A Quiet Place is based on a world where you can’t make a sound unless you want to be torn apart by some ugly ass monster. While the movie acts as though people know how to live a good life without dying, the reality is that most of us would be killed within the first month. (Or as many have figured on Twitter, their first fart.) Let’s face it we are creatures of habit and if we forget our cell phone or lose our electricity we have a complete meltdown. Here are a just a few reasons that you might die.

Hey everyone, “lets” look at Joss Whedon’s other movies. NO, you say? You only care about The Avengers? Fine, be that way. I guess I’ll be the only one watching Whedon turn the horror genre on its ass! I’m forever alone anyway, so…

Lionsgate has released it’s first television commercial for Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon‘s upcoming horror film The Cabin in the Woods.

Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Bad things happen. If you think you know this story, think again. From fan favorites Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard comes “The Cabin in the Woods” a mind-blowing horror film that turns the genre inside out. Produced by Whedon and directed by Goddard from a script by both, the film stars Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams, Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford.

Check out the spot below:

So, Evil Dead meets Portal. Joss Whedon, you’ve done it again! This looks incredible.

The Cabin in the Woods is set for April 13th release.

The Walking Dead Has It’s Lead

A few days ago we reported that the AMC network green-lit a six-episode start to the television adaptation of The Walking Dead, the immensely popular comic series by Robert Kirkman. Right on the heels of this nerd appeasing news AMC announces that the books main protagonist has been cast. Andrew Lincoln will play small town cop, father, husband and one armed badass, Rick Grimes.

Lincoln is a bit of an unknown. He’s past work primarily consists of British TV including stints on This Life, and Teachers. Unsure if this classy brit can fufill the role of the burden heavy leader of a group of survivors coping with the zombie apocalypse? Well, fear not because he’s got Robert Kirkmans endorsement.  Robert was qouted saying: “Andrew Lincoln, wow, what an amazing find this guy is.”

He said: “Writing Rick Grimes month after month in the comic series, I had no idea he was an actual living breathing human being, and yet here he is. I couldn’t be more thrilled with how this show is coming together.”

If he’s good enough for Robert Kirkman he’s good enough for us.

The Walking Dead is about people coming together to survive and the story follows a Kentucky police officer, Rick Grimes, and his family along with a bunch of other survivors who work together in resistance of the world that’s been overrun with zombies. As I’ve said before, It’s not about Zombies popping out of no where to give us a good scare. No, it’s a rich, smart, character driven story about what happens when a group of peope are forced to survive in a world ruled by the dead. It’s filled with great moments of suspense, psychological terror and gut wrenching loss. It will make for a fantastic television series.

The series officially begins production in June and is set to premier in October during AMC’s Fearfest event.
