Julie Goldberg Oliver Rockwell. Pauline White-Kassulke. Italy USA. Growing up, I spent a lot of time around local and regional airports because my grandfather and some of my uncles had small single-prop airplanes. Going up in them triggered migraines but I liked the atmosphere of the little airports themselves and the sense of autonomous travel they serviced. The Night Flier ably captures this feeling, along with late 20th Century trash tabloid journalism and the pleasure of plowing through Stephen King short story collections on trips with my family or over summer vacation when no one was mandating bedtime.

This is one of the most successful King-to-film adaptations because it exceeds its modest aims with creativity to burn, allowing the story to stretch out enough to incorporate character beats…. The Night Flier is one of the lesser known, but really good Stephen King adaptations that is often absent from discussions about the best films his work has inspired.

The plot is a twist on the common vampire story, and focuses on a cynical reporter on the trail of a serial killer that flies a plane at night. The film succeeds due to two key elements - a fascinating lead character and a constantly involving plotline that keeps you interested. The lead performance from Miguel Ferrer is absolutely stellar, and he is helped by a smart script with some great lines. I'd only ever seen this once before about twenty years ago and there were several set pieces and exchanges….

A hard-boiled rag writer competes with a cub reporter on the trail of a mysterious caped figure leaving ripped up bodies at local airstrips across the country. Small-time Stephen King adaptation with a strong and rare lead performance by the late Miguel Ferrer, some grisly KNB effects, and a massacre of an ending with a twist. It's like a more standout Tales fom the Crypt episode padded to feature length. Decent but without a smarmy Ferrer chasing leads through a pretty so-so midsection this wouldn't be half as good.

I fully expect we'll see articles for clicks proclaiming it to be an underappreciated classic if this ever hits Blu-ray though. This, to me anyway, was a classic example of your basic sleeper in the horror film department from the s. I say so because it progressed so well. It seemed to be just what anybody could possibly hope for, penting up its payload of horror for an ending dripping with killer irony and just the best of what you'd could expect. The film is based on a Stephen King short story and most certainly did it justice in the best of ways, capturing King's penchant for making rural east coast the dark side of idyllic Americana.

Plus the vampire is also a pilot with a black Cessna Skymaster tricked out with red velvet curtains, landing in rural airports and leaving…. This movie is about a journalist on the trail of a serial killer.

The entire time, through eye-witness flashbacks, we're shown the killer, but his face is always obscured in shadow or facing away from the audience. Will we see the killer's face? Discover his identity? Our journalist begins to think he's something other than human. And when finally confronted by the killer, who speaks to the journalist from behind him, unseen, our journalist screams, "Show me who you are!

Show me your face! He should have just checked the poster art because some fucking idiot marketing person put the face real big right on it. Review by S B Rosencrans.

I read the original short story and then immediately watched the film and I have to say this is one of the more faithful, underrated King adaptations. Hey, alright! This was pretty great! I remember trying this movie out a while back and being immediately turned off by Miguel Ferrer playing a total asshole. His character is as scummy as they get, and Ferrer plays the part quite convincingly.

Top notch creature effects. First time watch for me. A King adaptation that I somehow missed til now. I was getting slight Salem's Lot vibes and I loveeed the look of the vampire, when he's finally revealed. This was a pretty great murder mystery story, with that small town atmosphere and charm, King is legendary for. Definitely enjoyed it and it needs a blu ray release!

What in the heck was up with those paintings in the editor's office? Pretty good for a movie with a vampire named Dwight.

Way better than I remembered. Not feeling it. Surprisingly, despite the film being mostly catching up to the titular pilot from….

Two investigative reporters for a tabloid magazine track down across country "The Night Flier", a serial killer who travels by private plane stalking victims in rural airports. One of the reporters, Richard Dees, begins to suspect that "the Night Flier could perhaps be a vampire". Olsen Elizabeth McCormick J. David R.


Richard Dees is a cynical tabloid reporter whose motto is "Never believe what you publish and never publish what you believe". Merton Morrison, editor-in-chief at the tabloid Inside View , confides a case to him about a bloody murder in a rural airfield , committed by a passing aviator who thinks he is a vampire and registered under the name of Dwight Renfield. Dees refuses but reverses his decision when two more murders are committed in another airfield, the victims drained of their blood. He recovers the case from Morrison, who in the meantime had entrusted it to the novice reporter Katherine Blair, and leaves in the footsteps of the killer aboard his own light aircraft.
