New Footage for THE STRAIN Plus Character Pics and More

The Strain logo with date wide

It was terrific to finally get some actual footage of Guillermo del Toro‘s and Carlton Cuse‘s vampire infection series The Strain last week, even though they were very short snippets. Now we have more equally short snippets but WOW these are eye-popping. Don’t blink at the end or you’ll miss the horror of how the infection is spread…

We also have three more screenshots, followed by some gorgeous gallery shots of the cast. This is looking so good.
