Critic Reviews for The Nightshifter (Morto nâo fala)

All Critics (12) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (1)

  • It's absolutely conventional, combining elements of far more famous (and scarier) horror movies. [Full review in Spanish]

    Sep 9, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Through it all, The Nightshifter captures the dread, mordant humor, and visceral horror of classic EC Comics.

    Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The Nightshifter is at its best when it's focused on the more grounded reality of Stênio's life and the very real and violent world around him.

    Jul 15, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Despite flashes of vicious inspiration, The Nightshifter is mostly content to pummel its distasteful protagonist with tiresome haunted-house shocks.

    Jun 3, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • This tale of a man who can speak to the dead touches on everything from death and loneliness to the desperate, damaging need for male control in a relationship.

    May 24, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The Nighshifter, in weaving together different strands of unique horror subgenres, gives its audience a complete look at a descent into madness fueled by grief and guilt, and a supernatural revenge on a character that is hard to like.

Audience Reviews for The Nightshifter (Morto nâo fala)

  • Oct 13, 2019
    I feel like Shudder (who produced this) may have meddled in the production at some point, since the set-up is so muted and morbidly amusing, and the third act is so conventional, with Stênio's deceased wife Odette attacking his family in familiar demon mode and using all the powers of darkness. It;s a fun film but I thought the idea of 'betraying the secrets of the dead would lead to a more elegant reprisal, and not just slamming doors, flashing knives, and possessed babysitters.The Sao Paolo setting and good performances carry it off but it's a pity it devolves into a domestic dispute since the societal violence and choas seems to be a string factor early in the film. Stênio is a refreshingly despicable anti-hero.
