OUT: Traditional vampires. Could the post-Twilight trend finally be over? There’s been a drop in bloodsucker dramas in the broadcast pipeline — not one current pilot has neck biters. But on the cable side, FX has director Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain in July, and there’s the aforementioned From Dusk Till Dawn reboot. Both shows notably promise a new breed of sparkle-free unromantic vampire-esque creatures unlike any we’ve seen before, such as The Strain‘s proboscis-equipped bad guys in the comic image above — you don’t want to kiss that guy, do you?
