On A Nightmarish Last Shift

A lone rookie cop, a decommissioned police station, a mysterious death, and the final shift of the evening. The ingredients are ripe for a terrifying experience in Malum, the first original feature from new studio Welcome Villain Films, and a reboot of director Anthony DiBlasi’s 2014 film, Last Shift.

Here’s the official synopsis: “Malum is a bold and expanded reimagining of the 2014 horror cult classic, LAST SHIFT. On a search to uncover the mysterious circumstances surrounding her father’s death, a newly appointed police officer, Jessica Loren, is assigned to the last shift in a decommissioned police station where a notoriously vicious cult saw their demise years prior. The lone officer at the station, she soon finds herself barraged by terrifying paranormal events and, in the process, is taken on a journey during which she learns the shocking truth behind her family’s entanglement with a demented cult leader. MALUM takes the premise of the 2014 festival hit and flips it on its head, thrusting viewers into an unrelenting, adrenaline-fueled, bloody cult nightmare.”

DiBlasi reunites with Last Shift co-writer Scott Poiley to reimagine and expand on the original film. Jessica Sula (Godless) stars as Jessica Loren, joined in the cast by Candice Coke, Chaney Morrow, Clarke Wolfe, and Morgan Lennon.

Malum opens in theaters on March 31st.
