Professor hires a spaceship to get to the source of weird signals from deep space. The trip is cut short however when the ship's computer gets jealous because the captain is in love with one of the female passengers and it gets homicidal.
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.
