Fox Offers Up A Creepy New Teaser For ‘The Following’ [Video]

The Following

Fox’s midseason thriller The Following just keeps getting creepier. The latest teaser opens with a factoid that will keep you up tonight: there are an estimated 300 serial killers in the United States. As if that weren’t frightening enough we are informed “this January that number is rising.”

Who’s responsible for this sudden uptick in the serial killer population? That would be Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), the charismatic cult leader/serial killer whose escape will bring former FBI Agent Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) back to the job. The Following comes from Kevin Williamson, whose horror credentials include The Vampire Diaries and the Scream film franchise. You can watch the full teaser in all of its unnerving glory below.

The Following premieres January 2013 on Fox.
