The Walking Dead: Check Out the Poster and Trailer

My buddies over at All the Rage told me I MUST check out ‘The Walking Dead,’ AMC’s six-episode series based on the comic book written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics.

I’ll just say right off the bat this isn’t for kids. Honestly, I can’t find an FCC rating on it anywhere (when I do, I’ll post it here), but I’m guessing it’ll be rated TV-MA for violence, language and, no doubt, sexual situations. I’ll play the trailer after the jump, because it features both violence and language (though no sex).

Here’s the story: Police officer Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) wakes up in a hospital and finds the entire town in chaos. There are bodies everywhere, and the ones wandering around are scary and, well, they’re zombies.

So he sets out to find his wife Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies), and eventually runs across other survivors of the zombie apocalypse: fellow cop-shop guy Shane (Jon Bernthal, he played Rodriguez on ‘The Pacific’); Andrea (Laurie Holden), one of two sisters who join the survivors; and Glenn (Steven Yeun), an expert scavenger.

‘The Walking Dead’ premieres, quite appropriately, on Halloween Night, Oct. 31, at 10/9c on AMC. After seeing ‘Dead Snow’ at a midnight showing of the Traverse City Film Festival a few years ago, I was all about the zombies. ‘Zombieland’ is another great slasher-zombie flick.

I really have to be in the right mood for zombies, but watching them with a bunch of other loons at midnight is a blast. ‘The Walking Dead’ will make for an interesting Halloween night in my own living room (since ‘Ghost Hunters’ last Halloween was an epic fail). Don’t worry – I think the 13-year-old will be on a sleepover that night (and hopefully NOT watching ‘The Walking Dead’).

Check out the trailer for ‘The Walking Dead.’ Are you a zombie fan?

    Zombies! I like a good zombie, but more Shaun of the Dead than Dawn of the Dead. Would love to hear the scoop on the new “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” movie.

    Hm. Not a fan of the zombies. Though I must say that’s a very nice movie poster!

    NOT a zombie fan. NOT watching this one!
