'The Following' Red-Band Trailer: Kevin Bacon's Forthcoming Serial Killer Drama

Move over "Dexter," there's a new serial killer drama in town -- except this time there's no vigilante who's always two steps ahead of the psycho's next move.

Fox has released the red-band trailer for their new Kevin Bacon-led series, "The Following," premiering Jan. 21. The trailer shows former FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Bacon), who seems to have fallen off the wagon, called back into duty to catch prison-escaped serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), who's out to finish a kill he failed to complete years ago.

So will "The Following" have an endemic audience in those who have similarly become seduced by Dexter Morgan? While both dramas certainly share a common thread, from the new red-band trailer, "The Following" seems to be one step ahead in the suspension department. We recommend watching with the lights on.
