If you were to study popular genre trends in entertainment media, one might think that vampires were in their prime back in 2008 when True Blood and Twilight were making their respective companies gallons of blood soaked money. So, The Strain missed the boat by 6 years, right?
Don’t tell that to the talented creative team led by Guillermo Del Tor (Pacific Rim) and Carlton Cruse (Lost). For them, it’s still 2008 and they are reveling in the horrific world they have created. With a talented group of actors and a B-movie like repertoire of dialogue and action set pieces, The Strain should be on the top of your must see list for the summer.
