Syfy has released a haunting new trailer for Helix — the highly anticipated TV series from Battlestar Galactica showrunner Ronald D. Moore. The series, which was officially greenlit last month, revolves around a group of scientists investigating a possible disease outbreak in the Arctic. Their research eventually leads them down a more dystopian path, culminating in what the network describes as “a terrifying life-and-death struggle that holds the key to mankind’s salvation or total annihilation.”
The show’s first trailer, embedded below, doesn’t offer many more plot details, though it certainly gives a clearer idea of its tone. Set against a snowy white backdrop, the camera slowly pans across the Arctic before cutting to a shot inside the team’s lab. The clip’s Lost-like sound effects reach a crescendo as the camera passes through each white door, before reaching an enigmatic, and undeniably creepy climax.
