HBO's spooky 'Sharp Objects' miniseries gets its first trailer

Amy Adams Returns Home in First Trailer for HBO's 'Sharp Objects' (WATCH)

It follows Camille Preaker, a journalist (Adams) who returns to her hometown to cover a string of murders.

Patricia Clarkson co-stars as Camille's mother, with Elizabeth Perkins, Madison Davenport, Chris Messina and Eliza Scanlen all co-starring.

"Sharp Objects" will be the ATX Television Festival's opening night screening and panel, June 7 in Austin, Texas. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a lovely thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town.

A year after "Big Little Lies", HBO is offering a first glimpse at their latest attempt at turning a runaway literary success into TV gold.

All that said, this new mini-series, based on Gillian Flynn's violent novel of the same name, is much more terrifying than B.L.L. was, and even several shades darker than Flynn's own bestseller-turned-blockbuster, Gone Girl. "Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story-and survive this homecoming". All eight episodes of Sharp Objects were also directed by Big Little Liars' Jean-Marc Vallée, which explains the shows' similar aesthetics. One has to wonder if this adaptation might end up being too bleak for general audiences.

Sharp Objects is HBO's newest limited series and it's here to SCARE THE SHIT OUT OF YOU.

Flynn, author of the best-selling Gone Girl and mystery thriller Dark Places, has a penchant for exploring the tragic tales of loathsome, challenging - on the surface, at least - women in her stories.

It's a little hard to gather anything about what we can expect from the adapted story as the trailer doesn't reveal too much.
