My Thoughts:

This is the movie that Jason gets his hockey mask that everyone knows him by. While I did still enjoy this movie... I didn't care for it as much as some of the others. I just found that I didn't really care about most the characters this time around. Shelly maybe an exception there at least he was meant to be a little weird.

My Thoughts:

This is another good installment. I liked the story... I liked the characters. Some decent kills in this one though not as good as some of the others. And then there was the one main twist . Is it possible to like something but at the sametime not be thrilled with it? That is the way I felt here. But over all a fun film.

My Thoughts:

While a decent film I felt this is a step down from the first two parts. I did like the cast and the story was ok... though I did feel my attention drifting away from the movie. I really think it would have been better if they didn't show where the curse came from and all that.

     The Night Flier (1997/United States, Italy)
IMDb |Wikipedia |Trailer |
HBO Home Video (United States)
Director:Mark Pavia
Writing:Stephen King (1947) (Original Material By), Mark Pavia (Screenwriter), Jack O'Donnell (Screenwriter)
Length:96 min.
Video:Anamorphic Widescreen 1.78:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital: 5.1
Subtitles:English, French, Spanish

Stars:
Miguel Ferrer as Richard Dees
Julie Entwisle as Katherine Blair
Dan Monahan as Merton Morrison
Michael H. Moss as Dwight Renfield
John Bennes as Ezra Hannon

Plot:
From Stephen King, the master of horror on page and screen, comes a new tale of relentless terror. Of a modern-day vampire who flies by night, and lands too close to home ... for comfort.

For Richard Dees (Miguel Ferrer) facts are always stranger than fiction. Every headline is a dead-line. Serial Killers, UFO abductions, tales of molestation, mayhem and murder. To some the tales are unbelievable -- but his faithful readers believe. And now there's a new story. The Night Flier. What is it that flies by night in a dark-winged Cessna, lands at secluded airports and brutally murders local residents? Dees begins to follow the unknown killer in a Cessna of his own, uncovering clues that reveal a pilot more terrifying than he could ever have imagined. A creature so untamed by human nature, that their final confrontation will leave no body unbloodied.

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Feature Trailers
  • Production Notes
  • Closed Captioned


My Thoughts:

While not the best vampire film I ever seen it is one I enjoyed a lot, And I am a big vampire fan so I seen many. I really liked the way they made Dwight Renfield (the vampire) look... as well as the effect the vampire's blood had when he effected Richard Dees with it. I also really liked the use of Black and White in that scene. It really enhanced the spookiness of the scene. This is a film I would definitely recommend if you never seen it.
