Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan‘s novel comes to life on FX as new horror TV series The Strain. I am so stoked to see what this horror series turns into. The poster shows a worm-like virus entering the eye so it is definitely not for the squirmish but so Guillermo del Toro. The Strain stars Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Roger Cross, Leslie Hope and Regina King.
The Strain is a high-concept thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (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.
