FX has released an extended trailer for Guillermo del Toro's The Strain, and this vampire series looks insanely creepy. I can't wait to watch this! Here's a little more detail on the type of vampires we are dealing with in this series thanks to the show's Wikipedia page:
Like rodents, a vampire is unable to vomit, its suction-based digestive process functioning only one way. All bodily waste is excreted from a single rectal orifice in the form of a pungent ammonia-based spray; a vampire will excrete for the entire duration of a feeding, purging old food as it consumes new blood.
That's disgustingly awesome. Here's the synopsis for the show:
The Strain is a high concept thriller from Academy Award® nominated Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, author Chuck Hogan and writer/producer Carlton Cuse, which is based on the best-selling vampire novel trilogy of the same title written by del Toro and Hogan. It tells the story of “Dr. Ephraim Goodweather,” the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.
The Strain is set to premiere on FX on July 13th, 2014. Thanks to io9 for the heads up on the trailer!
