ABC must really be high on its upcoming spooky series Happy Town as it's posted the first 14 minutes of the show on Hulu; view the clip below.

We're pretty sold on anything that kicks off with Elvis Costello's "Watching the Detectives," but the clip also highlights the creepy show's small-town, horror-movie vibe.

And like CBS' Harper's Island before it, Happy Town pushes the limits of prime-time TV gore without actually showing anything gruesome.

There's also a full complement of attractive, quirky, chatty characters with great hair. And there are some missing people and a presence called "The Magic Man." ...

As for what the show's actually about, we have no freakin' clue. But it's got a killer cast, including Sam Neill, Amy Acker and Steven Weber, as well as star Lauren German, the chick from Hostel: Part II, and Lost's Mr. Friendly, M.C. Gainey.

Happy Town premieres at 10 p.m. on April 28.
