A freaky new teaser for Damon Lindelof’s (Lost) new supernatural thriller The Leftovers has been released, and though it doesn’t feature a smoke monster, it still kind of freaks us out.

Based on Tom Perotta’s novel of the same name, the new HBO series focuses on a community of people left behind after an apparent Rapture-like event. Not surprisingly, when a percentage of the human population totally vanishes into thin air, the people still here go a little crazy.

This teaser shows off some nifty new footage, and by the time it ends, we get a feel for the terrifying insanity that is sure to come as this series digs into the meat of the story. Along with the high-concept premise, Lindelof has also assembled a stellar cast to make it happen. 

Keep an eye out for Justin Theroux, Liv Tyler, Christopher Eccleston, Amy Brenneman, Michael Gaston and Ann Dowd when this new series debuts June 15.

What do you think of the teaser? Can Lindelof recapture the Lost magic, just without all the bitterness at the end?
