After finally dropping the first footage from his new horror thriller The Strain, Guillermo del Toro has unveiled the first look at the terrifying uber-vamp who will serve as the show’s big bad.

The initial 13 episode run kicks off with the mysterious landing of a “dead” jet, then ramps up into full on sci-fi insanity with a massive conspiracy surrounding ancient vampires and viral disease.

It turns out the mysterious viral outbreak is being spread by The Master, one of the oldest vampires in existence. Del Toro revealed the first look at some concept art of the massive creature with Entertainment Weekly, and also gave some comments explaining how the terrifying, face-sucking creature will look.
