‘The Strain’ Revamps a Classic

The creative and innovative genius of the horror and fantasy genre, Guillermo del Toro, has found another hit in his latest TV series for FX, called The Strain. The book-to-screen adaptation of a present-day New York City overrun by a vampiric virus is a refreshing new spin on the classic mythos of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Borrowing similar eerie details, del Toro’s and Chuck Hogan’s best-selling novel features familiar horror elements, plot and characters from the classic novel, revamped for a new generation without the romanticism.
