From the clips presented it looks ominous with it's tale of a virus that turns its victims into vampires. The cast includes Corey Stoll ('House Of Cards') , Mia Maestro ('Alias') and Sean Astin ('Lord Of The Rings'), as well as veteran British actor David Bradley ('Game Of Thrones', 'The World's End'). Bradley assumes the role of ancient seer saying "I've seen this disease before, all the passengers must be destroyed', followed by "he's here" and ending on a creepy, large vampiric creature.
