'Sharp Objects' Trailer: It's Not Safe For You Here

Based on the novel by Gone Girl writer Gillian Flynn, this new series looks every bit as insane and surreal as you would expect from such a twisted but superbly "sharp" mind.

Sharp Objects will also star Patricia Clarkson, Chris Messina, Eliza Scanlen, Elizabeth Perkins and Matt Craven, and it will feature Sophia Lillis of It fame in a supporting role.

Sharp Object's first trailer is creepy, to say the least.

In the trailer, we're introduced to a mentally unstable reporter (Amy Adams), who returns to her hometown to investigate a series of murders. "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". It also has a key collaborator who strings both projects together: Jean-Marc Vallée, who directed the first season of Lies, directed and executive produced Objects as well.

As Camille begins her investigation, we see her at a funeral, falling over in some sort of woods and there's a dollhouse, which is always a bad sign when there's mention of ghosts. While Lies had plenty of dark subject matter, there was a cheeky, comical side to the show that doesn't look to be present in Sharp Objects at all.

This is Flynn's third murder-mystery novel to be adapted for the screen.

Author and screenwriter Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl was the book that put her on the map.

Sharp Objects premieres July on HBO. Grew up in a Mormon family, a member of a religious organization formed in 1830 in the United States, officially called The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints, the girl grew up finding out life was fun just like any other girls of her age.
