FX has released the first full promo spot for Guillermo del Toro's awesome looking new vampire series! The Strain is an adaptation of the book Del Toro developed and wrote with Chuck Hogan, and this trailer gives us our first real look at what this series has in store for us. It even provides a quick glimpse of one of the vampire creatures, and it looks pretty damn cool.
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.
