​The Strain's Vampire Apocalypse Hasn't Been Postponed, It's Just Slow

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

​All 13 Vampire Clans From Vampire: The Masquerade RPG, Ranked

Vampires fall into more categories than sparkly an non=sparkly. As the iconic Vampire: The Masquerade RPG taught us, there are 13 vastly different clans of vampires for players to choose from, some good, some weird, and some so terrible they might as well sparkle.

​Someone Finally Starts Hunting Some Goddamn Vampires On The Strain

Somewhere in the shadows, there lies a dark power. An elusive being of darkness and terror that lays hiding, biding its time, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. It is, of course, the main plot of Guillermo del Toro's The Strain. And in "It's Not For Everyone," it finally came out to play... a little. » 8/04/14 12:40pm 8/04/14 12:40pm

I thought this was going to be a show about a vampire plague as seen through science. 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

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

True Blood: This Is The End, Let's Kill All Our Friends, The End

Welp, this is it: the very first episode of the very last season of True Blood. And for the beginning of the end of the vampire hump-hump show, I was a little nonplussed. I mean, there was still excellent vampire sex and death, but I gotta say, I expected a wee bit more in the What-the-Fuckery department. But let me… » 6/23/14 2:04pm 6/23/14 2:04pm
