Guillermo del Toro
From GUILLERMO DEL TORO, CARLTON CUSE and CHUCK HOGAN comes a chillingly original series. When a freak virus tracing back to ancient vampirism strikes New York, it gives rise to bloodthirsty human hybrids. Hoping to destroy the creatures and the evil “Master” behind the outbreak, the CDC’s Dr. “Eph” Goodweather (Corey Stoll) develops a deadly bio weapon. Teaming with a mysterious Holocaust survivor (David Bradley), and searching clues found in an ancient book, Eph races against time – amidst great personal loss – in an effort to save humanity, in this thrilling, post-apocalyptic story. All four blood-curdling seasons are here, packed with special features and in-depth behind-the-scenes access.
We like it because:
Based on the novels by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, The Strain draws on fears modern and arcane alike with the horror auteur’s frightening new take on the bloody vampire mythos.
House of Cards alumni Corey Stoll brings a complex gravitas to his standout lead role as a researcher struggling to prevent the collapse of both New York under a vampire plague, and his marriage. Award-nominated performances from David Bradley, Richard Sammel and more help round out a strong supporting cast as well.
With a stylistic flair reminiscent of The Shape of Water and the fanboy spirit that birthed Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro’s fingerprints are all over The Strain, creating a gruesome mystery that will delight fellow genre fans, but be a nightmare for anyone with a weak stomach!
