We are talking a series opening as jarring as some of the scenes in season 1 of the Walking Dead. – Gerri Mahn, Den of Geek
Syfy’s Nightflyers series is based on George R. R. Martin’s Locus Award-winning novella published in 1980. Starring Eoin Macken, David Ajala, Jodie Turner-Smith and Gretchen Mol, the series is developed for television by Jeff Buhler and features score by Series Composer Will Bates, known for his work “The Looming Tower” (Hulu), “The Magicians” (Netflix) and “The Path” (Hulu). Catch up on all episodes at your leisure: Season 1 is now available on Blu-ray and DVD in stores and online now.
A mixture of organic strings with synthetic beats, the piece is both melancholically beautiful and strangely sinister. It’s a wonderful piece that we highly recommend listening to above. – Jonathan Barkan, Dread Central
NIGHTFLYER SEASON 1 is now available on Blu-ray/DVD (get it here) and On Digital (get it here).
You can attribute much of the atmospheric terror in Nightflyers to Will Bates’ synth-inspired score that recalls old school John Carpenter and Vangelis’ score for the first Blade Runner. – Josh Weiss, SYFY Wire
