One of my favorite films to screen at Fantastic Fest 2018 was The Nightshifter. Now, in 2020, the film is finally getting a DVD release. Give the trailer a spin embedded at the top of the article and check out our exclusive clip below.
RLJE Films, a business unit of AMC Networks, has picked up select rights to The Nightshifter from Shudder, AMC Networks’ streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural. The Nightshifter will be released today (January 7th, 2020) on DVD. Directed by Dennison Ramalho (ABCs of Death 2), he co-wrote the script with Cláudia Jouvin (Alone Man) and Marco de Castro (Ninjas). The film stars Daniel de Oliveira (Jean Charles), Fabiula Nascimento (S.O.S.: Women to the Sea 1 & 2), Bianca Comparato (3%), and Marco Ricca (Delicate Crime).
In The Nightshifter, Stênio (Oliveira) works the graveyard shift in the morgue of a vast, violent city. Each night he prepares the lifeless corpses for examination, but he’s never alone. For Stênio can talk to the dead…and they talk back. But when the whispers of the dead reveal secrets of his own life, Stênio unleashes a curse that brings forth unimaginable danger and darkness.
