West Coast Premiere
Stênio works the nightshift at the local morgue in an incredibly violent Brazilian city. His marriage is failing and his wife treats him like dirt, while his son constantly disrespects him. Stênio feels like a complete loser, but not in every aspect of his life.
What keeps him going is his extraordinary gift of talking to the mutilated cadavers he is charged with sewing up. Primarily gang members and criminals, Stênio converses with the city’s slain, learning their endless, potentially prosperity-bearing secrets.
When he makes the fatal error of acting on the information he receives from a particularly nasty corpse, Stênio unwittingly invites violence and mayhem to his doorstep.
To say more would be to spoil the surprise. THE NIGHTSHIFTER is a terrific genre film; tense, terrifying and relentlessly creepy, this gem offers up exceptional gory set pieces to sate hardcore horror fans. It’s also a whole heap of fun and once it has grabbed you by the throat, it doesn’t let go until it’s thrilling climax.
