Revisiting the film of Stephen King's Graveyard Shift

Rebecca Lea Jul 16, 2017

Our revisiting of the screen adapations of Stephen King's work arrives at Graveyard Shift...

The film: An abandoned textile mill has been re-opened, but is infested with rats and has a basement full of junk that needs clearing out. Tempting a group with double pay, foreman Warwick (Stephen Macht), pronounced 'War-Wick' by everyone in the film, gets them to start cleaning out the basement. Newcomer and seemingly professional drifter John (David Andrews) is part of the group that discovers rats may not be the only thing infesting the tunnels beneath the mill.

'Suits': Is Louis Stealing Harvey’s Clients Away? Watch the Dramatic Confrontation!
Uh-oh, trouble is already brewing in the halls of the newly-named law firm Pearson Specter Litt!

Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) may have reached his goal of becoming a name partner alongside Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) on USA Network’s slick legal drama Suits, but he’s realizing that even he has a lot to learn about the firm’s internal politics.

Unfortunately for Louis, that’s not the way it works, and Harvey makes it abundantly clear when he tells him flat-out that it’s not going to happen.

Turns out, Gerard wants nothing to do with Louis – at all

'Suits' Season 3, episode 12: Law and truth fight it out in 'Yesterday's Gone'

"Suits" is committed to keeping Mike's secret away from Louis Litt, and "Yesterday's Gone" makes it clear why: Louis loves the letter of the law and won't let anything compromise that.

Since the rest of the episode is about people sticking closer to truth than to the law, Louis is in the minority. Maybe that's why he caves to the peer pressure and doesn't destroy Mike when he has the chance.

Is it over? Probably not, but Mike and Harvey at least get a reprieve. Find out how it turns out in this recap.

There's someone more Louis-y than Louis

When Mike got that faked Harvard transcript a season or two ago, it turns out that his hacker made one big mistake: She awarded an A+ in Professor Gerard's ethics class. And no one gets an A+ in that class.

Because of this, Louis knows that Mike could not have

'Suits' Season 3 episode 12 video: Stephen Macht and pleading for Mike in 'Yesterday's Gone'

It's not over yet between Louis Litt and Mike Ross on "Suits" Season 3. In the upcoming episode, "Yesterday's Gone," Louis brings in a Harvard professor, Dr. Gerard (played by Stephen Macht, father of "Suits" star Gabriel Macht), who can destroy Mike's scam altogether.

Videos from the episode show just how serious an issue this is.

Tensions are obviously high in the promo for "Yesterday's Gone." It almost seems like a storm is descending upon Pearson Specter.

All of this is because Louis is convinced that Mike is hiding a secret regarding the younger lawyer's past at Harvard. His own morals don't allow him to just give up, even when Rachel comes to plead on Mike's behalf.

Louis' dilemma is centered on an impossible grade Mike supposedly got from Professor Gerard while in Law School. Considering the unbending nature of the man that Harvey confronts in this final video, Mike definitely needs to watch out.

'Suits' Season 3b teaser trailer and a 'character's life is in danger'

At the NBC cable day for the 2014 TCA press tour, USA released a new teaser trailer for "Suits" Season 3b, which returns in less than two months -- and picks back up with Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) having discovered that there's no record of Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) ever attending Harvard.

"It's going to take a few episodes to get through the Louis portion of it, but it will have ramifications on every character through the last six [episodes]," says creator Aaron Korsh.

Hoffman adds, "As far as uncovering the secret, I think these next six episodes ... in a very smart way, the writers created a much deeper, more dangerous type of situation. It's not something that keeps getting played over and over again. There's a real serious, serious element of deceit."

'Suits' casts Stephen Macht - father of star Gabriel Macht - to guest-star in Season 3

Stephen Macht, the real-life father of "Suits" star Gabriel Macht (Harvey Specter), will appear in an episode of that show's Season 3 winter run.

Macht, an actor with a career spanning more than five decades, will make his appearance in the second episode when "Suits" returns for more of Season 3 in 2014. According to TVLine, he will play Professor Gerard, a notoriously rigid Harvard professor with very high standards.

"He plays an integral role in one of the through-line storylines in the back 6," "Suits" executive producer Aaron Korsh said in an interview. "He does not have a positive history with Harvey Specter. They have a conflictual scene."

Probably best known for playing Trevor Lansing on "General Hospital," the elder Macht's career includes repeat appearances on "Cagney and Lacey," "Knots Landing" and "Murder, She Wrote." The actor has also had a limited academic career as a professor with a PhD in dramatic literature from Indiana University.

Your 2013 Halloween Season TV Preview (abridged) with Schedules

Last year we ran a schedule of every TV/Cable network schedule we could find that could be construed as Horror or Halloween related for the month of October. Let’s just say it proved useful for our readers and even for our staff when they were looking to find something to watch, wanted to program their DVR’s or didn’t want to miss out on some great “live” Horror. Isn’t there something about having a movie fed to you on TV as opposed to watching it on Blu-ray or DVD or streaming? We may not like commercials, but the randomness that you can associate with a TV program itinerary is novel. It removes a little bit of control from the audience who is all to concerned with being in control these days (just look at the reasons behind publishing a piece like this).

Amityville 1992: It’s About Time (1992) Review

Reviewed by Chris Wright,

Directed By: Tony Randel

Written By: John G. Jones, Christopher DeFaria, Antonio Toro

Starring: Stephen Macht (Jacob Sterling), Shawn Weatherly (Andrea Livingston), Megan Ward (Lisa Sterling), Damon Martin (Rusty Sterling), Jonathan Penner (Dr. Leonard Stafford), Nita Talbot (Iris Wheeler), Dean Cochran (Andy)

Some horror fans automatically have a negative connotation attached to franchises with a lot of sequels. Moreover, some have antipathy toward direct to video sequels and make assumptions that because they were not in the theater that they are automatically going to be bad regardless. I have watched the entire original run of the Amityville movies and this could be argued as the best direct to video sequel of the lot. First released by Republic Pictures in 1992, “Amityville 1992” takes the premise of the book it is based on and gives a good outing to a dying franchise.

The plot is that Jacob

Underrated Sequels - 'Amityville 1992: It's About Time'

  • FEARnet
Underrated Sequels - 'Amityville 1992: It's About Time'
  Despite a handful of notable exceptions, horror sequels aren't exactly known for being the greatest movies in the world. Franchises typically overstay their welcome for far too long, resulting in never-ending cash grab sequels that are endlessly inferior to the films that spawned them. For every exceptional sequel like A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors or Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, there are several well past their prime installments like Hellraiser: Revelations and Leprechaun Back 2 Tha Hood, which is why we horror fans tend to look down on sequels, sight unseen.   Unfortunately, because of the proven track record of horror sequels, and the bad feelings that are inherently attached to them, there are a handful of truly impressive sequels that don't get a whole lot of respect, simply because they're either attached to franchises that fans had long given up on by the time they came around,

Saturday Nightmares: Graveyard Shift (1990)

I don't usually like using the term "guilty pleasure" because I rarely feel guilty about the films I like. But this adaptation of one of Stephen King's earliest (and most fun) short stories is such a mixed bag that it's hard to type out any kind of legitimate defense.

It had been quite a few years since I last viewed Graveyard Shift, and so I was curious to see if revisiting it would sustain my initial impression. Over the years I've found that the author's most hardcore fans are the most dismissive of this film, the general consensus being that the filmmakers took an atmospheric and claustrophobic story and failed in recreating any of those feelings. I don't necessarily agree with the assessment, however. If Graveyard Shift does anything right, it's the atmosphere part, the problem being that it never amounts to more than a subpar monster movie -
