In between directing fantastic films, the supremely talented Guillermo del Toro penned a vampire book trilogy with Chuck Hogan, which is now a major TV series.
He also directed the pilot episode, in which a 747 lands at New York’s JFK airport with all onboard dead on arrival. Or are they? CDC doctor Eph Goodweather (Corey Stoll) soon discovers an ancient evil with a hunger for blood has been unleashed upon the city. Ostensibly The Strain does for vampires what The Walking Dead did for zombies, only this time we get to see the apocalypse as it unfolds. And these vamps are definitely not Twilight hunks! Gruesome and gripping.
