FX continues their marketing campaign for Guillermo del Toro’s highly anticipated vampire horror series, The Strain.
Today we have a poster and TV Spot called Body Bags from the show.
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 Strain will premiere on FX in July 2014.
