If it takes too long to rent "Walking Dead" the "Strain" is similar only with a virus that creates vampires. Some great vampire horror and human dog eat dog drama.

Based on a series of books by Chuck Hogan and Guillermo del Toro ("Pan's Labyrinth," "Pacific Rim), who also created and produced the series, this mixes disaster plague film with vampire horror. Fans of del Toro will recognize his dark wit and creative visuals. A great cast, including Corey Stoll ("House of Cards"), Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, and the old caretaker from "Harry Potter" keep it grounded in reality. Now that "Walking Dead" has run out of steam and "True Blood" is off the air, this is the best, smartest horror show going. Season 2 is coming.

Liked the book a lot. Very disappointed in the dvd. Like a bad Stephen King t.v. movie
