Guillermo del Toro likes his vampire movies scary, as in, quaking in your booties scary. Not like, "romantic young men sucking on the neck of beautiful people" scary. He wants his vampires menacing and absolutely disgusting, which they should be—you know, given the fact that they're undead beings who lust after our blood and want nothing more than to eat us.

So, it comes as no surprise that even just the short synopsis of his new vampire novel "The Strain" is enough to keep us up at night: "They have always been here. Vampires. In secret and in darkness. Waiting. Now their time has come. In one week, Manhattan will be gone. In one month, the country. In two months—the world." You know you're petrified already too, don't lie!
