FOX's The Following: Clips from New York Comic-Con

The anticipation is almost over! If you watch FOX, by now you should have seen numerous trailers on FOX's new serial killer thriller by creator/executive producer Kevin Williamson, The Following, premiering Monday night at 9pm ET/PT.

At New York Comic-Con 2012 back in October, I attended The Following panel and pilot episode screening. The panel included executive producer Marcos Siega and series stars Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Annie Parisse, Natalie Zea and Shawn Ashmore.

The pilot episode had me on the edge of my seat, as former FBI agent Ryan Hardy (Bacon) is drawn back into a string of gruesome murders masterminded by serial killer Joe Carroll (Purefoy), who put an end to  Hardy's career years before. Carroll escaped from prison a month before he was supposed to be executed, and now has cult followers helping him carry out his plans and gather his victims. It is amazingly chilling how Purefoy brings Carroll's disturbing and brilliant, yet charming character to life. The Following is dark, suspenseful and creepy - you can't help but get drawn into all the psychological drama.

Check out the clips from the panel I attended:
