Rodent-phobic viewers, be warned! GRAVEYARD SHIFT begins with a lone worker running a cotton-processing machine replete with sinister iron combs when he notices a bevy of rats staring at him; tossing one into the combs to destroy it, he is himself attacked by a flying creature. The new job opening at the local textile mill is filled by drifter David Andrews, who works with exterminator Brad Dourif to slaughter the rats and prevent the factory from being shut down. Featuring exceptional set design (the factory teems with Lovecraftian hallways & Hammer-inspired mass graves), this genuinely creepy film will be a hit with any fan of Stephen King or the vast “When Animals Attack” horror subgenre.
