Night Life is a 1989 American zombie comedy film directed by David Acomba and starring Scott Grimes, John Astin, and Cheryl Pollak. It centers around a high school nerd named Archie Melville who is harassed from beyond the grave by the zombie corpses of his former high school bullies (recently deceased) after they are brought back to life by a freak lightning storm. It is also known under the name Grave Misdemeanors.
Archie Melville takes a job with his Uncle Verlin at the mortuary. When the local bullies die in a car crash, they are taken to the mortuary, where they become reanimated. The bullies, now zombies, become even nastier and begin to torment Archie and his friend Charly.
