GUILLERMO DEL TORO / THE STRAIN TRILOGY

 

Born and raised in Guadalajara, Mexico, Guillermo del Toro made his feature directorial debut in 1993 with the film Cronos, and has since gone on to direct, among other films, Mimic, The Devil's Backbone, Blade II,Hellboy I, Hellboy II, and Pan's Labyrinth, which garnered enormous critical praise worldwide and won three Academy Awards. Del Toro has produced and written films numerous films. He is currently working on a remake of Frankenstein; it’s been announced that James Cameron will produce Del Toro’s 3-D At the Mountains of Madness, and that Del Toro will direct Disney’s The Haunted Mansion. 

 

With Chuck Hogan, Del Toro has become a novelist as well. Their first novel was The Strain, about which all that must be said is this:

 

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.

 

“I cannot wait to see where Del Toro and Hogan take us next.”  -- James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Doomsday Key

 

The wait is over! Guillermo Del Toro returns with The Fall -- the second blood-chilling volume in their critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling Strain Trilogy. The Fall picks up where The Strain left off -- with a vampiric infection spreading like wildfire across America as a small band of heroes struggles to save the dwindling human race from the vampire plague. Horror fiction and dark fantasy fans will be swept up in this epic story that bestselling author Nelson DeMille describes as “Bram Stoker meets Stephen King meets Michael Crichton.”

 

In addition to his multiple screen ventures, Del Toro is, with Chuck Hogan, writing the third volume in The Strain trilogy.

 

Film fans, young filmmakers and vampire and horror novel fans alike won’t want to miss this very special event!
