I rented this movie because the Martin Cruz Smith book had recently come myway and I found it quite good. The movie is not unfaithful to the book,though it does suffer in comparison in the strength of thecharacterizations- in the book we learn why Youngman Duran, Mancuso's character, is sotortured ...
******SPOILERS****** One of the main reasons that I like "Nightwing" isthat the movie educates the audience about the subject matter in it.You learn more about Vampire Bats in just a five minute conversationbetween Phillip Payne, David Warner, the Bat investigator and WalkerChee, Stephan Macht, the ...
I liked this movie so much that it prompted me to take a trip to NewMexico and to eventually move there!! Unfortunately, due to medicalproblems, I was forced to come back to Kansas, but I will never regretmoving to the Southwest.Okay, so Nick Mancuso, who played Duran, sounded like he was from theBr...
A group of vampire bats descend upon two Indian reservations that standas the ground for a feud between honest Deputy Duran (Nick Mancuso) andmoney hungry Walker (Stephen Macht). Also cruising around the desert isPhillip Rayne (David Warner), a guy who hunts vampire bats. What theheck is going on wi...
I rather enjoyed this mediocre horror film. It succeeds at doing whatit sets out to do -- ratchet up the suspense and provide the viewerwith reckless and unthinking entertainment. And on top of that, thereis some wonderful New Mexico location shooting, which can't bedismissed out of hand. You have n...
I absolutely loved this movie. A young, Hot Nick Mancuso was definitelya bonus! :-) I liked how it delved into Native American lore...thevisions inside the cave were awesome. The familiar faces of StephenMacht and David Warner were also a plus. I can't believe I haven't seenthis movie until yesterda...
This movie's fun, if based on a questionable premise. We have thestereotypical Menace -- in this case, vampire bats -- who have to beexterminated before they Get Us All, and the pivotal character is anAmerican Indian cop.A tribal elder on a reservation is apparently behind the appearance ofthe bats,...
This adaptation of the Martin Cruz Smith novel (scripted by SteveShagan, Bud Shrake, and Smith himself) is actually pretty faithful tothe source material. Ultimately, it's not quite as satisfying asSmiths' story, where the characters were given more depth. But it'sstill a striking and interesting (i...
I love the story line and the scenery. I can watch this movie over andover again. I love the way the main characters interact. Duran is quitea tough guy with a soft touch. He's not afraid to stick up for what isright. Duran's relationship with Anne shows depth. Anne is fighting thegood fight. Her is...
"Nightwing" is two movies crammed together into one. Or story begins at anIndian Reservation where two factions are butting heads over the future ofthe tribe. One set of characters wants to preserve the ancient rituals andreligion of the community, while others want to build new schools andhospitals...
Not that I can think of any others. In fact, the only other killer batmovie I know of is "Bats" and it looked really bad. This one though Iliked...as a kid anyway. It used to come on HBO and Cinemax all the timewhen I was a kid and I watched it numerous times, it was a horror movie thatwas PG and...
When a series of strange deaths surrounding an Indian reservation areshown to be the work of vampire bats, a scientist enlists help from alocal priest to help rein in the beasts' rampage before they can spreadout to other areas.A pretty average creature feature, this one's watchable but certainlynot...
From Arthur Hiller Director of 'Silver Streak' 'Love Story' 'TheHospital' and many other great films comes 'Nightwing' Nick Mancuso isthe deputy tribal policeman, who in a race against time to stop avengeful shaman elders 'curse' on humanity due to him being against theexpansion of western Ideals in...
Perhaps we have grown harder to convince since the days when John Fordpassed off Utah's Monument Valley as West Texas, but showing us theGrand Canyon followed by a radio voice locating us near Tucson when themovie was actually made outside of Albuquerque and Santa Fe, NewMexico, just doesn't cut it ...
In case you were hoping to sit back and enjoy a schlocky, over-the-topand typically 70's "nature gone wild" creature feature (in the sametrend as "Frogs", "Squirm", "Grizzly", "Night of the Lepus" or "Day ofthe Animals"), don't even bother to watch "Nightwing"! Yes, this moviebasically handles about...
"They came just after dark. Thousands of them. They filled the sky."Nick Mancuso stars as a deputy of the Maski Tribal Police, faced with amajor crisis along with other tribes in the surrounding territories:migrating vampire bats have a colony hidden in a cave somewhere in oneof the desert mountains...
Two tribes on the reservation. One, the Maski, is protected by DeputyYoungman Duran (Nick Mancuso), and the other by Walker Chee (StephenMacht). the problem is that Chee wants to mine for oil on Duran's partof the reservation in an area that is holy ground.High Priest Abner Tasupi (George Clutesi) h...
This was better than it's rep.A horror film about bats? Why not? It seemed like a good idea. But inMr. Hiller's hands it became a bit more soap opera than horror. That'snot to say there isn't any horror however.The effects sucked. Sorry. It's the only way to describe it. But theatmosphere was great....
In this movie a educated Idian who has become rich wants to becomericher by destroying tribal lands and ruin the environment by stripingthe area for the shale oil reserves, BTW you cant drill to get it youstrip mine it out. An old Indian, Durans "granfather" calls on thespirits of the tribal ancient...
This movie is beautifully shot in the breathtaking reservation area ofNorthern New Mexico. It has some really fine actors - some of themunfortunately wearing "Indian" pancake. And it has some really foolishideas about, like, man, our cultural priorities. ...Man.Released at the tail-end of the first ...
For the lovers of the truly idiotic, there's 1979's Nightwing, athoroughly ridiculous pile of guano pretending to be a serious storyabout Native American mysticism and the dangers of great, winged hordesof needle-toothed rodentia.What makes Nightwing so embarrassing is that it's so very watchable.Yo...
Okay, it's not a good movie, how could a movie about a plague of killervampire bats in the American desert possibly be good? Especially with allthe corpses covered with bat pee, and a mad scientist played by a ham badactor?But it has some redeeming qualities. It's set on a beautiful southwesternIn...
"Nightwing" is one of those rare movies that is far more entertainingthan it should be, and most definitely the film never allows a fewfacts to get in the way of imaginative story telling. It has a plethoraof misinformation regarding vampire bats. Nevertheless "Nightwing" hassome of the finest south...
How many movies about killer bats do you know of that are actually anygood? With "Nightwing" I believe I may have stumbled upon one that'sactually a bit better than the generic "Bats" (1999), one I deemed tobe the best (as in: all others were worse) I've seen so far. MixingIndian mysticism & science...
The only interesting thing about this dud is the title. The film itselfis not even remotely scary. Nick Mancuso is a deputy trying to figureout why bats are killing livestock, horses, etc...Kathryn Harrold is ableeding heart doctor working at an Indian reservation & Stephen Machtis on hand too, thou...
