A new trailer has been released for the upcoming television series The Strain.
Based on the series of novels by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan, it is a dark horror story about a race of vampires spreading through New York. CDC doctor Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) is one of the first on the scene of a very strange incident on a plane and becomes wrapped up in the battle to save the city from the vampires.
It’s safe to say we’re quite excited about this one, the first book, which the series is based on, is a very good read and it has the same vein of interesting and messed up biological imagery and science behind the vampires that Del Toro brought to the Blade series in Blade 2. Horror television seems to be in quite a place at the moment with Hannibal, The Walking Dead and American Horror Story, so hopefully The Strain will be another series to look forward to week after week.
The trailer has some great shots and a good line of creepiness in it so it looks like it’s on the right track.
The Strain premieres on FX on July 13th.
