The Walking Dead
On the surface, Star Trek and The Walking Dead don’t have a lot in common. One is a hopeful, inspirational tale of exploration and diplomacy in deep space in the 23rd century, and the other is an almost nihilistic story about survivors of a zombie plague who constantly have to be as concerned about the living as they are about the dead. Still, someone is making the comparison, but it’s not based on any narrative similarities, but rather the series’ longevity. As Star Trek marks 50 years this year, the AMC bosses of The Walking Dead see just an equally as grand an opportunity ahead for Dead. (more…)
The last season of The Walking Dead introduced a character that made the show’s Governor look like Mary Poppins. For a show with multiple mid season cliffhangers, the AMC zombie apocalypse drama never really indulged itself with climactic end of season mysteries…….that was until Season 6 went and left fans screaming at their televisions in disbelief.

No one doubts the capacity of the creators of The Walking Dead to create real drama and tension as we watch a group of survivors struggle through a zombie-filled dystopia where the most dangerous thing walking is not the endless horde of undead cannibals. But when season six ended with the seminal moment where the villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) arrived and marked his territory by bludgeoning one of our heroes to death, there was a twist: we saw the bludgeoning from the perspective of the bludgeoned. Fans were outraged! But don’t worry because Robert Kirkman says it will never happen again. (more…)
The Walking Dead‘s Lennie James has joined the cast of Denis Villeneuve‘s Blade Runner sequel in an as yet unannounced role. Featuring the return of Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard, the long-awaited sequel is set decades after we last saw Deckard and Rachael. What role might James play? (more…)
John Carpenter is a name and a man who is quite synonymous with the horror genre. He’s directed some of the the finest films in horror such as Halloween, The Fog, and The Thing. So whenever the man speaks up about anything regarding the genre, people tend to perk up and listen. When asked about his opinion regarding one of televisions biggest, horror hits, The Walking Dead, he basically referred to the show as a rip-off, and one that has been milked for a long time.
The season finale of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ had everyone buzzing for a couple of reasons. First, we finally saw the long-awaited appearance of Negan (portrayed by Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Secondly, and what generated the most chatter, was its cliffhanger where fans were left to wonder just which character met their fate at the hands of this new bad guy, and his barbed wire-wrapped baseball bat Lucille. Time for Robert Kirkman to have some fun! (more…)
AMC’s The Walking Dead has been immensely popular since the TV show aired in 2010. Due to the sizeable fanbase The Walking Dead created, it was no real surprise Universal Studios Hollywood announced an all year round attraction dedicated to the show. Universal Studios are well known for their immersive and often horrifying Halloween attractions that run from September through to the end of October. The fact that The Walking Dead attraction is open to visitors throughout the year means that regardless of the time of year, fans of the show can get a taste of first hand experience of The Walking Dead. The real question is, can a walk through attraction really generate a similar atmosphere to the show? Well, this week the world was allowed a sneak peak into the inner workings of the attraction that opens July 4th and it looks like they’re going to have a damn good go!
In a move that might be related to all those Walking Dead fans waving pitchforks and burning torches outside The Walking Dead offices, Executive Producer and Director Greg Nicotero just spilled the beans that might calm some of those angry Internet villagers. What could Nicotero possibly say that might reduce all that Fan based The Walking Dead Finale anger? It has everything to do with the Negan intro scene and Jeffery Dean Morgan letting the “F” bombs fly. (more…)
The season finale of The Walking Dead has aired and with it we have the much anticipated arrival of Negan, head honcho of the Saviors. The rumors have been flying for months and the internet has been a buzz with fan theories of who will meet their untimely fate.
Comic fans have been looking forward to Negan’s arrival with almost bated breath; almost immediately people began to hypothesize if the comic death of [REDACTED] would be fulfilled in the television show or if the producers would throw us another curve. After the dead or alive teaser of [REDACTED] in the midseason finale it only spun the theories more out of control. Now that Negan is here did the episode live up to the hype? (more…)
This Sunday will mark the end of The Walking Dead‘s sixth season and the long-awaited arrival of the villainous Negan, leader of the Saviors. Negan’s appearance has been teased mercilessly since the midseason break, right up to last week’s episode where Carl examines a gun taken from the Saviors and sees the image of a barb-wired covered bat carved on the grip. Even people who haven’t read the comics know that Negan is a big bad on par with Lex Luthor, the Joker, and Thanos, so his entrance has to be, to borrow a phrase, huge. Now, the lead actor of The Walking Dead is promising that we will not be disappointed. (more…)
