Genre favourite Brea Grant moves back behind the camera for just her second feature – and her first full-length outing since 2013’s Best Friends Forever – with organ trafficking chiller 12 Hour Shift.

Putting together a great cast that includes the likes of Angela Bettis, David Arquette and wrestling legend Mick Foley (along with British actress Chloe Farnsworth), Grant’s opus looks set to be one of the highlights of the festival.

Here’s the synopsis:

It’s 1999, the Y2K bug crisis is news, and at a seedy Arkansas hospital, junkie nurse Mandy (MAY’s Angela Bettis) is about to work a double shift. But patient care is not top of her agenda. She’s in the organ trafficking business with her erratic cousin Regina who is about to pick up a kidney from her and take it to the dealers. But the kidney gets misplaced, and Mandy must find another source, or else she’s toast. Then her brother and a convicted killer are brought into the ER. What else could possibly go outrageously and gruesomely wrong?

And here’s a trailer:

12 Hour Shift gets its UK premiere at Arrow Video Frightfest Digital on Friday, August 28.
