The first episode of the hit FX horror TV show, The Strain, starts off with its mystery in full tilt as a mysterious creature infects an entire airplane. Writers Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan spin a scary, gory and intriguing premiere episode. Along with Dr. Goodweather and the CDC, the show introduces us to Professor Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley) and the evil duo of Eldritch Palmer (Johnathan Hyde) and Thomas Eichhorst (Richard Sammel). The pilot contains graphic scenes including beating hearts, hungry parasites and a shrouded vampires who sucks blood and beats in heads. And the most chilling moment is the realization that “love” will drive them (the infected) home.
