There's a lot of reasons to be excited for FX's new viral vampire series The Strain, and this parasitic first look at Guillermo del Toro's new project, which is coming to our screens in June, is one of them. Sufferers of ophthalmophobia should look away now. You're away to be stared at by a right creepy peeper.
The Strain tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. One not so fine day, 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.
