The indie film is like the blood that courses through the veins of the horror genre. Every big time horror personality started making little indie flicks (some of which have become classics) so that’s why we pay them so much attention around these parts. You never know where the next Romero or Carpenter will come from. That being said, one flick we’ve been keeping an eye is is The Night Shift, and now that the movie has wrapped — it’s poster time!
The Night Shift is a supernatural-adventure-comedy about Rue Morgan, the undead night watchman at Pinewood Oaks Cemetery. Rue, along with his buddy Herb, a limbless corpse, spends his nights trying to keep the cemetery’s cantankerous residents in and his days dreaming of a date with hard-nosed day-shifter Claire. It’s an okay afterlife until a scourge of supernatural occurrences leaves Rue not only watching the cemetery but also watching his back!
While we have no idea what type of distribution is in store for this flick, producer/director Thomas Smith says the current plan is to take it out to film festivals in the hopes of drumming up interest.
