Critic Reviews for Nightwing

All Critics (7)

Maybe one of the reasons American Cinema in the seventies was so great is because we could expect to see Strother Martin four times a year.

NIGHTWING isn't a great horror movie per se, but it's a pretty great movie full stop, one that deserves a much bigger cult fanbase.

Dull, slow paced horror about vampire bats is forgettable.

...and still we wait for that one great "killer bats" movie.
