Fright Exclusive - "Pirate" Commentary For 'Nightwing'!

19 March 2009 7:55 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Since the Fright Night pirate commentary went over so well, the gang here at Icons thought we'd give you another treat- this time delving deep into the genre treasure chest with a little gem from 1979-- Night Wing! Billed at the time as "bats with wings", it actually has more in common with "nature runs amok" flicks such as Prophecy, though far more subtle. Night Wing fan Jack Morrissey recently reunited the film's stars Nick Mancuso and Stephen MacHt for an ultra rare screening at the Nuart theater in Los Angeles. We say "ultra rare" because the film has never screened anywhere since 1979! In fact, it's not even on DVD! It went over great with a packed full house. Amazing how a film seen in your youth can stay with you. Prior to the screening, Nick Mancuso recorded a pirate commentary moderated by Jeremy Smith, aka Mr. Beaks of Ain't It Cool News fame. »
