If you've seen any zombie film, the flesh-craving creatures of AMC's The Walking Dead aren't exactly novel. That's not to say that makeup and special effects wizard Gregory Nicotero hasn't seriously outdone himself. Or that being caught on a city block surrounded by hundreds of soulless, hungry ghouls isn't terrifying. It's just that this story is about more than delivering a few scares. "The most compelling part of the series is how emotionally involved you become in these characters' lives," executive producer Gale Anne Hurd (Terminator, Aliens) tells TVGuide.com.

To me, that is unexpected and remarkable." To Read More Click Here.

With its putrid zombie hoard, The Walking Dead is the ultimate Halloween gift for fans of gore: There are splattered heads, swarming flies and enough tattered, rotting flesh to make most watch through splayed fingers.

"There's us and the dead. We survive this by pulling together, not apart," says deputy sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln). "It's a story that anyone can relate to," explains Robert Kirkman, author of the acclaimed comic-book series on which the show is based. "The zombies are representative of disaster, but the focus is on the people — everything they go through." To Read More Click Here.

AMC has released the poster for Frank Darabont's The Walking Dead, adapted from the comic series of the same name. The Walking Dead poster is a bleak image indeed, featuring protagonist Andrew Lincoln apparently going the wrong way. As bad an idea as it may seem, Lincoln is on a mission to reunite with his family - and yes, he's that kind of hero. The Walking Dead is known as a transcendent bit of story-telling, an effective and familiar zombie apocalypse story AND an intense and challenging character driven epic. George Romero would be proud.
