Storyline:

When an abandoned textile mill is reopened, several employees meet mysterious deaths. The link between the killings being that they all occurred between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. – the graveyard shift.

The sadistic mill foreman has chosen newly hired drifter John Hall  to help a group clean up the mill’s rat-infested basement. The workers find a subterranean maze of tunnels leading to the cemetery—and a giant rat that hunts at night. In the end, Hall is able to kill the giant rat when it gets caught in the grinding wheels of a cotton picker and crushed to death.

Graveyard Shift is a 1990 film directed by Ralph S. Singleton, written by John Esposito and based on the short story of the same name by Stephen King. First published in the 1970 issue of Cavalier magazine, and later collected in King’s 1978 collection Night Shift.
