A junkie nurse gets involved in organ trafficking in "12 Hour Shift"

12 Hour Shift (2020) is a horror-thriller movie with some elements of comedy about a junkie nurse, her scheming cousin and a group of black market organ-trading criminals start a heist that could lead to their imminent demises. It is the debut feature film of Brea Grant, an actress nominated twice for the Daytime Emmy award for her work in TV series Eastsiders (2012– ). She has also been the writer of the screenplay.

The movie is starred by Angela Bettis, a frequent face in Lucky McKee’s films like May (2002), The Woman (2011), and the Masters of Horror (2005–2007) TV series in his segment Sick Girl, and who has also been part of Carrie (2002), Toolbox Murders (2004), and Wicked Lake (2008). Together with her David Arquette, Chloe Farnworth, Mick Foley, Kit Williamson, Nikea Gamby-Turner, Tara Perry, Brooke Seguin, Dusty Warren, Tom DeTrinis, Thomas Hobson, Julianne Dowler, Briana Lane, and Taylor Alden also star.

Set 1999 and over the course of one 12 hour shift at an Arkansas hospital, nurse Mandy (Angela Bettis) is desperate to make it through the night without incident. This is particularly hard to do when you’re an addict and are also involved in a black market organ-trading scheme. When her hapless but dangerous cousin Regina (Chloe Farnworth) messes up a kidney delivery, chaos descends on the hospital as Mandy and Regina frantically try to secure a replacement organ through any means necessary. Things grow increasingly complicated when injured convict Jefferson (David Arquette) is brought in, and events spiral even further out of control.

12 Hour Shift (2020) was part of the Tribeca Film Festival last April where it achieved mostly positive reviews. Magnolia Pictures and Magnet Releasing has scheduled the movie to come out in selected theaters and on-demand on October 2, 2020. Here you can watch its official trailer.
