The first full creeptastic teaser trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s take on vamp mythos, The Strain, is here.

What’s cool about this new trailer — even though it’s only half a minute long — is that it gives us a tantalizing glimpse at one of the creatures populating the upcoming horror/thriller drama series, as well as letting us in on some of the action. 

The Strain is a 13-episodes series set to air on FX based on del Toro (Hellboy) and Chuck Hogan’s trilogy of vampire novels and comic books.

Here’s how The Strain is described:

A thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.

Co-creators and executive producers and writers del Toro and Hogan co-wrote the pilot together. It was directed by del Toro.

The Strain stars Corey Stoll, Mía Maestro, David Bradley, Natalie Brown, Kevin Durand, Jonathan Hyde, Sean Astin, Richard Sammel, Ben Hyland, Javier Botet and Doug Jones.

The FX series is set to premiere on Sunday, July 13, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Will you be watching?
