“Constantine,” NBC’s upcoming new series based on DC Comics’ “Hellblazer,” follows demon hunter John Constantine through a modern world fraught with the paranormal and supernatural, and its first official trailer promises real terror.

WATCH:

Beyond the possessions, exorcisms and violent deaths, the trailer implies some fantastic special effects and clever humor from “Criminal Minds” actor Matt Ryan, who plays Constantine. “True Blood” costar Lucy Griffiths plays his demon-hunting partner as the two use the occult to keep Earth from falling into literal Hell.

“Constantine” by “Game of Thrones” director Neil Marshall and “Batman Begins,” “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Man of Steel” executive producer David S. Goyer will air on Friday nights beginning this fall on NBC.
