Stephen King's the Night Flier

Poor Miguel Ferrer — the man deserves better than this plodding gore-fest. Yet he gamely goes through the motions in Stephen King’s The Night Flier, playing grandiose, hard-boiled tabloid reporter Richard Dees, whose zest for his job is reawakened when he competes with a cutie-pie cub (Entwisle) to nail down a story about a vampire serial killer. That Dees is a blood sucker by profession is the trite ”irony” this most heavy-handed of King tales makes abundantly clear. Oddly studded with moments of farce, had it been 30 minutes shorter Flier might have made a decent X-Files episode. D
