the most gruesome poster I've seen. I can't look at the eyeball for longer than a moment because I can't let the concept sink in. I don't want to know what that thing is through her eye.
I don't want
to know that it's a worm.
I'm assuming it symbolises the strain of terror that humanity's going to suffer in ... *cue appropriate voice* ... The Strain. It's a new 13-part horror-drama that's starting in America on Sunday (13 June) which will, no doubt, make it's way here too.
It's made by filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, author Chuck Hogan and writer/producer Carlton Cuse - which impresses me bigtime because Cartlon's the showrunner on Bates Hotel. I'm mad for it and just recently decided that it's in my Top 5 series of all time.
With him on the scene things look promising for The Strain. Also, Guillermo del Tor and Chuck Hogan have high street cred - the series is based on the vampire novel trilogy of the same name that they wrote together.
Here's more from the official description of the show:
The Strain tells the story of "Dr. Ephraim Goodweather," the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.
