From Under The Dome to The Strain: How Adaptions Are Taking Over TV
In times when the Vampire Romance was taking over young adult female's hearts, the release of The Strain
in 2009 started a refreshing new trend in the genre: Vampire novels going Horror again with new modern characteristics. Guillermo del Toro, director of Pacific Rim and Pan's Labyrinth, and Chuck Hogan created a masterpiece with their debut trilogy. Vampirism as a disease which transforms their hosts into brutal monsters taking over the world - a great mix of Vampire fiction with a post-apocalyptic backdrop. Only a year after, in 2010, Justin Cronin released his first Vampire novel The Passage
- a tome that spans over several eras after a similar post-apocalyptic invasion of the undead and also the first novel of a trilogy.
Now, in 2014, Cronin's final installment of The Passage Trilogy
has yet to be released, but The Strain
has already taken over another medium: the TV Screen.
