New NIGHTFLYERS Trailer Proves George R.R. Martin is Even Deadlier in Space

Syfy‘s upcoming new series Nightflyers—an adaptation of George R.R. Martin‘s 1980 novella of the same name—is a story the author describes as “a haunted house story on a starship,” or, if you prefer your horror more gory, as a sort of “Psycho in space.” And based on the first look at the show, things out in the cosmos will be even bloodier than they are in Westeros. Only in space you can’t flee across the Narrow Sea to safety.

In the first teaser for the show, which also includes some behind-the-scenes looks, we get a glimpse of just how gruesome things will get for the deep-space travelers of the Nightflyer. Because while normally the worst thing that can happen on spaceship is something catching on fire, that usually doesn’t result in so much blood splatter on the walls and floors. Although catching on fire still looks pretty horrible.

We know the people involved with any new show will give their series a hard sell, but we’d be lying if we denied we’re pretty excited after hearing supervising producer Sean Ryerson describe it as “just f***ing awesome.” That’s really all we want from a George R.R. Martin sci-fi horror story.

And even though filming required them to build “acres of spaceship,” one of the most haunting aspects of Martin’s story is the claustrophobia felt by its passengers. This teaser certainly seems to capture that feeling of being trapped while the walls–and far worse–close in on them. Because as awful as the White Walkers are, at least you can still see them coming.

Nightflyers arrives on Syfy this fall in the US, and on Netflix internationally. (Check out the Netflix teaser below):
