Are you afraid of the dark? No, I'm not referring to the excellent Nickelodeon series that helped build my love of horror as a young man. Instead, I'm talking about Fox's new serial killer drama The Following.
The series, which stars Kevin Bacon (!) and James Purefoy (!), has released a new trailer. Check it out:
I mean, that looks pretty promising, don't you think?
In the series, serial killer Joe Carroll (Purefoy) does everything he can to disrupt and destroy the life of former FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Bacon). This isn't your normal good versus evil story though; the two men share a dark history. Is there any other kind on TV?
The trailer shows a bit of the dark world that was created by Kevin Williamson, the creator of horror films Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer and The Faculty, as well as TV shows Dawson's Creek and The Vampire Diaries. What did you think of the tattooed woman? This looks pretty creepy.
I generally don’t care for Fox programs – I don’t like the way they are filmed. There are exceptions, obviously, but this definitely seems like something up my alley. What about you? And how did they land Bacon?
