I'm a big fan of horror comedies, so I was pretty darn excited to read about "The Night Shift," a promising new independent film brought to us by Fighting Owl Films. The film, based on a short story of the same name, follows Rue, the undead caretaker of a cemetery, who must protect the graveyard from it's supernatural inhabitants.
From the official website: 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 cantankerous "residents" that were anything but resting in peace? That's the situation for Rue Morgan, night watchman extraordinaire, in this rollicking supernatural adventure-comedy. 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. It's an okay eternity--until a scourge of paranormal occurrences leaves Rue not only watching the cemetery, but also watching his back! Based on the hit short film that critics have called "delightful", "charming", and "unapologetically goofy", The Night Shift is guaranteed to be the most fun you've ever had in a cemetery!
From the looks of the trailer, I know I will be looking forward to this one! Check out The Night Shift Official Site to read more about the movie, cast and view the short film in which the feature length movie was based on. And be sure to follow Fighting Owl Films on Facebook and Twitter.
