'The Strain' gets eye-popping poster
Here’s a poster for FX’s hot upcoming “real vamps” drama that’s pretty much guaranteed to catch your eye. The Strain poster has a bright, almost animated comic-book-style quality to it … yet is also totally gross, with a worm squirming out of a young woman’s eyeball that reflects an eclipse. The rubber-gloved hand effectively suggests the medical outbreak aspect to the show. It’s what you might expect from a visionary like Guillermo Del Toro, who co-wrote and directed the pilot.
Here’s the poster and, below that, the latest teaser trailer. The 13-episode first season launches in July.
