Things get tense in creepy new trailer for Ronald D. Moore's Helix

We're now just months away from the premiere of Helix on Syfy, and we've finally got a proper trailer to creep us out.

Details surrounding Battlestar Galactica reboot mastermind Ronald D. Moore's new series have been slowly oozing out for the last year, and we get more and more excited to see it every time we hear something new, but on the trailer front things have been mostly quiet. Sure, we've gotten a few very atmospheric teasers, but very little in the way of action. That all changed this week with Syfy's new trailer, which features much of the cast, plenty of tension and lots of The Thing-style medical paranoia as that menacing black ooze begins to settle in.

In case you haven't heard by now, Helix is the story of a group of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control who arrive at an arctic research facility to investigate a new pathogen, only to find that what's broken out there is much more than a simple disease. As things escalate, they realize the future of mankind could be at stake. In addition to Moore, the creative team behind the show also includes executive producers Lynda Obst (Contact) and Steven Meade (Lost and The X-Files), so there's plenty of genre credibility right off the bat.

Check out the trailer below, but be prepared to have some hand sanitizer standing by when you're done, because this thing will get under your skin. If you like what you see, head over to the Helix homepage on Syfy's website to learn more about the show, the cast and more. 

Helix premieres Jan. 10 at 10/9C on Syfy.
