The Strain – “Night Zero” Review

thestrain

If any supernatural creature has gotten a bad wrap lately, its the vampire. They sparkle, fall in love, and generally look like they fell off an Abercrombie and Fitch poster. So when I heard that FX was going to be putting out Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s THE STRAIN, i got really excited. 

The book was a fresh take on the age old monster and a much needed one at that. FX made sure that they did their best to allow the show to do the same. And did it ever. 

The first episode, entitled NIGHT ZERO, shows us how everything starts without giving us a huge back story that could bore folks. You are kind of thrown right in the middle of everything as its going down and I really enjoy when a story does that. 

All of the acting really is amazing in this episode but the stand out is by far David Bradley. Yes kids, Argus Filch is a bad ass! He plays pawn shop owner Abraham Setrakian who has a history with the monsters and provides the little bit of backstory that we need to appreciate the gravity of the situation. 

The episode was written by Chuck Hogan and Guillermo del Toro and directed by Guillermo del Toro and it totally shows! It has a real big budget cinematic feel to it from the start. The character development is strong and the overall atmosphere was dark and brooding in all the best ways.

So if you are looking for a horror show that doesn’t double as a soap opera, THE STRAIN is an unrelenting thrill ride that will not disappoint.

INDOOR AIR

I haven’t made a film since Feb. of 2013. I’m not exactly sure why but I think the break really did something for me. Now, I give you INDOOR AIR. It’s already tough losing someone, but imagine if you had to put them down yourself…
