Graveyard Shift (also titled Central Park Drifter) is a 1987 Canadian horror film written and directed by Jerry Ciccoritti, and starring Michael A. Miranda (billed as Silvio Oliviero) and Helen Papas. The film was originally entitled Graveyard Shift but when the film was released to video, the title was changed to Central Park Drifter (IMDB info). Supporting roles included Coronor (Michael Bokner), Detective Winsome (John Haslett Cuff), Detective Smith (Don James), and Officer Arbus (Lesley Kelly).


Night brings out the hunger in people, especially a mysterious NY cab driver. He is a powerful vampire. And working the night shift brings a sultry array of sensuous passengers within his grasp. Embracing those ready to die, he controls an erratic but well-balanced vampire realm. Then unexpectedly, he discovers erotic human passion-unleashing a raging, terrorizing evil. When a slew of innocent citizens are senselessly slaughtered, the baffled police must solve a 350 year old mystery of unsated passion.



The film spawned a sequel, The Understudy: Graveyard Shift II, also starring Michael A. Miranda.
