BRAND NEW TRAILER for Dennison Ramalho’s feature debut THE NIGHTSHIFTER
Brazilian writer/director Dennison Ramalho has mad a reputation for himself with the shorts LOVE FROM MOTHER ONLY and NINJAS. He’s also written the script for Coffin Joe’s comeback film EMBODIMENT OF EVIL and contributed a segment to ABCS OF DEATH 2 (“J IS FOR JESUS”)
His debut feature THE NIGHTSHIFTER will make its world premiere at this year’s Fantasia Film Festival. The official synopsis sounds quite promising…
Stênio works the night shift at a morgue in a very large, very violent city. On the job, he sees cadavers in every conceivable state, often the victims of horrific gang warfare. While most would be rather unsettled by it all, Stênio is not. For the dead speak to him. Not in any metaphorical sense but in a very literal way. Stênio was born with an occult gift and while not everyone would be at ease conversing with mutilated cadavers on slabs, he has learned that there are endless secrets that can be gleaned this way. Related to crime. To prosperity. One day he learns a terrible secret about people in his own life. He commits the sin of acting on knowledge obtained from the dead, cursing himself and those dearest to him in the process.
WORLD PREMIERE at Fantasia International Film Festival
