Author Dallas Mayr, aka Jack Ketchum, Has Passed Away

  • DailyDead
When it came to writing about the horrors of real life and the human monsters that walk among us, there was perhaps no one better than author Jack Ketchum, aka Dallas Mayr, and we're sad to share the news that Dallas has passed away at the age of 71.

Jack Ketchum's official website confirmed the news of Dallas' passing, and fellow author and close friend Christopher Golden also shared the news on Twitter, mentioning that Dallas had been fighting cancer for a long time.

When it came to writing visceral prose that pulled no punches, Dallas was a master. Whether writing about cannibals in Off Season, an old man seeking revenge for his dog in Red, or a pregnant woman trying to survive demented kidnappers in Right to Life, Dallas dug deep into tormented psyches and harrowing situations, shining an unforgiving light on both the humanity and depravity of all-too-real horrors

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 8 – Episode 8: “How it’s Gotta Be”

Oh dear… It started so strong, stumbled in the middle and, well, imploded towards the end. With its mid-season finale The Walking Dead left a clear message: all hope is lost. The show unfortunately seems more focused on drawing seasons out, padding them for a longer run and preventing any closure to storylines therefore restricting development and growth. What’s worse is all this meandering leaves the show feeling like a stale stew of left-over meat.

The episode opens with Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) and The Scavengers ditching Rick (Andrew Lincoln) once the Saviors inside The Sanctuary start shooting. Why he felt that getting them onside was important is beyond us. If his plan had played through like he intended, they wouldn’t need The Scavengers and considering they seem to side with the victors regardless, they could have been confronted once the war was won.

Elsewhere, Enid (Katelyn Nacon) and

'Walking Dead' Ratings Are in the Basement Again

2017-12-05T11:34:04-08:00'Walking Dead' Ratings Are in the Basement Again

If you were hoping that last week's small gain in the ratings for The Walking Dead was a sign that the series' disastrous eighth season was turning around, you were in for a disappointment this week. The seventh episode of the season was, by far, the lowest-rated episode of the season so far, and it took the series back to the season-two-level ratings it's been posting all season.

As an illustration of how far and how fast the series has fallen, consider that the audience for this week's episode was smaller than that of last season's premiere by nearly 10 million viewers, a drop of 56 percent. Next week is the series' mid-season finale, which typically sees a big ratings jump from previous episodes, but it may be already too late to salvage the season.

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 8 – Episode 6: “The King, the Widow and Rick”

“People who aren’t leaders always think they know best”

Last week’s pit stop from the war between The Saviors and everybody else continues this week as the allied forces communicate to the various communities what has transpired so far – mainly that The Saviors are all but defeated. These stalling episodes are a much maligned trope of the show but the traditional war narrative has always welcomed time for the reflection.

The episode opens with troops returning to their respective communities and handing out notes, detailing the events that took place in the previous episodes, to those who remained. The Kingdom mourn their dead, having taken the heaviest casualties and we learn that King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) has become a depressed recluse.

We then jump over to Rick’s (Andrew Lincoln) subplot for the episode and it turns out that that long road he was heading down at the

‘The Walking Dead 8×06: The King, The Widow & Rick’ Review

So, the first battles of the war in The Walking Dead is done, and the Saviours are trapped inside their base. Things in The Walking Dead are slowing back down again while the characters have to think on their actions, and what the future brings.

This week, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) makes a visit to the junk yard to try to get Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) to change sides again. Ezekiel is left in mourning and gets a pep talk from Carol (Melissa McBride), and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) makes a decision about the prisoners that Jesus (Tom Payne).

While Rick, Ezekiel, and Maggie may be the focus of the episode this week, there are also things going on with characters that were in the background during the war. This includes Michonne (Danai Gurira) and Rosita (Christian Serratos). The confrontation they have with two of the Saviours shows they aren’t ready to

'Walking Dead' Teaser Strips Rick Down to Nothing

In the ongoing battle between boxers and briefs, there's no room for negotiation — at least not where the Garbage People and Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) are concerned.

The preview for next week's episode of AMC's The Walking Dead, called "Time For After," features the leader of Alexandria stripped down to the essentials — essentially, his boxers and nothing else, as he's still a captive of Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) and the Heapsters, awaiting some form of violent justice.

Are we in for a rematch between Rick and Winslow, the armored walker who fought against our fearless...

