Trailer Released for New FX Series 'The Strain'
Watch the trailer above for a sneak peak at FX's upcoming 'The Strain,' an interesting mix of science fiction and fantasy tropes. This "high concept thriller" series written by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan will follow a New York City doctor as he treats patients who are sick with a strange epidemic that resembles vampirism. Sounds refreshing given the turn that vampire fiction has taken in the past 10 years. And it is much more reminiscent of '28 Days Later' than 'Twilight,' as the trailer positions it as a medical/apocalyptic thriller in which the fate of the human race hangs in the balance.
