​The Strain Gets Back To Vampire-Fightin' Basics

After weeks of dawdling and last week's incredibly bizarre shocker, The Strain decides to return to well-trod territory for "Creatures of the Night."

The entire cast finally wising up to the vampire menace? Actual vampire hunting? The Strain was moving a little too fast for somebody, so in "Occultation," Guillermo del Toro applies the breaks. But even he couldn't stop the vampire apocalypse from finally beginning in earnest by the end of the episode. » 8/18/14 2:20pm 8/18/14 2:20pm

The Cast Promises The Strain Is Only Going To Get Crazier And Grosser

At first glance, The Strain almost looks as though it could be a standard disease-outbreak drama about the CDC trying to understand a pandemic. Until it hits you that this is a Guillermo del Toro show about vampires. The cast told us about the moment it hit them what kind of show they're on, and what's next. » 7/31/14 10:28am 7/31/14 10:28am

So why do I have to watch all these terrible characters not getting eaten by vampires? » 7/21/14 2:45pm 7/21/14 2:45pm

We Toured The Gruesome Set Of Guillermo Del Toro's The Strain

We've seen Guillermo del Toro's disgusting vampire monsters in the pasty flesh on the set of his mystery series The Strain. And they were way weirder than we ever imagined, but also gorgeous. This is a unapologetic gross-out monster series with vampires that crap themselves when they eat, but somehow it still… » 7/11/14 8:56am 7/11/14 8:56am

The Strain Comics Are So Close to the Show That It's Eerie

If you read the comic book version of Guillermo del Toro's The Strain after you watched the TV series, which premieres this Sunday night, they look so similar you'd be forgiven for thinking the comics merely adapted the show. Except the comics came out in 2011, more than a year before the TV series was finally approved » 7/09/14 1:35pm 7/09/14 1:35pm
