Whenever you mention monsters and Guillermo del Toro in the same sentence, it’s a prospect worth getting excited over. Reviews of the initial run of The Strain are somewhat mixed (I still haven’t had the chance to check it out for myself), but from most accounts as the season wound on, it got all kinds of crazy and awesome. And if this new trailer for season 2 of the FX vampire series is any indication, things are going to stay insane for the foreseeable future.
Based on a trilogy of novels by del Toro and co-writer Chuck Hogan, the basic premise of The Strain is that some kind of ancient biological evil, a nasty old virus, lands in New York City and turns the population into bloodthirsty vampires. A Centers for Disease Control Canary Team, led by Doctor Eprhaim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), are the only ones who can stop it, and team up with a collection of every day citizens to do just that.
