FX has released a new teaser image for The Strain, their highly-anticipated adaptation of the trilogy of vampire novels by Guillermo del Toro and Chuch Hogan.

To be honest, if you haven't read the source material, the image might be slightly underwhelming: a bunch of body bags laid out in a hangar.

However, for those in the know, those body bags mean very bad things for the "dear ones" of the victims inside.

The Strain is a high-concept thriller that sees New York hit by a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. Corey Stoll (House of Cards) stars as Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, head of the CDC Canary team in the city, while David Bradley is the mysterious vampire hunter Setrakian.

[The Strain](movie:936017) is set to premiere its first 13-episode season in July this year.
