The Flash III: Deadly Nightshide is a direct-to-video movie from The Flash that puts two episodes of the series of Ghost in the Machine and The Deadly Nightshade.


The Ghost controls the airwaves, tapping into video feeds just as he did back in 1955. The Nightshade, a crime-fighter of that era, resurfaces to fight him with the Flash joining him.

The Flash and the Nightshade team up once again to stop a murderous vigilante who has taken the Nightshade's name.
