As a huge fan of ‘The Strain’ book trilogy written by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan, I couldn’t possibly be more thrilled to see the series finally being brought to life and what better format and place for that as a series on FX with a specific outline of an (estimated) five season plan to perfectly adapt this marvelous and brutal vampire tale flawlessly. For those who may have initially questioned how this may work, I think most will have had their worries eradicated by the fact that Del Tori will helm the show , and now with this short TV spot that looks like it’s going to deliver exactly what fans of the series like me have been hoping for all along. While the trailer (or promo) shows far more than any of the previous promo spots, it does only clock in at about thirty seconds in length. Fortunately those thirty seconds deliver some pretty wild imagery and showcase a number of moments from the book that really brought a smile to my face. I’m pretty sure this just became my most anticipated show of the summer and I will definitely be there on Sunday, July 13 as I hope you all will be too. It’s about time we saw a vampire series that represents vampires in the gritty and nasty sense for a change and I think horror fans will really appreciate this one.
