This much buzzed about psychological thriller THE FOLLOWING, stars Golden Globe® Award-winner Kevin Bacon (X-Men: First Class) in his broadcast television debut.
The FBI estimates there are currently over 300 active serial killers in the United States. What would happen if these killers had a way of connecting with each other and were able to work together to form alliances across the country? What if one brilliant psychotic serial killer was able to bring them all together and activate a following?
When notorious serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) escapes from death row and embarks on a new killing spree, the FBI calls former agent Ryan Hardy (Bacon) to consult on the case. Hardy is a walking textbook of all-things Carroll and is perhaps Carroll’s only psychological and intellectual match.
Wounded by his previous pursuit of this serial killer, this investigation is Hardy’s redemption and he becomes ever more determined to end Carroll’s game when he realizes that this psychopath intends to finish what he started. The thriller follows Hardy and the FBI as they are challenged with the ever-growing web of murder around them.
