The Walking Dead

Day 346

Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year. I don't know why I like the spooky stuff; maybe it is because fear is such a primal emotion. It gets the heart pumping, it raises your awareness, it makes you feel.

I am a sucker for horror movies. I don't know why I like them but I do. It is not like I seek them out but when they find me, I will sit still and watch them.

And zombies are the worst.

They are slow but nothing stops them. They are numerous but yet they can be one of your own family. I think that is what freaks me about them. Your closest friends and family can become zombies.

Anyway, I have mentioned many times before that one of my favorite graphic novels, The Walking Dead, was turned into a TV show and debuts this Halloween. I am looking forward to seeing that comic book come to life (heh... come to death would be a better phrase) and I am looking forward to being a bit spooked. If you have seen zombie movies and like them, this will be right up your alley. What sets this book above many others is that it is focused on the survivors and not the zombie apocalypse itself. You may never know what caused the zombie breakout and I personally don't care if I ever find out what the cause was. I care more for the survivors and believe me, there are not that many. The author, Robert Kirkman is not afraid to get rid of some favorite cast members at any time. Oftentimes, the zombies are merely an afterthought.

The real danger comes with those surviving with you.

Here are a couple of teasers of the show. The first one is relatively safe to watch.

The second clip, I will warn you is graphic and does contain some peppery language. All stuff I am sure I would be blurting out if I was in a zombie apocalypse! You can see it by clicking here. If you dare!

Cannot wait for Halloween!

  1. Zombies are especially scary/creepy/terrifying!!
    I've seen the previews for this new show and it does look quite interesting, but I'm such a wimp I probably will be too scared to watch it. Hope you like it, though!
