Press Release: Night Shift

LOS ANGELES, CA - December 7, 2010 - Fighting Owl Films released a new trailer for their independent adventure-comedy, The Night Shift. The teaser, viewable on the official website (, introduces some of the main characters and gives the audience a glimpse of the film's supernatural storyline.

The Night Shift is the first feature for the Mobile, Alabama based film group, and is based on their short of the same name. The short became an online hit, receiving considerable praise that includes a positive review from no less than genre titan, Fangoria.

From the official website: What if you could live forever? What if you had to spend that eternity stuck in a cemetery with only a limbless corpse for a friend, and cantankerous "residents" that were anything but resting in peace? That's the situation for Rue Morgan, night watchman extraordinaire, in this rollicking supernatural adventure-comedy. Rue, along with his buddy Herb, spends his nights watching out for zombies, and his days dreaming of a date with hard-nosed day-shifter, Claire. It's an okay eternity--until a scourge of paranormal occurrences leaves Rue not only watching the cemetery, but also watching his back! Based on the hit short film that critics have called "delightful", "charming", and "unapologetically goofy", The Night Shift is guaranteed to be the most fun you've ever had in a cemetery!

The Night Shift is currently in post-production and seeking distribution. The trailer, as well as information on the film and its creators can be found at the movie's official website, More about the company, as well as the original short, is available at To stay abreast of the latest news and information regarding The Night Shift, follow Fighting Owl Films on Facebook or Twitter.
