Most people know that astronauts preparing to go on deep space missions undergo serious mental evaluations. That kind of long, dark disconnection and isolation is too much for some to handle—and being able to handle it, while doing your job, is a huge priority.

That idea is taken to another level in 400 Days, a new movie from SyFy Films that hits theaters and on demand January 16. In the film, a group of astronauts (including ones played by comedian Dane Cook and Superman actor Brandon Routh) are put into a simulation to test their mental strength. However, as things start to get weirder and weirder, the astronauts begin to wonder, is this horror for real? Or is it part of the simulation?

All kidding aside, this trailer isn’t half bad. It left me wondering what happens next and really, want more can you ask for?
