Based on their co-written novel trilogy of the same name, The Strain is the television adaptation of that vampiric horror story. Following a mysterious plane landing at JFK, Dr Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll of House of Cards) is tasked with investigating and examining what turns out to be “an ancient and evil strain of vampirism.”
So what kinds of vampires are we going to see here? The more SciFi horror kind of I Am Legend? The more mythical creatures of old, like distant cousins of the Underworld series? And how are the ideas put forward by del Toro and Hogan going to realised on screen?
Yes, it’s another vampire story, but this one I’m a lot more excited about than Dracula.
