Not your average horror movie...
3 August 2019 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I happened to find "Morto Não Fala" (aka "The Nightshifter") by sheer luck. And seeing that it was a horror movie, of course I had to sit down and watch it. How could I not, when I am a life-long horror fan?

This 2018 Brazilian horror movie was actually a nice surprise of a movie, as it turned out to be rather interesting. And it also had a very interesting and captivating storyline, so I was caught up early on in the movie.

The acting in the movie was good, and I always enjoy watching movies with no familiar faces on the cast list, so I was in for a treat here.

"The Nightshifter" does happen to be sort of generic, in terms of how the storyline and plot is constructed and built, for better or worse. But still, regardless, then I will say that the movie was actually quite enjoyable.

There wasn't really a whole lot of scary things going on in the movie, but director Dennison Ramalho was good at setting the atmosphere and building it up to the point where the audience becomes involved in the storyline.

All in all, "The Nightshifter" is an enjoyable movie, especially if you enjoy horror movies. So if you have no quarrel with non-English language movies, and if you have the chance, then do yourself the favor to sit down and watch "The Nightshifter", because it is quite entertaining.
