The synopsis...

What if you could live forever? What if you had to spend that eternity stuck in a cemetery with only a limbless corpse for a friend, and inmates that were anything but resting in peace?

Rue, along with his buddy Herb, spends his nights watching out for zombies, and his days dreaming of a date with hard-nosed day-shifter, Claire (FightingOwl).

Release Date: Currently playing.

Rating: PG-13.

Writer/Director: Thomas Smith.

Shot in a high quality, digital format "The Night Shift," in colour begins in a suitable location for a horror film, the graveyard. And this fourth film from the "Fight Owl Films," production company does deliver a horror short that is suitable across age groups.

Introducing the characters quickly the story of an undead caretaker who maintains the grounds does have a certain dark appeal. Rue Morgan (Khrisian Fulmer), the caretaker fights off the undead minions of the underworld including a "vengeance demon," all while carrying a skeletal corpse on his back. Soren Odom is the voice of the corpse and all of the acting within the film is well done with a flair for subtlety.

Mostly occurring during the twilight hours "The Night Shift," adds a devilishly, scary arch villain near the finish while adding comedic lines throughout. At just over twenty minutes this horror short shows promise from a talented group of filmmakers. See this film below at the "Fighting Owl Films," homepage and support quality, independent filmmaking.
