If the newest trailer for Fox’s upcoming thriller The Following is any indication, you might not want to watch this show in the dark by yourself.
The series — from Vampire Diaries EP Kevin Williamson — centers on a cat-and-mouse game between serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) and retired FBI profiler Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon). Through the wonders — or evils, depending on how you look at it — of technology, Carroll creates a cult of murderers, one of whom is glimpsed doing something pretty horrific in the following video. And that’s just a small taste of the pilot episode’s scares and thrills.
The Following debuts on Monday, Jan. 21 at 9/8c.
