Walking Dead Coming This Fall

Finally, a network's decided to cash in on the zombie-genre. On October 31st, AMC will launch The Walking Dead based on the comic book of the same name. The 4.5 minute trailer from ComicCon and Early photos, like the one on the right, look pretty awesome. I'm psyched.

High production value zombie movie every week? Awesome. It's even got that guy from Jericho.

I've read some of the comic, and can't say I'm a huge fan. Started out well and then got too vulgar, bleak and brutal for my tastes. I know it's zombie horror, but jeez! If this was on HBO, I'd be concerned it would follow along exactly the same lines. But it's AMC, a basic cable channel, so there's going to be lots of stuff they'll have to handle differently--language and some of the plot twists and turns that the comic takes that I doubt would fly on national TV...we'll see.

Anyways, 90 minutes of zombie action debuts on Halloween. If you're not convinced yet, check out the trailer on AMC.com >
