First teaser for Guillermo del Toro's The Strain: watch now

First look at new horror series

The first teaser trailer has emerged online for The Strain, Guillermo del Toro's forthcoming horror series, which premiered recently during the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead.

Shot in a found-footage style, the stomach-churning teaser shows hordes of rodents scuttling into a storm drain and through a municipal corridor. And that's about it.

The spot is deliberately mysterious in order to spark conversation as to just what it's all about, no surprise given Lost-alumnus Carlton Cuse's involvement as showrunner.

Take a look at the new teaser, below…

Based on the novel co-written by del Toro and Chuck Hogan, The Strain will chart the introduction of a vampiric virus into New York, and will follow a group of survivors attempting to find a cure before it's too late.

Del Toro is acting as executive producer, while Sean Astin, David Bradley and Kevin Durand are among the cast. A UK air date has yet to be confirmed.
