Delivery guy Lex is none too pleased
when he ends up having to make a delivery to a graveyard at
night. Since he believes heís delivering something thatís
probably illegal, however, he thinks nothing of the
location. Then his client shoves him into a mausoleum and
traps him there with Sam, whoís been there for months.
The Graveyard Shift Blues
is a very strange, dark story, but I liked it.
Sympathizing with Lexís plight after he was locked up in the
tomb was easy. I would be scared if someone trapped me in a
cemetery, too! Sam, the other captive, was an interesting
character. In some ways, heís resigned to his fate, yet at
the same time, he keeps himself in shape and isnít ready to
give up hope. Whether it was just proximity and a shared
need for comfort, or real love that developed between the
characters, it was emotional and felt real. The confining,
dark atmosphere of the story lightened a bit as they came
together. While I donít think this story would be
everyoneís cup of tea, if you like dark paranormal tales,
youíll like Graveyard Shift Blues.
