“Feel. Kill. Hate. Burn. Time. Death.”
In the latest intense and unnerving teaser for George R.R. Martin’s upcoming sci-fi/horror series, Nightflyers, a young girl seems to recite some sort of incantation while we’re treated (if that’s the right word) to brief flashes of the rest of the cast in tight, dark spaces looking concerned, being set on fire, being dragged across the floor by some unseen force, and running for their lives. It’s all pretty terrifying, to tell the truth.
Check it out, and be prepared to feel thoroughly creeped out:
Like the previous teaser, it doesn’t reveal much in the way of plot or story details so much as it shows the series' tense and terrifying tone. Martin has described Nightflyers — which is based on his 1980 novella of the same name — as “a haunted house story on a starship,” and: “It’s Psycho in space.” So, yes, that Alien-meets-Event Horizon-meets-Sunshine vibe is definitely conveyed here.
The show stars Eoin Macken (The Night Shift), Sam Strike (EastEnders), Maya Eshet (Teen Wolf), Angus Sampson (Fargo), Jodie Turner-Smith (The Last Ship), Gretchen Mol (Boardwalk Empire), David Ajala (Fast & Furious 6), and Brían F. O'Byrne (Million Dollar Baby).
Nightflyers’ 10-episode debut season airs this fall on SYFY.
