The horror genre has been absolutely killing it lately, pun intended. While the not so distant past saw the same stale franchises and torture porn make their way onto the silver screen, the past few years have been a bit of a horror renaissance. From Jordan Peele's Get Out to James Wan's Conjuring series, there's been no shortage of inventive scary movies as of late. And the upcoming science fiction movie Life will once again bring the genre to space. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds, Life revolves around a crew about the international space station who find not so friendly life in space.

Early footage for Life has been pretty horrifying, and a new NSFW trailer was just released that has the potential to give you nightmares. And it may also give away the film's final conflict. Check it out.

Pretty creepy, right? Let's break down what we've been shown from this new clip- which may just be the best trailer Life has offered so far.

Rather than exposition and set up, the new Life trailer goes straight for the scares. We see the various crew members of the station, and how quickly the shit hits the fan. The chaos starts with with Ariyon Bakare's Hugh, who sees the alien life form attack and break his fingers.

But perhaps the biggest moment from the above trailer comes in the final moments. As the alien life form continues to tear through the space station and its crew, we see a previously released clip, where Ryan Reynolds' character stresses the importance of keeping the alien sample on the station "up here where it's safe".

Cue to the nearly apocalyptic final shots of the trailer. In those moments, we see an escape pod from the space station descending through the atmosphere. It eventually lands in a body of water, but things are still very tense. Considering how the crew of the station will likely drop like flies, could the alien life form have escaped and landed on Earth? This could very well signal an end of the world event, greatly raising the stakes of _Life'_s third act. It's not just the fate of the crew that audiences will fear for, but the world as a whole.

Of course, we don't actually know who or what is in the escape pod. The footage from the end of the trailer could very well signal the safe landing of the crew's final survivor. It seems like Jake Gyllenhaal might be the "final girl" of this horror movie, and the escape pod's descent could easily signify that he made it out alive, a la Sandra Bullock in Gravity. We'll just have to wait and see.

Life is set to hit theaters (as well as our nightmares) this month. You can check out Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds, and Rebecca Ferguson in Life starting March 24th.