The Walking Dead: How That Scavenger Storyline Goes Down in the Comics

It looks like, unfortunately (for now), Jadis and the Scavengers aren't going anywhere on The Walking Dead. This junkyard group was introduced in the season seven midseason premiere, and we weren't quite sure what to make of them based on their role in the comics. The Scavengers do appear in the comics, but they are not nearly as important as they seem to be in the Walking Dead TV show. AMC is taking some liberties with the re-creation of the Scavengers - for instance, Jadis (played by Pollyanna McIntosh) is not in the comics at all. The leader of the Scavengers in the comics is actually a man named Derek, who does not seem to appear in the TV series. In the comics, the Scavengers' storyline goes down line this: a still-living Andrea kills their leader after they stumble upon Alexandria. The rest of the Scavengers are then quickly killed after and disposed of.

You Have to See The Walking Dead's Jadis in Her Other Big Role

Image Source: AMC Jadis, the head of The Walking Dead's junkyard dwellers, known as the Scavengers, is an odd, slightly comic presence in season seven, but she has been largely absent in season eight until Sunday night's "The King, the Widow and Rick," which could just as well have been called "The King, the Widow, Rick and the Weird Lady With Jim Carrey's Haircut From Dumb and Dumber." Played by Scottish actress Pollyanna McIntosh, Jadis appears early in the episode while working on a wire sculpture and wearing nothing but a red apron. When there's a knock at the Scavengers' outer gate, she changes into her usual black hoodie and pants before greeting her guest - Rick, there seeking her support in the war against the Saviors - and instead channels her weirdness through kooky koans like "trust you, shot you" and "why back after?"

Rick Continues To Enact His Plan In Promo For Next Week’s Walking Dead

After last week’s episode mostly focused on Negan and life at the Sanctuary, the latest installment of The Walking Dead aired tonight and switched the spotlight back to Rick and his allies’ all-out war against the Saviors, with just about all of the major ongoing storylines being moved along. We also got to see the welcome returns of Michonne, Carl and Rosita, who were last seen in the season premiere.

In “The King, The Widow, And Rick,” Andrew Lincoln’s survivor went to the Scavengers to ask for aid in the fight with the Saviors, but was met with a less-than-welcome reception from their leader, Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh, making her first appearance this season). Meanwhile, over at the Hilltop, Maggie struggled with the dilemma of what to do with their prisoners – kill them or let them live – and King Ezekiel was still reeling for the recent losses of his Kingdommers and,

The folks at the Sanctuary are learning what it's like when you cross Rick Grimes, and now it looks like the Garbage People might find out the same thing. In a new preview for next week's episode, Rick delivers an ultimatum to the Trash Queen, and he means business.

The Walking Dead Star Says Fans Should Expect To Cry In Season 8

Another season of The Walking Dead, another major death being teased.

One of the hit zombie drama’s favourite things to do to give itself – and its audience – a shot in the arm is to wipe out one of the main characters now and then. Last season, it was Glenn and Abraham’s time to bite the bullet (or, uh, get hit by a barbwire bat, as the case may be), and now we’re in season 8 and being teased with more death to come.

Pollyanna McIntosh – who joined the series in season 7 as Jadis, leader of the Heapsters – hinted at what lies ahead in a recent interview and warned fans that they should “expect to cry” as “someone’s gonna die.”

“They can expect an explosive season. They can expect to cry. As ever, someone’s gonna die, so their heartstrings will be pulled as always. But hopefully the enjoyment,

Halloween 2017: 11 Movies You Should Watch on Shudder

  • DailyDead
We’re in the last remaining days of October, meaning many of us will be trying to cram in as many horror movies as possible between now and Halloween. For my last round of Shudder picks this month, I thought I’d go with a much looser theme: there’s nothing that ties these titles together except that they’re really good movies I think you should watch. Some you may recognize, others may be less familiar to you. All of them are worth streaming on Shudder.

The Bride of Frankenstein (1935, dir. James Whale) It’s not officially October without the Universal Monsters, so big thanks to Shudder for adding most of the big ones to their expanding library of streaming options. There’s no wrong choice when it comes to the classics, but I’ll make the case that Universal never got better than The Bride of Frankenstein, James Whale

The Walking Dead season 8 premiere is a thank you letter to fans

The premiere episode of The Walking Dead season 8 is apparently a thank you letter to the fans.

The first episode of the new season is just around the corner, and fans are anticipating what the hit zombie show has in store for them this time around. The show isn’t quite as popular as it once was but the series’ producers want to thank those that are still with the show in season 8’s opener.

Executive producer Greg Nicotero has told Variety that the 100th episode is “a thank-you letter” for those that have stuck around since the beginning.

“There are probably two or three sequences in the first episode that I was particularly excited about doing that people will instantly recognize. It’s sort of a thank-you letter for people who have been with us all along and nodding to little things here and there. Some of them might be a little more obvious,
