'Locke & Key' trailer leak: The American horror story FOX will never tell


"Locke & Key," the high-concept horror pilot based on Joe Hill's supernatural comic book series, will never make it to air. And though FOX chose to pass on the series, interest hasn't seemed to die down.

The complete pilot, produced and written by Josh Friedman, screened at San Diego Comic-Con to much enthusiasm, bootlegs have since found their way online and now there's a full length trailer.

Friedman tweeted a link (via io9) to the slick, spooky two-minute spot, explaining how it came to be: "This leaked L/K trailer was made by Fox for advertisers months ago," he writes. "Obviously before they decided not to pick us up."

Watch the trailer, and tell us your interest isn't piqued just a bit.
