The FX television network recently announced a July 13 premiere date for the vampire apocalypse show based on Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s books, titled the The Strain. Guillermo Del Toro directed the pilot, while Chuck Hogan wrote the script. If you haven’t read the books, there’s never been a better time to start. We’re talking about predatory vampires that live to spread the infection with six foot long stingers. The apocalypse is coming, folks!
In case you couldn’t tell, I’m pretty excited. I hope this will be the show horror lovers have been waiting for. Something gritty, chilling, and fun. Did I mention Sean Astin has a role in the first season? If you want more details about the cast, check out IMDB. Just click on this link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2654620/?ref_=ttfc_fc_tt
