Warning: These Five New Teasers for The Strain Are Creepy and Gross (VIDEO)

By Kaitlin Thomas

FX has a pretty good-looking summer programming slate lined up for the coming months, but the network is clearly banking on its newest drama The Strain becoming its next big thing after last summer's The Bridge straddled the border between greatness and crazypants. Based on a trilogy of books by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, the del Toro-created Strain centers on a viral outbreak in New York City that looks a hell of a lot like vampirism.

The folks over in the FX promotional department must be working overtime, because the network has released five new teasers ahead of the series' July 13 premiere. There's not much to them, but I think we may have found that jar of hearts Christina Perri was so upset about about a few summers ago. And while I'm not sure any of these new clips can top the recent one that presumably features a pimp throwing candy into the street, they're still delightfully disturbing and worth checking out...

Which of these teasers is your favorite? Will you be watching The Strain?

    Congo can watch it actually. Not from Congo either ;-p

  • JacquelineMcN May 27, 2014

    not available in my country...come on im in the uk not the congo....

  • NeeUyank May 29, 2014

    so it would have been OK if you were from Congo but it is not OK because you're from UK? why exactly? what makes you guys more superior than to people of Congo, especially when it comes to video viewership??? (I am not from either of these countries but this level of self-entitlement is really, really annoying!)

    ok buddy try reading between the lines instead of using w/e to get a chip on your soldier off.

  • NeeUyank Sep 05, 2014

    I read between the lines, that's exactly what I did.. Why don't you try to understand what you said was wrong and that it requires an apology instead of projecting this on me?

  • JacquelineMcN Sep 07, 2014

    yeah i'm the one projecting, have a nice life...

  • ted2332 May 20, 2014

    Awesome, it looks as scary as the books.
    People had better watch this show I want to see it completed.
    I am already getting a The Walking Dead level of obsession with this show and its not even on yet :)

  • KayWatkins May 20, 2014

    Heck yeah I will! I wonder if it'll stay true to how the book series ended!

    Yeah! This one played in my country! Obviously it was not enough to help me make up my mind, but my curiosity is peaked.

    Definitely can't wait. I'm halfway through book three at the moment, and it's been a great series so far. Hoping the tv series does it justice.

  • Sanity_Bleeds May 20, 2014

    I'm only about 1/3 of the way through book 3 myself now. Book 2 almost turned me away from the series with all it's nonsense, but 3 has been one hell of a ride so far!

    Didn't find them creepy or gross, but I will say this...I'm tired of teasers I just want to see some actual footage of the show! =P
    Darn thing premieres in like 2 months and all I've seen are teasers and a couple of pictures.
