Fear of flying is quite common and quite understandable. In the end, you are trapped between tons of fuselage suspended in the air almost against nature’s laws. Despite this, the scariest part about taking a plane is that it could touch you next to a heavy passenger which makes the experience unbearable. You may even be threatened.
In that connection, Netflix recently added one of the most entertaining but overlooked movies of the 2000s to its catalog, ‘Night flight’. There is quite a bit of psychological terror in this adult and disturbing thriller, which is signed by legendary genre filmmaker Wes Craven, who is known for his iconic franchises like ‘Scream’ and ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street as well as his other classics like ‘The Last House on the Left.
Cillian Murphy and Rachel McAdams star in the film, with Murphy being especially well known for his work in ‘Peaky Blinders and Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film Oppenheimer. One of the most terrifying roles he has played is the character of a disturbing plane passenger who begins courting McAdams and then threatens to murder him if he does not comply with his request.
In contrast to most of Craven’s previous films, ‘Night Flight’ is more concerned with distressing psychological terror while pulling elements of a commercial thriller to become truly entertaining. This film stands out for combining risky tones, beginning as a twisted romantic comedy that builds tension before moving into an unleashed and even playful, yet dark finale.
