The Night Flier (1997)

A bloody trail of bodies has left the police stumped as the murderer travels from airport to airport in his mysterious black plane. Tabloid reporter Richard Dees is hot on his trail, however, and will stop at nothing until he has discovered the truth behind The Night Flier! Miguel Ferrer stars as the crass and cutthroat reporter, Richard Dees, in another playfully over-the-top performance that lends a villainous creed to his character. Although we do not encounter the toothy Dwight Renfield in his full form until the final scenes, we are privileged enough to see the results of his insatiable bloodlust in a gory spectacle of ghoulish delight all throughout the film. The KNB team outdoes themselves once again with a number of impressive effects for this low-budget sleeper, including a surprisingly original design for the film's fanged villain. There is little mystery or suspense to be found in the plot, itself, but Ferrer carries the film with fiery performance, alone. THE NIGHT FLIER is a cheesy popcorn flick at best, but it is an enjoyable one, nonetheless.

Rating: 6/10.
