A forgotten but highly entertaining piece of psychological horror comes to Netflix with a chilling Cillian Murphy

  • 15

The fear of flying is a relatively common phenomenon and quite understandable actually. After all, you are locked in between tons of fuselage that are suspended in the air almost in a way that defies nature. Although the scariest thing about getting on a plane is that it can touch you next a heavy passenger that makes the experience unbearable. Or even threaten you.

With that end plays one of the most entertaining but forgotten movies of the 2000s as it is ‘Night flight‘, which has been recently added to the Netflix catalog. This adult and disturbing thriller, with quite a bit of psychological terror, is signed by a master of genre cinema such as Wes Craven, who has founded great franchises such as ‘Scream’ or ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ as well as authoring other classics such as ‘The Last house on the left’.

Starring in the film are Rachel McAdams and Cillian Murphy, the latter especially recognized for his role as ‘Peaky Blinders‘ and in Christopher Nolan’s forthcoming ‘Oppenheimer’ film. The latter plays one of the most terrifying roles of him, giving life to a disturbing plane passenger who begins courting the character of McAdams and then reveal to him in mid-flight that his life and that of his father are in danger unless he attends to your requests.

Unlike Craven’s other films, which are mostly marked by the supernatural, ‘Night Flight’ is committed to a more disturbing and psychological terror, while at the same time pulling elements of a commercial thriller to become truly entertaining. Its risky combination of tones stands out, beginning as a somewhat twisted romantic comedy to do an exercise in high-flying tension and ending in a more unleashed and even playful as well as dark way.
