I loved this short. I will have to say the vampire was probably the most scariest of any vampire I have ever seen. kudos the guy who brought him to life! ....yeah, i am about to go watch it again! woohoo!
PS...at least we don't have to worry about him twinkling when the sun hits him..har har....har.

Haven't seen this one in a long time. Not a bad TV movie.

I thought this one was rather decent. Really enjoyed Miguel Ferrer.

Night Flier is awesome! I read the short story and thought it was really good, but wondered how they could turn a tale of a few pages into a decent movie-length film. When I saw it I was amazed! Couldn't wait for the bathroom scene...then was gobsmacked with what happened after that!!! Brilliant! Thought the cast were fab! I saw the cinema version, then I bought the directors Cut on DVD, can't tell the difference (unless I were to watch them both at the same time...which ain't gonna happen!)

Probably one of the best (and underrated) Stephen King adaptations of all...and I normally can't stand vampire tales.

Any vampire that goes wee-wee in a public potty is A-O.K. in my book...though I'm suprised that the smell of urinal cake didn't nail him as hard as the old wooden chest compression...

I would have to agree.
The only time I had seen this was once in 1998 on HBO. I recently watched it again and it was just as good as I remember.

A Cool,Creepy little movie.
Due to this film,I refused a free [night time] plane ride with a friend who just got his pilot's license.

I actually thought this movie was rather good. I expected it to be another horrible adaptation, but I was surprised. It's not a great movie, but it is still pretty good.

Loved this film, hard to get a copy in the UK

Hard to get a copy here in the US, as well. Thank God for YouTube! This is one of my favorite King adaptations, all the better because its quality was so unexpected.
I've heard that King liked it so much he co-wrote a screenplay for a sequel, but no takers. Seems incredible to me that they couldn't interest anyone in it - especially given the vampire craze of the last few years. Granted, TNF is more traditional, (i.e. as someone said above, no damn sparkling!) but still.

Though SK is known for the length of some of his novels,I have to say short stories like this,and others are some of his best work in my opinion..one of my favorites is Crouch End,which evokes images of The Mist.. a short story by another prolific author,Canavan's Backyard by Joseph Payne Brennan,and The Dead Valley,by Ralph Adams Cram also go into that genre..something about all you know and hold familiar,suddenly not being familiar at all..disturbing and well played by these authors..there is so much good short fiction out there,short stories fit my reading style welldue to time..Hope you new members enjoy the Board!:smile2:

The region 2 PAL dvd of this film is uncut. Just a more seconds of gore at the climax of the film in different instances.
Anyways, this actually had a short theatrical run, but I can't remember if it was before or after it came on HBO. I can't quite remember if I saw the AD in the newspaper and was like "Hey I already saw this on HBO, thats kinda odd" or if I saw it on HBO and was like "I just saw an AD for this playing in the theaters just a couple weeks ago"

Not a big fan of the movie, found it hard to get into. Maybe I need to watch it again.
