Guillermo del Toro oversees the TV adaptation of his first vampire novel

★★★★★

Guillermo del Toro oversees the TV adaptation of his first vampire novel (with Chuck Hogan), and as you’d expect, the result is weird, gory and features disturbing things in jars. It sometimes plays like Blade II if Wesley Snipes had never shown up, but as the vampire apocalypse inexorably builds it makes for a skin-crawling and highly addictive watch.
