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 to 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 is 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 have ever imagined.
Based on a short story by Stephen King, it's more mystery-thriller than a vampire-action-packed movie. Till you reach the surprising and really great end of the film - it will give you the creeps! They went full throttle there, which changes the film's character from a mere average/B-movie output to an exciting and intriguing work. Good one!
