Last week a short trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's The Strain was released, and now an extended trailer has also landed online for FX's upcoming vampire series. It's pretty much the same as the previous trailer, but longer, and features some new footage. Based on Del Toro and Chuck Hogan's book series, The Strain looks like it's going to be a very creepy ride, and I'm excited to learn more about the nontraditional vampires appearing in the series.

"He's here."

Synopsis:

A plane lands at John F. Kennedy International Airport with the lights off and doors sealed. Epidemiologist Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and his team are sent to investigate. On board they find two hundred corpses and four survivors. The situation deteriorates when the bodies begin disappearing from morgues. Goodweather and a small group of helpers find themselves battling to protect not only their own loved ones, but the entire city, from an ancient threat to humanity.

The Strain starring Corey Stoll, Sean Astin, David Bradley, Mia Maestro, Kevin Durand, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Robert Maillet, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland and Miguel Gomez will premiere on FX on July 13, 2014.

Very excited for this.

I've read the trilogy. The "horror" portion of this series should be fantastic as the book elements were fantastic (and let's face it, Del Toro is a master at putting it on the screen). Without giving away any spoilers, the books seemed to be clunky and lacking in their depiction of the global effects of 'the strain'. I'm still a fan of the books and would recommend them to others as the main story and horror elements are very well done and I am super stoked for this series. This could be one

This could be one of those rare cases (with Del Toro at the helm) where the quality of the miniseries exceeds it's printed source material.

I'm about halfway through the first book right now and loving it. Can't wait to see it translated to screen. I love how Del Toro envisioned the story as a TV show, but when no one was interested in picking it up, he was encouraged to turn it into a book series instead. And now FX is turning the books into a TV show. Brilliant.
