"Throughout Last Orders, Smith plays with the audiences’ expectations to keep us guessing how this story will end. [...] Smith understands the genre and what works well within it and utilises this knowledge to make a well-paced film. [...] Smith is certainly a director to keep your eyes on and we can’t wait to see what he comes up with next!

- London Horror Society

"Last Orders has a constant feeling of dread that permeates the film and a tension that deliciously runs from start to end. It is creepy, suspenseful, anxiety-inducing edge-of-your-seat stuff that leaves you guessing for its entirety [...] Last Orders feels nothing like its indie cousins and more like a masterwork in comparison. It is, for all intents and purposes, a beautifully crafted short film. [...] It is a wonderful short film with a clever narrative and a twist ending, meticulously pieced together through a labour of love"

- Nevermore-Horror.com

"Watching Last Orders, the new short film from Jon James Smith, I couldn’t help but wonder what his first full-length feature might be like? I say that because based on what I watched in Last Orders I would anticipate something great, or at the very least, ambitious. Last Orders is first a magnificent horror short... What I got from it was a great story with some ambiguity (for the better), all wrapped in a tidy little short that is ominous from start to finish... Last Orders lives in the horror that burns slow and breathes atmosphere as a horror short."

- HorrorFacts.com

"...an intriguing premise that establishes a mystery that you can’t wait to get to the bottom of... The story is brought to life by the excellent, realistic performances from the leads and exquisite, professional production values that make the world feel truly lived in...  incredible amount of talent on display..."

- SickFlix.net

"Of course, a stage is nothing without the actors who portray the story, and in this regard, Last Orders also delivers... Last Orders is 21 minutes of quiet, ominous British horror. It’s the sort of thing that seems to nestle lovingly into the darkest hours of the evening, when the mundane world is blanketed by night and the people that are still awake are left alone with their thoughts and fears... I’d say it’s well worth checking out."
