Horror Feature ‘The Hole In The Ground’ Home Release Details Revealed

Vertigo

We’ve just received some new info for the incoming home release for horror piece The Hole In The Ground. The film, which will be released by Vertigo, is described as a bold and brilliantly constructed cross between Pet Sematary and Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and is the debut feature from writer-director Lee Cronin.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Cronin elicits terrific performances from a brilliant cast, particularly Seána Kerslake (A Date For Mad Mary) as a single mother driven to her wits end, and a wonderfully unnerving James Quinn Markey (Vikings) as her son, who might not be what he seems after his disappearance in the forest. Also appearing are Simone Kirby (Peaky Blinders), Steve Wall (Vikings) Eoin Macken and veteran character actor James Cosmo.

Beautifully filmed in the misty, mysterious Irish countryside, and with an ominous, powerful score Stephen McKeon (Black Mirror) that recalls the rank dread of The Witch,

Syfy cancels George R.R. Martin’s Nightflyers after one season

Just a couple of months after its television premiere, Deadline reports SyFy has decided not to renew the George R.R. Martin adaptation Nightflyers for a second season. While the series premiered in December, the cancellation comes just a few weeks after it was made available on Netflix worldwide.

While Nightflyers was envisioned as an ongoing series, SyFy decided it would be best to leave it as a limited series instead. One factor which led to the decision was the series’ ratings, which were not too high when it premiered on television. The first season is still available to watch on Netflix.

This isn’t the only series of Martin’s work that has ended this year as Game of Thrones‘ final season will begin airing in April. Fans of Martin’s have more to look forward to, though, as Hulu is developing two Wild Cards series while HBO is working

It’s one and done for Nightflyers: Syfy has cancelled the space-set horror drama, which was based on the novella by Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin. Per our sister site Deadline, the culprit was low ratings.

‘Nightflyers’: No Season 2 For George R.R. Martin Horror Thriller Series On Syfy

  • Deadline
Syfy has opted not to renew Nightflyers for a second season. A rep for the network confirmed to Deadline that Syfy would not be picking up additional episodes of the high-profile space horror drama based on the novella by George R.R. Martin.

Nighflyers, which went straight-to-series after Netflix came on board as co-producer/international distributor alongside Ucp, had a multi-platform rollout in December, with all 10 episodes debuting across all Syfy platforms timed to the beginning of the linear telecast.

The series’ linear ratings were pretty modest despite stunts that included telecasts with limited commercial interruption across all platforms and weekend marathons giving fans an additional opportunity to catch up on the series.

Nightflyers had been conceived as an ongoing series but I hear that following its freshman season run, Syfy brass concluded that it was better off as a one-off limited series. The options on the cast were let to expire,

TV Review – Nightflyers

Eammon Jacobs reviews the first season of Nightflyers

Nightflyers takes place in 2093 as a crew head towards what they believe to be an alien ship lurking in the depths of space, but as they inch closer and closer it’s clear that a malevolent force has other ideas about their voyage. The series, based on a novella by Game of Thrones‘ George R. R. Martin, makes an interesting promise to the audience in the opening few minutes that set up a particular expectation for the ten-episode run. It’s a brutal beginning that brings a foreboding sense of dread that fills every scene from there on out.

The set-up is that the Earth and its interstellar colonies are becoming overrun with disease, famine and a general panic about survival. The crew of the Nightflyer are heading to find a race they call the Volcryn in hopes that they can give

Exclusive: Eoin Macken on taking on the lead in new Netflix series Nightflyers

  • HeyUGuys
The words ‘Netflix Original Series’ comes these days with much pedigree, and gives us high hopes for science-fiction project Nightflyers – no doubt helped along by the fact that it was born out of the mind of Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin. To celebrate its launch on February 1st, we spoke to leading star Eoin Macken, on his role in the show, and what audiences can hope to expect.

Synopsis

On a mission aboard the Nightflyer, the most advanced ship ever built, a team of scientists embark on an expedition to make first contact with alien life.

‘Close’ Review (Netflix Original)

  • Nerdly
Stars: Noomi Rapace, Sophie Nélisse, Olivia Jewson, Abdellatif Chaouqi, Huw Parmenter, Cherise Silvestri, Indira Varma, Sargon Yelda, Robin Kermode, Charley Palmer Rothwell, Eoin Macken, Akin Gazi, Jonathan Jude | Written by Vicky Jewson, Rupert Whitaker| Directed by Vicky Jewson

Close, directed by Vicky Jewson, is one of latest slug action thrillers from Netflix. Jewson’s film stars Noomi Rapace as counter-terrorism expert Sam who, after a brutal job, decides to scale back and begin working as a bodyguard for young naive heiress Zoe played by Sophie Nélisse. Things go sideways after an attempted kidnapping and the two go on the run in a foreign country with no allies, trying to survive.

Close is about as generic and predictable as any direct-to-video that you’ll come across in your local supermarket bargain bin. Echoing that of extravagant low-budget and low-brow ’90s action films, the narrative on offer is still somehow saturated to

Noomi Rapace in First Trailer for Bodyguard Thriller 'Close' on Netflix

"Let's get one thing straight - I no longer work for you. From now on, you do as I say." Netflix has debuted the first official trailer for a gritty action film titled Close, which will be premiering on Netflix in just a few weeks. Described as an "adrenaline-pumping action thriller", written and directed by Vicky Jewson, the film is about a bodyguard assigned to protect a young woman who is handed the keys to her father's business. When things go wrong and they end up kidnapped, they both must learn to fight back and escape in order to make it home alive. Noomi Rapace stars as Sam, with a cast including Sophie Nélisse, Indira Varma, Eoin Macken, Charley Palmer Rothwell, Akin Gazi, Huw Parmenter, and George Georgiou. This looks like an intense action flick, but also looks cliche with all the usual tropes. Still might be worth a watch.

TV Review: ‘Nightflyers’ on Syfy

  • Variety
TV Review: ‘Nightflyers’ on Syfy
“Nightflyers” begins with a compelling sequence taken from late in its story’s action, in which Dr. Agatha Matheson (Gretchen Mol) is fighting for her life on a space journey gone horribly wrong. She’s fleeing an assailant who seems compelled by something unearthly, and goes on to send a warning to whomever out there is listening not to bring her ship back to Earth but to leave it where it lies, a vessel too compromised to breach our familiar atmosphere. She goes on, within the show’s first five minutes, to kill herself.

It’s a striking opening to a show that doesn’t quite earn it. “Nightflyers,” based on the pre-Westeros writing of George R. R. Martin, is a fine addition to an onscreen canon that’s already well-stuffed — that of the space horror story. But it flails when it comes to doing anything new with a metaphor that’s been worn thin,

Nightflyers Review (Spoiler Free)

Nightflyers is an imperfect but worthy George R.R. Martin adaptation and another win for Syfy.

Books

This is a spoiler-free review.

Let me begin by confessing that I am a huge fan of The Expanse, both the book and the TV series. With that one show, the Syfy Channel raised their profile dramatically among hard science fiction geeks and elevated their programming back to Battlestar Galactica levels. With their newest offering in the genre, Nightflyers, they are poised to do it again. If, that is, the show can achieve enough momentum to break orbit instead of backsliding into the gravity well of schlock.

Before we go any further, we need to be very clear: potential viewers surfing the internet for reviews will hear the inevitable comparison to the 1997 film Event Horizon. It is an easy leap to make, lest we forget that Nightflyers was originally a Locus Award winning novella published in 1980 by George R.
