I’ll start off by saying that this series compelled me to create an IMDb account.

There are many things that makes this show one of my all time favorites: 1) The intense, noir setting 2) No unwanted random scenes (Everything contributes to the plot) 3) Fast paced (the beginning is a little slow but it’s very gripping) 4) Del Torro and his direction 5) Great animation and CGI 6) Very believable and rational story line 7) Dark atmosphere and background 8) Apocalypse and survival strategies

I’m a person that enjoys dark, intense setting with good story line and action I love shows like Death Note (anime), Lost, Game of thrones, the 100, etc

If you like any of the above mentioned shows or a thrilling, dark themed apocalyptic series, you’re going to absolutely love this!

People who are asking so many questions right at the beginning of the show and are calling this stupid, are dumb AF. Literally everything is explained as the show goes on!

The first episode is captivating to say the least. It’s a little slow after that, but it picks up pace real quick and from that point on wards it’s one crazy ride with some kick-ass characters and a dark, apocalyptic atmosphere.

Created by Guillermo del Toro, Chuck Hogan. With Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Kevin Durand, Jonathan Hyde. A mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism ravages the city of New York.
