Guillermo del Toro's THE STRAIN - Body Bags Spot and Poster

FX continues their fun and creepy marketing campaign for Guillermo del Toro's highly anticipated vampire horror series, The Strain. You'll find a new poster above, and below is a promo spot called Body Bags. Not everyone in the bags seem to be "dead" though. I've enjoyed these little teasers that they've released for this.

The new show is based on the book series created by Del Toro who worked on writing it with author Chuck Hogan. It's a bioterror thriller about an outbreak in the U.S. of a virus that either kills those who are exposed to it or turns them into vampires. When the filmmaker came up with the idea for the story, he wanted to bring scary ass vampires back into the scene. None of this sparkly shit. 

The tale is a high concept thriller that tells the story of “Dr. Ephraim Goodweather” (Corey Stoll), 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 series is set to debut this summer, and I'm excited to see it!
