Put Event Horizon, Lost in Space and The Expanse into a blender and the resulting cocktail would resemble Nightflyers.
This slick-looking SyFy series is adapted from a novella by George R.R. Martin (which was also the basis for a mediocre movie in 1987) and finds a group of colonists fleeing a doomed Earth in an attempt to make contact with an alien vessel, which may hold the answers to saving the planet. En route to the rendezvous, strange hallucinations begin to affect the crew of the Nightflyer, and a series of brutal and bloody murders ensue. Could a disturbed telepathic passenger be responsible, or has a dark external force invaded the ship? Quality production values, an intriguing central mystery and some bonkers twists make this a series that sci-fi/horror fans won’t want to miss.
