AWSOME!!!!

Between this show and Penny Dreadful im not going to be able to sleep...
RexDartEskimoSpy - 5/28/2014, 5:43 AM
Strigoi will be the new zombies if the show catches on. Might be too creepy, though.
MrSundayMovies - 5/28/2014, 5:44 AM
I'm with Young Thanos. REVERT! Looks great though.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 5/28/2014, 5:46 AM
Too bad John Hurt had to drop out. Reading the books I'd pictured him as Setrakian immediately.

So, how long til Ron Perlman shows up, ya think?
SuperCat - 5/28/2014, 5:51 AM
Saw this last night during "Fargo." I'm in!
GodzillaKart - 5/28/2014, 5:54 AM
Looks good! I'll check it out.
ICEMAN5151 - 5/28/2014, 6:10 AM
PENNY DREADFUL is awesome BTW!
MightyZeus - 5/28/2014, 6:11 AM
Look's alright. I'll give this a watch.
ICEMAN5151 - 5/28/2014, 6:11 AM
@REX - So true on the Ron
MrZurEnArrh - 5/28/2014, 6:20 AM
Nosferatu Approves!
RexDartEskimoSpy - 5/28/2014, 6:26 AM
I think Perlman was too busy to play the Master, and just too old to play Fet, but he'll turn up sooner or later. I wonder who (or what) Doug Jones is playing. Quinlan?
Brainiac13 - 5/28/2014, 6:38 AM
I want a book that sucks my arse! ;)
CaptainAmerica31 - 5/28/2014, 6:40 AM
Idk this doesn't look good
Desrow - 5/28/2014, 6:40 AM
So this gonna be like TWD with vampires?? I'm [frick]ing in.
McGee - 5/28/2014, 6:44 AM
I've seen scarier stuff.

TheRealSupaMan - 5/28/2014, 6:48 AM
Never heard of this Graphic Novel but the show looks decent enough to give it a shot! Summer doesn't have that many great shows on anyways.
pintoman - 5/28/2014, 7:13 AM
lol..."full" "teaser".

SpiderFraud - 5/28/2014, 7:14 AM
Looks really good so far. Waiting for this to drop is gonna suck.
Ramiel - 5/28/2014, 7:21 AM
Looks good.
jonnytheshirt - 5/28/2014, 7:24 AM
Read the novels they're great and perfect for a limited 3 series tv run. Teaser looks good, better than Constantine, Flash or Gotham Lite.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 5/28/2014, 7:25 AM
@SupaMan: That's because The Strain is a real book with no pictures. Adults read them sometimes.

"Here's a portion of a screencap from a sneak peek at the preview of the teaser for the trailer that's a portion of the promo reel from the pilot episode of a TV series. Go nuts, fanboys."
TheRealSupaMan - 5/28/2014, 7:27 AM
Thanks Rex.....You sound like you need to get laid.
campblood - 5/28/2014, 7:40 AM
I can see supa's confusion considering the name of this site is comicbookmovie.com and not writtennoveladaptation.com
RextheKing - 5/28/2014, 8:08 AM
@RexDart... You just had to be named Rex didn't yah? Just kidding, but remember I'm still the King.
BlackIceJoe - 5/28/2014, 8:59 AM
I think this should be good. Getting to see more of a real take on vampires is going to be good. Hopefully it will make people forget about the abominations that Twilight brought onto the world.
kman - 5/28/2014, 9:28 AM
The opening to this book, which you see there on the plane, was amazing. Sucks you right in. But the book takes a drastic dive as it goes along. They should have turned this into a hard r-rated film and taken some artistic liberties to improve on the story instead of making a series or mini-series or whatever this will end up being.
sKeemAn - 5/28/2014, 9:37 AM
Looks pretty good. With Del Toro behind this it should be a really good thriller.
BoomTubeB - 5/28/2014, 10:39 AM
looks good!

please no more glittery pussification of vampires & mystical creatures!

BoomTubeB - 5/28/2014, 10:42 AM
admit it! you know what this pic is! especially members of cbm

BoomTubeB - 5/28/2014, 10:52 AM
remember when they were more like this?

AsianVersionOfET - 5/28/2014, 11:00 AM
Wow, I'm excited.
Bl00dwerK - 5/28/2014, 11:15 AM
I don't know. I might watch it...
BlueKnight - 5/28/2014, 11:20 AM
Looks great
CyberBishop - 5/28/2014, 2:56 PM
Ill give it a watch...
Bartman87 - 5/28/2014, 3:14 PM
Books were good-Del Toro actually started them as a screenplay and fleshed them out with Chuck Hogan. I have the comics but haven't read them yet, if people can get through the first few episodes it should pick up but you know how people need to see the monster right away and aren't much interested in the mystery.
marvel72 - 5/28/2014, 3:16 PM
looks decent enough to give it a chance.
loki668 - 5/29/2014, 1:20 AM
So, who's playing Frankenberry?
RaythBane - 5/31/2014, 12:27 PM
@RexDartEskimoSpy Doug Jones will be playing one of the Ancients.

And Quinlan is being played by a Canadian actor.
