I really wanted to review FX's The Strain - the vampire apocalypse series from Guillermo del Toro, Chuck Hogan and Carlton Cuse - for BAD, and I regret that I haven't had the time to give this show the coverage it deserves. It's an incredibly fun, ballsy, unabashed take on an otherwise stale genre, and it feels like the best, bloodiest kind of pulp.
So I'm very excited to host today's giveaway, a prize pack celebrating the fact that Season One of The Strain is now available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. Here's what the prize pack entails:
* THE STRAIN Season One, Blu-ray
* THE STRAIN Graphic novel (Vol. 1) Paperback
* THE STRAIN Tiles T-Shirt
To enter, just email me at [email protected] with your name, mailing address, the subject line THE STRAIN GIVEAWAY and your favorite scene and episode from the first season of The Strain. This contest ends at 5pm CT on Thursday, December 25.
If you don't feel like leaving this up to chance, you can grab a copy of The Strain's first season at the link below, and check out the first volumes of The Strain graphic novel here. Plus read some juicy scoop from the SDCC The Strain panel; the series is the only show in its first season to be rewarded with a Hall H panel.
The infection can’t be stopped. Follow the harrowing plague in both the graphic novel and TV adaptation of THE STRAIN, based on the novel by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. Season 1 on Blu-ray™, DVD, and Digital HD – now available!
The site features a side-by-side comparison of key scenes from the original graphic novel to the TV show, with behind the scenes interviews and commentary from the writer of the novel, Mike Huddleston (also a consultant on the show). Dive into the mind of Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan! http://twostrains.com
