Released:

Rating:
R
Stephen King's Graveyard Shift is a 1990 American horror film directed by Ralph S. Singleton and starring David Andrews, Kelly Wolf, and Stephen Macht. The film tells the story of Warwick (Macht), a textile plant manager living in Maine and running a less than legal factory. When inspectors come to investigate after a fatal accident occurs at the plant, Warwick rounds up a group of financially desperate men to help clean the filthy factory. As they venture into the bowels of the factory, they discover a rat's nest far bigger than their imaginations could have provided. The giant man-eating monster that lurks within the dark depths of the plant is especially hungry now that he has been disturbed.
