The vampires have taken over in this promo for The Strain season 3

I haven't caught up on  The Strain since - oh geez - the first episode of season 1. But now I deeply regret letting that time slip by because this promo for season 3 looks downright sensational.

It's the Booze Talkin', Guillermo del Toro back to horror? We're in!

In the 1980 classic ghost story THE CHANGELING, there is a sequence involving an old wheelchair that is pretty damn creepy.  One of the many moment that linger in my memory.
