Watch the Creepy New Trailer For Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain
Thank god these ones don’t sparkle…
This Summer Guillermo del Toro and FX are looking to put the scary back into the Vampire genre with their new show, The Strain, and you bet your sweet fangs we got your first terrifying look right here. After seemingly endless teasers, FX has finally released a trailer that features actual show footage and man does it look creepy as hell. Based on the series of books by del Torro and author Chuck Hogan ( the two also wrote the pilot which Guillermo directed ), The Strain tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), head of the CDC in New York City, who must fight to save humanity when he discovers that a mysterious viral outbreak may be from an ancient and evil strain of vampirism.
The Strain is set to debut on Sundays this July on FX. Hopefully it can follow in the footsteps of other great genre shows that have made their mark on Sunday like Game of Thrones and the Walking Dead, because honestly, Vampires deserve better than glitter tans and shirtless werewolves. Take a look at the trailer and let us know if you think FX has the recipe for pure blood sucking horror, or is this just gonna be nothing but another dead Vampire?
