Twin Peaks” fans obsess over every bit of new information and footage available from the upcoming series revival. Now they have a new promo, “Body,” to inspire slo-mo rewatching to find new clues.

The 30-second clip consists primarily of old footage of Laura Palmer’s body wrapped in plastic, followed by the classic photo of her that has become the show’s calling card. It’s simple, but has enough to launch conspiracy theories among the David Lynch faithful.

Based on YouTube and Reddit posts of the trailer, the dominating theories are:

1) If you watch it at 1/4 speed, you can see Laura’s eyes open and close ever so briefly in the body bag. (Editor’s note: If this is true, it’s imperceptible.)

2) The iconic photo has been taken from its frame and hastily taped to a piece of cardboard. We don’t know who has the photo, or where it is, but it makes the tagline — “It Is Happening Again” — even creepier.

Whether the above is really true or not, fans will doubtlessly dissect every frame of the “Twin Peaks” revival, which is set to debut on Showtime on Sunday, May 21.
