Format: DVD
The Night Flier is easily one of the best film adaptations of a Stephen King piece of fiction. One thing this movie does is prove that a movie can be very enjoyable without any likable characters. The protagonist, Dees, is a successful tabloid reporter who has not produced a front-page story in quite a while. Dees is selfish, chauvinistic, egotistical, and permanently ornery--a complete, all-around jerk. His editor is a younger man who really loves his job, especially when he can put the screws to Dees. The tabloid features stories of alien abduction, grisly deaths, misshapen babies, etc. Both Dees and the editor insult the "hicks" and weirdoes who both supply their stories and purchase their weekly rag. Dees initially turns down the request to do a story on a vampire-like stranger who flies into desolate little airports and kills whomever he finds there, but a subsequent murder convinces him the story is a big one that can get his name and photo back on the front page. To complicate matters, though, a new young reporter whom Dees despises is also assigned the story. The two eventually cross paths in pursuit of the newly-dubbed Night Flier. By that time, Dees is almost convinced that the murderer is actually a vampire. The ultimate and inevitable confrontation takes place in the Wilmington, North Carolina airport. The conclusion of the movie is quite original, perfectly fitting, and eminently satisfying. King's story provides an unusual twist to the often-overdone vampire theme and guarantees the film's great success.
I don't know if this story constitutes an attack on the tabloid news business, but clearly every member of the film's Inside View newspaper operates without morals (never mind journalistic integrity) and without any respect for readers.

Night Flyer is the story of two competing supermarket-magazine journalists on the trail of the "Night Flier", the occupant of a lone black Cessna jet, always recorded at the scene of the grisly vampiric mutilation and murders of airport staff and passengers.

Night Flier is a classic King story, in as much as the evil is always rooted firmly in the dark recesses of peoples' minds and memories, something I particularly like about his books and films.

The eeriness of a lone black plane flying from airport to airport apparently untracked, along with its cloaked vampiric occupant make for an interesting combination of technology and old-fashioned horror, and it seems to work pretty well.

The mystery is compunded by the strange behaviour of locals who the Night Flier has interacted with, encouraging the viewer to speculate on just what exactly the Night Flier is.

An entertaining film which certainly has its share of gore, and an interesting ending which, though I never read the story, does seem to display King's imaginitive signature.

Adapted from the short story which can be found in Nightmares and Dreamscapes.
Adapted from a 40 page story this film stayed very true to the book. It actually had a few extra angles then the story which allowed for a much more diverse range of emotions to be felt. If you like vampires or films where you see the mutilation not just hear about it in a coroners account then this is a must.
This is perhaps one occasion where I can say that the movie not only did the text justice but maybe even out shone it.
Well done those involved.

Format: DVD
I must say, I used to see this on display daily in my neighbouring town's Woolworths store whilst on the way home from school five years ago and I used to think 'Not bad looking but I bet it's really corny.' So therefore I didn't buy it. However I had the chance, a year later, to watch it on a cable channel that was having a Stephen King season a year later and boy I'm glad I did. This, along with the original 'Salem's Lot' (don't get me started on the awful 2004 remake) rock! The acting is convincing, the script and scenery is atmosphearic and boy some of the characters are creepy, especially the killer and his victims when they're 'under his charm'.

The film sees this serial killer flying around in a black ceesna skymaster plane to isolated airports and killing people in a vampiristic manner thus leaving all the bodies with hardly a drop of blood in them. Soon a sleazy tabloid newspaper gets hold of the story and the editor sends his star reporter Richard Dees on the story and eventually along with their latest reporter Katherine Blair.

Together they eventually use each others evidence and information to try and track down the psychopathic pilot and bring an end to the trail of bloody bodies.

Miguel Ferrier is, as usual, excellent as the sleazy and extremely arrogant and unlikeable Richard Dees as is Julie Entwistle who is great as Katherine and hot. Dan Monoghan is great as the comical and ruthless editor Merton Morrison and Michael H Moss is really creepy as the Serial Killer going under the name Dwight Renfield. If you haven't seen the film and want to get it, my advice is get it from here because there are two different versions of the front cover, one that stupidly shows the face of the murderer clearly and this one that doesn't (although I wouldn't look at the back of the slip that's inside because that still does).

This is a great, low budget but not crap looking horror film. *****
