The recipe for a perfect sci-fi-horror story? It surely is the classic story of a group of people slowly being killed one by one as they face some unknown danger. NIGHTFLYERS pays tribute to classics like “2001: A Space Odyssey” and adds a little motherly love like Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho”. The perfect combination for genre film-lovers.
A group of explorers board a chartered spaceship to search the galaxy for a mythical creature. But soon a number of accidents occur which costs the life of one crewmember after the other. The remaining crew finds out that the computer of the spaceship houses the spirit of hologram captain Royd’s dead psychic mother. And “Mum” has gone homicidal!
The special effects of NIGHTFLYERS were made by the people who made “Aliens” and “The Terminator” which adds more quality to the intriguing miniature work and set and sound designs.
