Night Flier Director Mark Pavia Explores Sick Nick!





Night Flier Director Mark Pavia Explores Sick Nick!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.

Nice one, Matt.

Yes, THE NIGHT FLIER is a very under-rated King adaptation. That movie is super-cool in a 'made in Canada for TV' kind of way.

But considering the source material and budgetary restrictions I think Mark Pavia did an exceptional job with it. If mainly for the performance of the great Miguel Ferrer. And the genuinely spooky finale.
