FX's violent vampire show The Strain has got a creepy and atmospheric new teaser trailer that suggests vampires will be soon be keeping us awake at night.

The high-concept thriller is based on a trilogy of novels by Chuck Hogan and legendary director and promises to offer a new and brutal look at vampire lore.

Check out the teaser after the jump:


Having read the novel source material, I honestly think The Strain can do for vampires what The Walking Dead has done for reanimated corpses.

The material is dark and apocalyptic, the characters are well rounded and engaging, and the vampires are genuinely horrifying.

The show is currently lensing after being given a 13 episode series order by FX and is slated to premiere in July.
