Bloody Good Fun
If, like us, you've grown more than weary of the romantic vampires swarming pop culture, and long for something with a bit more, erm, bite, we have some good news. Monster master Guillermo del Toro
is bringing his book trilogy The Strain
to the small screen, thanks to FX and Lost
producer Carlton Cuse
. We are pretty excited to see some respectable splatter returned to the now-sparkly genre. Del Toro, an avid fan of all things that go bump in the night (and some of the things that bump back), had explained his interest in vampires at length in an article for the NYTime in 2009.
