…. Horror Are a Perfectly Terrifying Duo.

"A few decades ago, George R.R. Martin read a statement from a critic that said science fiction and horror should never go together. That was what inspired him to write Nightflyers, a 1980 sci-fi horror novella that's been adapted into a new series on Syfy. We talked with some of cast and crew of Nightflyers about why horror and sci-fi go so well together. In short: You can show them how the world could be, while also scaring their pants off.

At New York Comic Con, we had a chance to chat with actor David Ajala (who's currently also playing Manchester Black on Supergirl), showrunner Jeff Buhler, and producers Gene Klein and David Bartis from Syfy's Nightflyers about how their show blends sci-fi and horror, and what makes those two genres so compatible. You can watch the video above for their reactions. We've also included their quotes below. Enjoy!…."

Alien was such a flop… Those that can't do, criticize.
