“The Walking Dead” The series that will appear on AMC on Halloween Sunday the 31st at 9 pm and should be a credit to the comic of the same name. The comic version was written by Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore who later was replaced by Charlie Adlard. This is a must see for zombie lovers.
As the story unfolds a sheriff Rick Grimes is shot and wounded and taken to a hospital where when he awakes he discovers he is alone and zombies are everywhere. He eventually gathers his family and friends and they decide on what to do.
The story is similar to other zombie movies as it is an apocalypse and the zombies are everywhere. This will make it in a way similar to other version’s. The zombies can be killed in the trditional way by shooting them in the head. The story will center on a group of individuals who have gathered in Atlanta because that is where they were told to go for help.
Unlike other zombie movies when a person is bitten they can cut off the infected area and will survive. Bites are what spread this infection from person to person. This series will be very similar in this respect as well.
Zombies can be domesticated or at least taught not to bite their loved ones. This is done by letting them stay with people until they are used to them.
People on the other hand can blend in with zombies by putting zombie fluids on them. This will make them smell like the other zombies and they will not attack. Zombies in this respect use their sense of smell more in this series than in other zombie type movies.
When bitten and death occurs reanimation can happen in minutes or hours depending, making this a little more intense. In the classics they always seem to reanimate within the same time frames.
All in all I am personally am looking foreword to this series and will follow it through out.
