New viral teaser for The Strain

December 3rd, 2013 by bash Comments


A new viral video for the forthcoming FX series The Strain has been teased during the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead.

The promo features “found footage” of rats gathering in public places.

The Strain is based on the novel by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, with the pilot episode being directed by the former.

The tale 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.

Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Robert Maillet, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland, and Miguel Gomez also star in the series which airs next July.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
