Graveyard Shift, 26 December 2004
Author: dawson-michelle from United Kingdom

I did not think this film was bad, in fact I enjoyed it and I was surprised, my usual 'tipple' are 1930's black and white horror, usually I do not like modern horror but this film was Shown over Christmas 2004 on British TV and I thought I would watch it, I am glad I did.... Why??? A uncle of mine used to have a farm and he was plagued with rats, there was hundreds of them, the dogs would go mad... ...in one week we finished of some 500+ in one day saw over 250+ and... I once heard a Vicar/Preacher talk of meeting some thing strange when he was in a graveyard one night, some thing over eight feet tall and very evil looking, he was serious, very very serious.... There are some very strange things on this Earth... Do watch this film.... Martin Dawson
