Monster films seem to be having a nice little comeback. We seem to be venturing away from the “Grindhouse” homage films, the torture porn films and the other tropes the genre got stuck in. A film that is on my radar is Dark Was The Night, which was adapted from a screenplay that was on The Blacklist a few years back. We just got word that we shouldn’t have to wait too long to see this flick starring Kevin Durand (The Strain) and Lukas Haas (Lady in White, Inception, Brick). Read below for the official word. We’ve also included a trailer that was posted last year for the film.

FX has announced that season two of The Strain will kick off this summer. There will be 13 episodes.

FX’s The Strain was one of the summer’s guiltiest pleasures, an immeasurably silly but still compelling thriller about a group of Cdc scientists attempting to stem the flow of a centuries-old vampire epidemic purposely brought to New York by an ancient evil. And though we’ll have to wait until the summer to see where it goes in season 2, FX is ensuring that we keep The Strain in mind by unveiling a new teaser for the series.
It seems early for the network to be promoting The Strain again, but it did market the first season for many months before its summer premiere as well. There’s not much context to the teaser, though if the show can follow through on the promise of depicting a full-on, bloodsuckers-versus-humans battle in the streets of New York, that will already be a step up on season 1, which only mounted a few truly impressive action sequences. »

FX has released the first trailer for the highly-anticipated Season 2 of The Strain, which teases the epic battle being fought between good and evil in New York City. The trailer begins with a seemingly idyllic shot of the Statue of Liberty, but from an overhead angle we can see this iconic landmark is just one of many battlegrounds between humanity and the evil that has been unleashed on the Big Apple. Unfortunately, we don't see any main cast members in this trailer, but it gives fans a sense of the epic scope that we'll see in Season 2.
FX officially renewed this hit series for Season 2 back in August, with a premiere set for sometime this summer, although an exact date has not been announced yet. In Season 2 of The Strain, the war will continue between humans and vampires, as the Cdc's Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) and Nora Martinez (Mía »
