Inspired by director/co-writer Karlee Boon’s experience as a young woman in the food service industry, and her own desperation to leave home after high school, Night Shift – led by a diverse, majority femme cast and crew – is about feeling lost and ultimately finding the power to change it.
When will I learn that a great premise doesn’t necessarily mean a film will be great or even good. Just like the enjoyable Werewolves Within, the similarly titled Beast Within is a werewolf whodunit that references the party game. However, that is where the similarities end. The acting in Beast Within is woeful. There is no emotion, no chemistry, and no believability in most of the characters. When the werewolf is finally revealed, that particular character becomes a bit more three-dimensional and believable. I don’t know how much of the film’s issues lie with the bad writing or directing.

“The odds against them were 10,000 to 1…but what the Hell!”
The Howling is rightly seen as one of the best werewolf novels and one of the best eighties’ horror film adaptations. However, it also spawned a series of sequels which have awful review scores, and just a few years ago another sequel to the original film was published in the comic book format. But, how does the comic book series compare to one of the strangest and most disappointing sequels ever made? And what about the novel?
“The rocking, shocking, new wave of horror!”

“There are some very good reasons to be afraid of the dark.”
On the streets, he bestows crimson kisses no woman can resist, but in the sheets there exists a night monster… with the blood lust of a savage beast!
