"The Strain" is a high concept thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.

The Strain premieres July 2014 on FX.

Somebody has had too much black goo.
TheAbaryMan369 - 4/25/2014, 4:55 PM
That is brutally disgusting. I WANT MORE (even though it'll be a generic horror flick)
JordanKing - 4/25/2014, 4:56 PM

My left eye hurts.
RextheKing - 4/25/2014, 5:07 PM
I think watching Saw the final chapter(terrible film) last night, is the only reason why I don't find this poster disturbing.
SuperCat - 4/25/2014, 5:25 PM
Great poster. I'll be watching this. FX has some decent shows.

CaptainAmerica31 - 4/25/2014, 5:54 PM
@supercat I think FX has some of the new shows out there. Have you seen Fargo?
CaptainAmerica31 - 4/25/2014, 5:54 PM
Greatest shows*
DrVenkman - 4/25/2014, 5:59 PM


This looks great... huh guys?
ABLEE337 - 4/25/2014, 5:59 PM
Looks like the thing from Prometheus.
Humperdink - 4/25/2014, 6:01 PM
YIKES.

I love the comic and can't wait for the series but that's some real high school-level photoshop skills happening there. I've seen better in these comment sections.

I wonder who approved that?
InfiniteMonkey - 4/25/2014, 6:03 PM
Can't bloody wait for this.

The books were cool.
Ramiel - 4/25/2014, 6:17 PM
One vampire show ends, another begins. I hope this is good. Del Toro disappointed me with Pacific Rim after impressing me with Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy, and Blade 2.
SuperCat - 4/25/2014, 6:34 PM
@ CaptainAmerica

Hell yes! Love that show!

@Supercat

Melkaticox - 4/25/2014, 8:04 PM
Wait...The Strain? FX? Guillermo del Toro???
Is this an actual movie or a TV show?

...And what happened to Monster, Guillermo :(
REPOMAN - 4/25/2014, 9:10 PM


Prometheus all ready did the 'worm in the eye' thing.


MightyZeus - 4/25/2014, 9:31 PM
That person sadly has worms.

It's okay. Seen scarier things wake up next to me after a big night out.

"The Strain" aka "What you feel, in the morning, after a night of liquor and Taco Bell"
Fun1gUy - 4/26/2014, 7:19 AM
