Nightwing ()

Without a doubt, the worst movie I ever had the displeasure of paying to see (on a date with Sharon Altman before she was ordered to stop seeing the goyim), Nightwing turns out to be a fine thriller.  It's Stephen King by way of Tony Hillerman as plague ridden vampire bats descend on a Hopi reservation.

Replete with a lone hero tribal policeman, corrupt Indian politicians, a mad scientist, bigoted evangelists & a vengeful shaman, this early effort from Martin Cruz Smith does not measure up to the Arkady Renko series, but it's fun.


Grade: (C+)
