THE WALKING DEAD consumes audiences by imagining the unimaginable - a world overrun by ravenous ... More

THE WALKING DEAD consumes audiences by imagining the unimaginable - a world overrun by ravenous zombies, where, in fact, the humans may be the true monsters. A compelling study of the fragility of community, the pulse of power and the horrible cost of fear, this genre classic reaches beyond the conventions of horror to find terror in living.

THE WALKING DEAD feeds our hunger for a new take on a classic genre. Zombies have long breathed ... More

THE WALKING DEAD feeds our hunger for a new take on a classic genre. Zombies have long breathed life into the horror of human nature in an extreme state, but here writer/director/executive producer Frank Darabont smashes the boundaries of terror on television. THE WALKING DEAD also understands the power of silence, as a slowly turning doorknob may reveal our deepest fear - the loss of our own humanity.
