The Strain S2 trailer

This full trailer for the new season of The Strain is full of big makeup and effects shots, and a promise that the show’s concept of Manhattan overrun by vampires will really boil over into insanity this year. And that’s half of what we want to see from the show; the other half is something that’s harder to get across in a one-minute trailer, and that’s further character development.
