In a world where romantic and suave vampires are the norm, it is quite refreshing (from a horror blogger's point of view anyway) to come across a book that features terrifying and ruthless undead. Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan promise to deliver that with their novel The Strain.
A mix between CSI and Dracula, The Strain is shaping up to be a great read. It has mystery, a compelling protagonist, and a slew of horrible blood thirsty monsters marauding New York City. Expect a review soon, and until then, watch these great videos, including two book trailers!
A word of caution: Some of the movies have a bit of strong language.
