Watch weird, bloody opening to Farscape creator's CW series Cult

One of the most intriguing shows coming up this season is The CW’s Cult, developed by Farscape creator Rockne S. O’Bannon. It’s been described as a mysterious meta-twist on Twin Peaks—and the opening of the pilot episode definitely fits the bill.

The series revolves around a cult series (dubbed Cult), with an investigative journalist looking into the show’s rabid fan base after a fan disappears. It’s definitely a unique premise, but O’Bannon knows how to write his share of quirky characters, and it should be cool to see what he’s cooked up. The only concern is that, with a premise like this, you have to wonder how long it can be sustained. But if it proves too quirky for an audience (even by The CW's standards), it won't survive long enough to matter.

The clip looks like a convoluted mishmash of bloody fingerprints, VHS tapes and static-filled screens. Mysterious, but weirdly cool. Check out the opening credit scene below:

The show premieres Feb. 19. Will you be watching?
