The film has a notably "misty" look, blurring both colors and detail. Though "Nightflyers" has never been released on DVD, Blu-Ray or HD-streaming, this was a deliberate choice by the producers, director and cinematographer. They wanted to depict a "dream-like" state in an era before high-definition home video was even possible, much less affordable. See more »
The silly, uninteresting story (a computer that has the mind of a mother with a fixation on her son?) and the annoying overacting of some of the players are the two most important - but not the only - problems with this very, very minor sci-fi flick. However, the effects are good for what they probably cost, and Catherine Mary Stewart shows indications of being a strong female lead - she deserves a better movie. (*1/2)
