All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Strain, Season 1 (2014)

Starring: David Bradley, Corey Stoll, Kevin Durand, Mia Maestro, Jonathan Hyde, Natalie Brown, Miguel Gomez, Sean Astin

A plane mysterious lands in New York with all the passengers dead. The Center of Disease Control is called in to investigate. The find a viral strain which turns the dead into a form of vampires, which is quickly taking over the city.With the help of an old antiques dealer, who has battled this plague before, an exterminator, and others they wage battle on the ancient force responsible.

My Take:
I have only read the first book in the Guilermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan trilogy and was fascinated by it. The series I am sort of split on. Yes, it has moments but is also big chunks of episodes lacked... something. Perhaps I just expected or wanted more.

Favorite Episode:
"Night Zero" - The series debuts packs a lot of dread and mystery into it, while giving the viewer a taste of things to come. A solid way to start off the tale.

Rating: In the middle
