The dead are up to no good in the Syfy series "Ghost Wars" and it looks like Avan Jogia is the only one who can save his town from the spooky supernatural phenomena. The "Victorious" star headlines the new horror drama that recently had a presentation at the San Diego Comic-Con.

The new supernatural show is currently being filmed in Vancouver but the "Ghost Wars" panel at SDCC has just debuted its creepy trailer. Can Roman Mercer find a way to deal with the hauntings in Port Moore?

'Unholy sh*t' in Alaska

The cast of "Ghost Wars" made an appearance in Room 6A at SDCC last Saturday.

According to Syfy Wire, the panel was attended by lead star Avan Jogia, Vincent D'Onofrio, Meat Loaf and Kandyse McLure. Showrunner Simon Barry also joined the presentation along with executive producers Michael Frislev, Dennis Heaton and Chad Oakes.

In addition to answering questions about the new Syfy series, the presentation included the unveiling of the "Ghost Wars" trailer. Not surprisingly, there was plenty of mysterious and disgusting footage to set the mood for the show's fall release.

Dead people and weird stuff

The trailer opens with former "Sons of Anarchy" star Kim Coates talking to Avan Jogia's Roman Mercer in a diner (via YouTube). It is instantly established that the young man sees strange things and is somehow able to communicate with the dead.

Unfortunately, seeing dead people is not the only thing Roman has to worry about.

There are several scenes depicting corpses popping up in unexpected places as well as cadavers suddenly becoming animated.

Needless to say, D'Onofrio's preacher is trying to keep the townsfolk calm. Hopefully, a young hero will find a way to make things right in Port Moore.

What to expect in 'Ghost Wars'

During the show's SDCC panel, Kandyse McLure stated that "Ghost Wars" features "an intersection of science and spirituality."

"It makes you question what you believe and why you believe what you believe," the actress told the audience last Saturday.

However, there is a dark side to the horror drama as well.

Vincent D'Onofrio confirms that the hauntings have a grim effect on the residents of Port Moore. "Good people get really good and bad people get really bad," the "Daredevil" actor shared.

Luckily, the small Alaskan town already has its own defense in Roman. Avan Jogia admitted that although his character is viewed as an "outsider" by the townsfolk, "his ailment becomes a gift" when bad things start happening.

"Ghost Wars" is expected to air on Syfy this fall.
