Richard Dees is a reporter and he is a vampire because he works for a
tabloid and earns his living by writing lurid stories and taking sordid
pictures. He's got a despicable job and he is getting sick of it. Dwight
Renfield is the Night Flier and he is a vampire too, but he is a "real" one
an evil and supernatural creature feeding itself on humans. He flies from
one airfield to another across the U.S. on a black, private aeroplane. Of
course he always leaves bloodless corpses behind him and Dees ends up
chasing him with his tape recorder and camera. When they eventually meet,
the vampire doesn't really feel like killing one of his kind, and he is
ready to let him go. Yet Dees proves his curiosity will always make him
chase people like the Night Flier and he will bitterly regret it. At the end

excellent and the film has no Hollywood-like happy ending. I strongly
recommend it to anyone looking for a nice thrill and a few gallons of
