With The Strain two weeks on the air, the entire cast of the show sat on a panel for critics, and I landed some one on ones with the big guns for Shock Till You Drop. Of course, the biggest gun is creator Guillermo del Toro – co-author of the book with Chuck Hogan and director of the pilot episode – who touches on the “vampire biology” of the series, Pacific Rim 2 and Crimson Peak. The Strain begins when a plane lands on the tarmac with seemingly every passenger dead. A few wake up and CDC Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) can’t keep them under quarantine. However, the infection continues to change them and if you haven’t read the book yet, here’s an early spoiler warning: I ask del Toro about what happens to rock star Gabriel Bolivar (Jack Kesy).

The Unseen: The Goop, Gore & Commentary of Society
We are living in a material world, and greed is good. Somewhere amidst all the synth music, hairspray and day-glow neon of the 1980s, greed and excessive wealth were not just accepted, they were downright admirable. The rampant economic discrepancies and class identification issues boiled to a head on screen in films like Pretty in Pink, The Secret of my Success, and Less Than Zero. Some filmmakers gave commentary on the wealth by creating the standard 1980s rich asshole character (who was usually played by James Spader) or by showing that wealth would make you forget the “good things” in life as is the theme is movies like Brewster’s Millions, Rain Man, and Baby Boom. But few films tackle the dystopian illusion to quite the extent of Brian Yuzna’s Society, and definitely not with as much latex and goo. It is tragic this film is so hard to find and has garnered such exceedingly limited releases in the States.
