Fear the witches in this latest promo for WGN America's Salem 'Dead Devils'

I may be nitpicking here, but as much as I enjoyed "American Horror Story: Coven" it just didn't give me as many shocks and scares as I wanted or expected, especially considering it was centered around witches, which have terrified me ever since I was a kid. A witch-themed tale done right can really unnerve a viewer. That's why I have high hopes for WGN America's upcoming "Salem". Everything we've seen from "Salem" so far looks like it will deliver exactly the kind of wickedness I expect from a witch-themed tale, with no yellow brick road in sight!

Today we have yet another promising promo for "Salem", this one titled 'Dead Devils', and once again it provides some creepy imagery that hints that it may be able to cast one hell of an evil spell over viewers this April. Check it out below.

“Salem” explores what really fueled the town's infamous witch trials and dares to uncover the dark, supernatural truth behind them.

In “Salem” witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem. The show, which centers on an epic romance wrapped around this explosive revelation, delivers a bold new vision of Salem – and an even bolder new vision of witches.

“Salem” stars Janet Montgomery as the ruthless but vulnerable Mary Sibley, Salem’s most powerful enchantress – and Alden’s onetime love interest; Shane West as handsome, hardened war veteran John Alden; Seth Gabel as local aristocrat Cotton Mather who fans the flames of Salem’s witch hunt; Ashley Madekwe as Mary’s mysterious, carnal accomplice; Xander Berkeley as chief politician Magistrate Hale; Tamzin Merchant as the forthright Anne Hale, an artist with a perilous attraction to Alden; and Elise Eberle as the mysteriously afflicted Mercy Lewis.

I love this quote from the promo:

"The Devil is never going to let a Promised Land be built here without a battle.”

"Salem" premieres April 20 on WGN America.
