The FX drama series The Strain is creepy, gory and just bloody good fun. Having seen eight of the 13 episodes that will make up Season 1, I can say that it’s everything I’d want from a summer TV series, sprouted from the crazy imaginative mind of Guillermo del Toro.
Taking advantage of their time at Comic-Con, The Strain held an exclusive fan event, called “He Is Here,” at the Reading Cinemas Gaslamp 15. While showrunner Carlton Cuse and most of the cast dropped by to greet the line, Guillermo del Toro spent quite some time in the theater lobby, chatting with fans and signing the posters that were given out. Even comic book artist Mike Huddleston was there, signing and sketching. And, of course, The Master himself introduced the screening of the pilot episode. Hit the jump for photos of a collection of prominent props and costumes that were on display from the show.
