'The Strain' SPOILERS: Del Toro's TERRIFYING Vampires Send WORMS Throughout Victims' Bodies, Have STINGERS Attached To Their Mouths [TRAILER]
(Photo : FX/The Strain's Official Facebook Page) New spoilers have surfaced about FX and Guillermo Del Toro's new vampires that will appear on the upcoming show "The Strain:" the vampires transmit the virus through the victim's veins and once they turn into a vampire, they drink blood via a stinger attached to their mouths!

As the premiere for Guillermo Del Toro's new FX show "The Strain" draws closer, new spoilers have been released as to how his vampires infect humans as well as how they are able to drink the blood of their victims, which is completely different from the way vampire are portrayed in other popular television shows such as "True Blood" or "The Vampire Diaries."

In the new trailer for "The Strain," fans get a glimpse of how the virus infects humans, writes Comic Book Movie.

Sean Astin's character notes that the process is similar to a caterpillar turning into a butterfly and viewers see the worms that carry the vampire virus spreading throughout the body of a victim from the doomed plane crash.

Under the black light, the worms crawl through victim's veins to infect their entire body, a process that was based off of the original vampire folklore, notes The New York Daily News.

Chuck Hogan, who is the executive producer for "The Strain," mentions that the original folklore surrounding vampires was rooted in the ancient fear of viruses that were easily transmitted from human to human and that the goal of "The Strain's" parasitic vampires was to bring the pop culture version of the blood-sucking undead back to these terrifying roots.

David Bradley, who is best known for his role as Walder Frey on HBO's hit series "Game of Thrones" and who will be portraying vampire hunter Dr. Abraham Setrakian on "The Strain," also promises in a new interview that Del Toro's vampires will be "visceral" and "unpleasant," adds Access Hollywood.

Bradley also gave a little tidbit as to how the vampires drink blood from humans: they have stringers attached to their mouths, which allows them to easily drain their victims.

Given that the trailer gives fans a glimpse of a newly infected human in the form of a a young man standing in front of the mirror watching his teeth shift and a little girl in a blood-spattered dress, it's safe to say that Bradley and Hogan are correct in their assessment that Del Toro has managed to create terrifying vampires that stay true to the roots of the original folklore!

For fans of Del Toro or vampire lore who are intrigued by this new take on the blood-sucking undead, make sure that you tune in to FX at 10p.m. on July 13, 2014 to watch "The Strain!"
