Here’s The First Gory Look At George R. R. Martin’s Sci-Fi Thriller Series

The first peek at George R. R. Martin’s sci-fi horror film has been released, and it’s literally about as far away from Westeros as you can get.

Still, the blood, gore, and mayhem seems the same.

Nightflyers, based on the acclaimed author’s 1980 novella, follows the fraught expedition of eight scientists – plus a telepath – as they careen towards the very edge of the solar system. But in typical George R. R. Martin fashion, things get rowdy. Quickly.

In a new morsel of footage, the author himself calls the 10-part SyFy series “a haunted house story on a starship.” That’s not exactly an original concept right now, but you’d have to give this one the benefit of the doubt.

With an ensemble cast including Australia’s own Angus Sampson, Nightflyers will premiere later this year.
