Kevin Williamson’s new pilot, The Following, has already been deemed one of the scariest in years, staring Kevin Bacon in his first serious TV role. Bacon plays an FBI agent assigned to take down the leader of an underground serial killer cult, lead by Revenge’sJames Purfoy. Williamson is known for his dark designs in Scream and CW hit, The Vampire Diaries, but The Following is much darker and more sinister than anything we’ve seen. EW has scored this exclusive teaser trailer filled with spoilery goodness. Fox is set to premiere The Following mid-season in January 2013.
