“The Strain”: 10 Grossest Moments

“The Strain,” the small-screen adaptation of Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s vampire novel saga, got off to a slow start during its premiere last night. The show waited more than 20 minutes (without commercials) to get gory—which is somewhat surprising considering the criticism of the horror show’s skin-crawling (and eye-slithering) billboards. If the show’s safe-for-the-street art was considered too extreme, then surely a series on the envelope-pushing FX network would delight fright-ophiles from its start? Once “The Strain” got rolling, it featured some seriously squeam-inducing moments, as is only natural with a series led by epidemiologist Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll). Ew.com catalogs 10 of them.
