Coming this summer to FX, from the minds of Guillermo Del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth”) and Carlton Cuse (“Lost”), is “The Strain,” the latest horror drama to hit the small screen.

“The Strain” tells teh story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll, “House of Cards”), who heads up the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in Manhattan. When a viral outbreak starts to show the tell-tale signs of vampirism, Dr. Goodweather and his team must wage war against the monsters.

The first official trailer is above and it looks darn good (and darn scary). “The Strain” premieres Sunday, July 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
