Review: The Strain

The Strain
The Strain by Guillermo del Toro
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Popcorn thriller. GDT and Hogan write about vampires for the extended adolescent crowd, after Twilight and before Anne Rice. These vampires are revealed to be tools of mankind, the kind that cut the hands of those who wield them. My favorite character was not the workaholic doctor or the mysterious vampire hunter from the past, but the humble rat-catcher. Somehow I doubt he lives through the sequels, though.
