TV Review: The Strain 2×05 “Quick and Painless”

  • Alvin Anderson

    The Spider Kids were very horrifying and reminded us all of the poor, blind kids kidnapped and helpless in the clutches of the monsters. Very gruesome and effective as new vamp monsters. Haunting images of Kelly ‘mothering’ them. I’m on the edge of my seat watching the story unfold and trying to gleam where they are going to take it all–if they are going to follow the book closely or re-imagine it like Game of Thrones. Either way, good horror TV. The clearing of the apartment house was a close resemblance of the movie “REC”. I can’t wait to watch this story unfold–this is much better than making it into a theater movie.
