Guillermo del Toro's first in a new trilogy of apocalyptic vampire books called, "The Strain," may not arrive until June 2, but a new website has appeared for the project complete with video address by the man himself. In it, he talks about the difference between what makes a vampire story awesome and what makes one sort of wimpy.

Book Synopsis:
Boeing 777 arrives at JFK and is on its way across the tarmac, when it suddenly stops dead. All window shades are pulled down. All lights are out. All communication channels have gone quiet. Crews on the ground are lost for answers, but an alert goes out to the CDC. Dr. Eph Goodweather, head of their Canary project, a rapid-response team that investigates biological threats, gets the call and boards the plane. What he finds makes his blood run cold.

So begins a battle of mammoth proportions as the vampiric virus that has infected New York begins to spill out into the streets. Eph, who is joined by Setrakian and a motley crew of fighters, must now find a way to stop the contagion and save his city—a city that includes his wife and son—before it is too late.

The book almost sounds like it could be a prequel to I am Legend. You can watch Guillermo del Toro's video address after the break.
