The Strain S01 E08: Creatures of the Night


Last week’s episode of “The Strain” was chock full of information via flashbacks on the history between our little Nazi Vamp and all time party pooper, Herr Eichorst (Richard Sammel) and our sword wielding concentration camp survivor, Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley).
