as an adaptation, this is a catastrophe
Look at these people! Those funny hairdos! All this mist! And listen to the music! Yes, this film was done in the eighties.

I like the eighties, but I don't like this film.

I admit, I had read George R. R. Martin's novella on which "Nightflyers" is based, before, so I was extremely prejudiced in regard to this film. The universe that Martin created in the seventies is the most haunting and beautiful science fiction realm I have ever entered. "Nightflyers" isn't his best story, but it is exciting (Martin couldn't write a boring story even if he tried), it has a nice prologue and a great ending and it is about a hundred times better than its adaptation.

Screenplay is horrible. Production design of the interiors looks very low budget. Cast is mediocre. Editing is confused. Music is forgettable. Yes, there are some nice old fashioned special effects shots, but they don't save the film.

George R. R. Martin's stories and novels have always been too intelligent, too beautiful and too sad to be considered source material for Hollywood blockbusters. Thank god, I should say.
