Guillermo del Toro Addresses Worm in the Eye Billboards for FX’s ‘The Strain’

11 July 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Guillermo del Toro had some fun addressing “The Strain’s” advertising campaign at the Thursday DGA premiere and those who want the frightening billboards around the country taken down.

“I got asked a lot about this ad, and they said, ‘Do you find it morally disturbing?’ And I said, ‘Look, honestly, I find every other form of advertising more morally disturbing. Beer commercials, aftershave. This is just a fucking worm in the eye!’”

FX Networks CEO John Landgraf agreed. “We had to terrify some children in order to launch this show, but I think it was worth it. Just saying,” he added. “‘The Strain’ is a modern take on the vampire myth, one in which vampires are brutal parasites aiming to take over the world. Think of them as the new one percent.”

“I’ve been obsessed with vampires since I was a child. I was very, very lonely,” del Toro joked. »

Guillermo del Toro Touts The Strain's Great Scares: 'You Need to Show the Audience You're Not Kidding'

11 July 2014 9:23 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

FX’s outdoor campaign for The Strain recently came under fire (and got toned down, some) for its eye-popping image of a parasitic something-or-another shimmying into someone’s peeper.

If only that were the most frightful of the horror drama’s on-screen visuals.

Review: Guillermo del Toro's FX vampire thriller 'The Strain'

11 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Guillermo del Toro is the kind of filmmaker who leaves me wanting more — just not always in the best way. Whether he's adapting someone else's work with the "Hellboy" films, or inventing his own stories with something like "Pan's Labyrinth," del Toro leaves no hallucinatory stone unturned, no burst of inspiration unexplored. I've often walked out of his movies impressed by the depth and breadth of the creativity on display, yet frustrated at how little time there was to thoroughly explore it all. I wouldn't want to take away the big budgets and fancy effects work that he can apply to something like "Pacific Rim," but I've been itching for a while to see what del Toro might do with an ongoing television series, where he could drill down deep and expand each concept to its fullest, rather than rushing to fit them all into two hours. "The Strain," the »

Australian Promo for Guillermo del Toro's The Strain

10 July 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

TV Review: ‘The Strain’

9 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

FX is so steeped in brooding drama, the comicbook-y roots of “The Strain” feel mildly off brand, but also like a breath of fresh air. While there’s not much new to be done with the vampire genre, director Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s adaptation of their book/graphic novel plays like perfect summer popcorn fare, filtering the threat of marauding bloodsuckers through fears of global pandemic. At times the portentous dialogue can sound hokey, but for the most part, the slick pilot and three subsequent episodes set the tone for a series with enough of a hook to get under one’s skin.

Carlton Cuse (“Lost”) joins del Toro (who directed the premiere, and co-wrote it with Hogan) as an exec producer, which is appropriate, since this all begins with a plane too. In this case, it’s a flight from Berlin, which, in “Twilight Zone”-like fashion, »

Snapshots from FX’s ’The Strain' set - Headless corpses, Chili-eating vampires and more

8 July 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toronto, On. The set is neat and tidy, a two-level suburban home ready for guests.  On the ground floor, there's an orderly living room and an adjacent kitchen. The rugs are flat and properly placed, the chairs and tables laid out to encourage openness, the couch looks comfortable. The pictures on the walls and in leaning frames are spic-and-span. You could practically eat off the floors, were it not for the unfortunately mutilated body. The corpse looks almost restful. And when I say "almost restful," I mean "as restful as a decapitated corpse could possibly look." It's just there. On its back. Without a head. There are no signs of struggle. And for good reason. The corpse has nothing to do with the scene that will next be shot in this house on the Toronto set of FX's "The Strain." Or at least that's what the group of reporters wandering »

5 Reasons You've Absolutely Got to Watch FX's The Strain

7 July 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

There’s a hint of trepidation any time a new series lands on the small screen. Censorship limitations, fiscal restrictions and an abundance of writers and directors can easily serve as points of distraction for promising concepts.

Sometimes there are just too many chiefs and not enough Indians, and when you’ve got too many chiefs attempting to hold rule over a tribe with the barest of necessities, things can head south in an instant. That’s the law of the land.

Ultimately, the legitimately scintillating concepts tend to succeed, assuming the funds are there to capitalize on and the featuring network is lenient enough to truly push the envelope, if the idea in question calls for the courageous, that is.

FX’s new monster, “The Strain” (which premieres on July 13th), calls for the courageous, unquestionably. A brilliant interpretation of one of history’s most-beloved classics (more on that, »

Updated: Billboards for The Strain Are Freaking People Out - Including a Paranormal Activity Actor!

28 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

What a bunch of babies! Apparently billboards for FX's upcoming "The Strain" featuring some kind of a worm either coming out of, or going into, an eyeball are too much for residents of Hollywood to handle, and they've taken to Twitter to bitch about it.

Okay, so maybe you don't necessarily want to see a close-up of a worm-penetrated eyeball while you're trying to choke down your Egg McMuffin in the morning, but is it really that big of a deal? Well, people need something to tweet about. It can't all be pictures of food and cute cat videos.

And we've heard from some celebs on the Twittersphere regarding "The Strain" billboards. Paranormal Activity 2 star Molly Ephraim herself has spoken out. Ephraim tweeted, "Billboard for ‘The Strain’ or whatever that godforsaken thing is w/ the thing in the eyeball on my street; can I call the Mayor to complain? »

'The Strain' Q&A: Mia Maestro Takes On New Vampires

Vampires are about to get a lot less suave and sparkly and a lot more horrific and creepy when "The Strain," from Executive Producers Guillermo del Toro and Carlton Cuse, premieres July 13 on FX.

Forget everything you know about vampires. "The Strain's" version, where vampires are created through a fast moving, worm-like virus, is something very new to television, said actress Mia Maestro, who plays one of the dedicated professionals trying to stop the spread.

"Somehow Guillermo is rewriting the whole genre," Mia told Access Hollywood. "Somehow he's taking the vampire genre from the 18th Century and ...

The Strain Featurette: Guillermo del Toro Explains the Show’s “Gothic Approach to Science”

25 June 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

This summer hasn’t really given us many solid new series debuts, but July is looking promising.  In addition to Damon Lindelof’s HBO show The Leftovers, we have the debut of Guillermo del Toro’s vampire drama The Strain on FX.  Based on the book trilogy by del Toro and Chuck Hogan, the story revolves around a team of scientists who wage war against an ancient strain of virus that confers vampirism, along with those it infects.  Del Toro had a heavy hand in putting the show together, co-writing and directing the pilot and overseeing the writing of the rest of the season before handing off showrunner reins to Lost alum Carlton Cuse.  In this new featurette, the filmmaker explains his “gothic approach to science” as the cast discusses the show’s real-world approach to the idea of vampirism.  Very promising stuff. Hit the jump to watch the new The Strain featurette. »
