AMC is pulling out all the stops to promote its new series Preacher — adapted from the Garth Ennis DC comic of the same name by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen — and has tried to get us all hooked by releasing the first five minutes of the pilot.

And don’t let the title fool you — this is no feel-good Jesus show: Bad things happen very early on and this clip is not for the faint of heart.

Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) stars as Reverend Jesse Custer, a simple man who finds God after an otherworldly encounter ends in tragedy and gives him supernatural powers that can do both good and evil. 

Preacher premieres on AMC on Sunday, May 22.
