Summary: GRAVEYARD SHIFT is the story of a young man, Stephen Tsepes (Silvio Oliviero) who works the "graveyard shift" driving a yellow checkered cab for the Black Cat Taxi Company. Stephen, who sleeps by day and works by night, is a mild mannered, seemingly ordinary cabbie except for one unique trait - Stephen is a VAMPIRE!
When Stephen falls in love with a mortal woman - Michelle (Helen Papas) it has strange and terrifying consequences for the city of New York, a city already terrorised by a series of particularly savage killings. Graveyard Shift - the cult has started!

Our Ranking

short review:

Shot in veeery stylish and beautiful images, this movie is a visual sensation! Blended with a satisfying love-tragedy and some - unfortunately - not state-of-the-art FX, you will have to get your claws on this one.
