ODDITIES THEATER: Nightflyers (1987)

It’s Saturday! You know what that means… it’s time to GET WEIRD.

This week’s film comes as a recommendation from @ThomasOtterman (Twitter). This one’s managed to fly under my radar all these years, so I’ll be watching it for the first time right along with you all. From the freeze frames to the plot description, this movie seems right up my alley.

Wanna read the plot description for yourself? Here you go: “A group of scientists set out on a space voyage to find a mysterious alien being, and in the process they are victimized by the ship’s malevolent computer.”

Yeah, yeah… I know. Sounds like familiar territory. Do we really need another film about a killer spaceship? The answer is yes. Always yes.

Cool poster, bro.

Oh, did I mention it was based on a George R. R. Martin (author of A Game of Thrones) story? Sounds promising. Only one way to find out…
