Bloody Late Shift (2017)

Written, Directed and Edited by Adam Harvey

On a routine night treating unpleasant people, an Emergency Room doctor becomes wary of a polite patient.

Dodging punches and all kinds of bodily fluids are part of the normal night’s work for Emergency doctor Ruth, until she lets her guard down around an unusually respectful patient. His pleasant demeanour hides a dangerous affliction that will challenge Ruth’s bedside manner and her vow to do no harm.

"This is my tongue in cheek metaphor for working in health care- you have to keep your wits about you to prevent becoming a patient yourself, and the ‘nice’ ones are usually the ones to watch out for."
