For me, one of the best horror films of the 90s is The Night Flier. The Stephen King adaptation is a terrifically eerie little horror film boasting some fantastic atmosphere and performances, and I’ve always felt its success is largely due to Mark Pavia’s skilled direction. For a while it looked like Pavia was never going to deliver a sophomore effort, but we’re happy to announce that day is finally here!
Coll-Abbitt Productions posted this synopsis on their site today:
House-sitting for the President of the University over Christmas break, Cindy Hart and her college classmates gear up for a crazy night of holiday fun when a massive snowstorm traps them inside without power. Undeterred, they continue to party, unaware of the horror that is about to pay them a visit – a human monster dressed in a red and white suit hell-bent on delivering his terrifying gifts. Written and directed by Mark Pavia (“The Night Flier”).
I’m always excited by the prospect of a new slasher flick, let alone one from a great director. Not to mention the fact that it invokes a wonderfully retro feel from the synopsis alone. Those of you who remember the early David Hess slasher flick To All a Goodnight (review here) will admit the premise is similar – and that has me tickled pink.
