Bit of a bitter-sweet this one. Castlevania`s 4th season is set to premiere on the 13th of May and it has been confirmed that it will be its last installment.
With some fans thinking that the series should have ended with Dracula`s death and other claiming that a spin-off could be easily written at this point, it looks like pretty much everyone has mixed feeling about this announcement. Castlevania has thrilled us with a lot of “WHAT IFs” as it introduced a fantasy dimension where all our historical vampire figures were present; you have the vampire hunters and church collaboration that brings “Van Helsing” to mind and last but not least you have this “girl power” type of plot that has taken root with Carmilla prepairing to take the world by storm – literally. Not to mention that Castlevania had an excellent cast that you simply could not go wrong with!
It is currently rummored that Netflix is looking to create a new animation that would take place in the same universe, however I would class it as early speculation for the time being. Lets enjoy Castlevania while we still have new releases and keep our fingers crossed for the new series to be announced after they finish the roll-out for S4 ❤
FX is producing an adaptation of “The Strain” – a 2009 vampire horror novel by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. It is part of a trilogy that was later followed by 2 more novels so there`s plenty of room for more seasons to come. They are currently on season 4
The series is name – you guessed it!!! – “The Strain” and part of the series success is assured by the fact that Guillermo del Toro is a co-writter for all the episode scrips.
The main idea of the series is that of a vampiric epidemic in modern day New York. We have the old and the new magnificently intertwined as the main character, dr. Ephraim Goodweather attempts to scientifically explain the phenomenon when professor Abrahamvan Helsing [u, sry! 😛 ] Setrakian enters the stage and explains the century known facts about the strigoi and their Master. In essence almost all of the established powers and weaknesses of the vampires are kept in the description, however there`s a certain scientific spin given.
The vampire is presented more as a parasite. The vector for vampirism is a capillary worm, which, once introduced into the human host’s bloodstream introduces an incurable and fast-acting virus. By manipulating the host’s genes, the virus causes a human to undergo numerous, radical physical changes. It kills the host then feeds on it until it turns it into a perfect shell. Once full turned it proceeds to reproducing by infecting other people.
In the movie a great deal of emphasis it put on the idea that the dead return to feed on the people they loved most.
Actors: Corey Stoll – Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, the head of the CDC Canary Team in New York City. David Bradley – Professor Abraham Setrakian, a Holocaust survivor turned New York pawn-shop owner. [Jim Watson portrays the young Setrakian in flashbacks] Mía Maestro – Dr. Nora Martinez, a caring biochemist

No, my kind of vampires don`t sparkle in the sun and don`t have emo hairdos. They most certainly don`t wear tons of make-up and don`t chase deer in the forest! For me, the vampire is the bloodthirsty mythological creature that inspired the gothic novels and brought to surface the fears of the subconscious. For me… the image of the vampire is Norferatu or Dracula, surely not Edward Cullen. The only romantic shades that I can accept are those given by Anne Rice in the Vampire Chronicles.
