Graveyard Shift (1990) - Ralph S. Singleton

This movie is horrible, its a horrible story, and it has horrible actors. It has many of the marks of a horrible movie. Terrible and off dubbing also it never gives a clear shot of the antagonist. Hell even the tag line is horrible; "Stephen King took you to the edge with The Shining and Pet Sematary. This time......he pushes you over." REALLY!

Brad Dourif is one of the actors that the director must of spent most of the budget on. This is actually the second movie that I have reviewed with Mr. Dourif in it. I reviewed Halloween 2 where he plays a sheriff. This actor is actually pretty awesome, he has been in like everything horror. From Blue Velvet and the X-Files to being the voice of everyone's favorite plaything Chucky.

Well this movie, if you haven't seen it please don't rush out. This is quite possibly the worst Steven King adaptation I have ever seen. I am going to spoil whatever their is to spoil here. The main bad guy/girl/thing is a giant rat. That's the antagonist, is a huge fucking rat. I haven't read the book or short story or whatever but this movie is a great deterrent.

I wouldn't even want to dignify this movie with an actual number score, but I am going to have to give it something I guess... 1. I do not recommend seeing this movie, but I do recommend not seeing it. Please do not see unless you are some hardcore Brad Dourif freak who cant go on in life without seeing every movie he has done.

  • It had a budget of 10.5 million (WOW, it knocked me on the ass to know this)
  • Filmed in Main at the historic Bartlett mill they renamed it "Bachman"
