The Walking Dead Hits The Road And Talks Hair Style In This First Look At Self Help

fb share tweet share

AMC’s The Walking Dead is back for season 5, and the young season has been strong up to this point, building on the momentum of the final half of season 4. Last night’s episode, “Slabtown,” while not terrible, is the weakest link of the season thus far, which is too bad, because there’s some interesting stuff going on story wise (read my thoughts HERE if you’re so inclined). Hopefully this was just a momentary hiccup, and the show will return to its new form next week. To tease that, the network released a peek at the next installment, “Self Help,” as well as some behind the scenes look at “Slabtown.”

At the moment it looks like season 5 of The Walking Dead is going to pull a similar trick to what they did with the second half of season 4, and split the core group up into smaller factions and focus on one of them each episode. I’m totally on board with that, this strategy provides the opportunity to tell smaller, more in depth story, and allows for more character development.

The Walking Dead Post-Game: Slabtown Lets Beth Fly Solo

fb share tweet share

They’ve been hinting at it and building up to it, but tonight The Walking Dead finally lets you know what happened to Beth (Emily Kinney). Another one of the characters that had been, for too long, basically useless, Beth started to come into her own in the latter portion of season 4. In fact, maybe the best episode of the entire season, “Still,” belongs almost wholly to her, featuring two people, Beth and Daryl (Norman Reedus), and no one else. But can she carry an entire episode all on her own? You’re about to find out with “Slabtown.”

As usual, we’re going to take a stroll through Spoiler Town, so if you haven’t watched the episode yet, you may want to cool your jets for a while.

Watch This Fun, Blood-Soaked Short Inspired By Dead Rising 3

fb share tweet share

Just because Halloween has come and gone, it doesn’t mean that we’re going to forget about the creepy, horrific side of things. If you’re having zombie withdrawals and just can’t wait it out until later tonight when The Walking Dead hits the airwaves, we’ve got something that just might carry you through. Inspired by the videogame Dead Rising 3, this short movie simply called Fear might be the gory fix you’re looking for.

There’s not really too much to this four-minute horror offering than a tooling up scene and some wholesale zombie slaughter, which may be enough to satisfy your bloodlust. Set three weeks after a zombie outbreak, a trio of friends, all unnamed, fight their way through the remnants of society. It appears you can keep the infection at bay, but they’re out of whatever meds they need to accomplish this—apparently called Zombrex—and they’re out looking for more.

Jane Austen Gets Badass In This First Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Pic

Pride and prejudice and zombiesIt’s been in the process of being adapted for so damn long that it was starting to feel like literary horror mash up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was never actually going to materialize. I know there’s been news and casting and reports of all varieties, but still, it just felt kind of out there in a vague way. But now, today, there’s honest to god photographic evidence that this is a real movie that’s going to happen.

This first photo from the Jane Austen adaptations (maybe augmented Jane Austen adaptation is a more accurate description) comes from EW, and shows off the core cast of the film. You’ve get a look at a quintet composed of Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse).

The Walking Dead: Watch The First Clip From Slabtown

fb share tweet share

Last night’s episode of The Walking Dead, “Four Walls and a Roof,” was absolutely brutal. Like game changing brutal. I won’t say anything more, but you can read all about it HERE if you’re so inclined. Thus far, the episodes in the young season 5 have been among the best in the series, and the writers and producers are striking a nice balance between grim and bleak and a more hopeful outlook, which is impressive given how dark the material has become. AMC released a preview of next week’s episode, “Slabtown,” as well as a handful of glimpses inside “Four Walls.”

One of the biggest threads left dangling at the end of season 4 was the disappearance of Beth (Emily Kinney). We saw that black car with the cross in the back window speed away, presumably with her inside, but aside from that, we knew little of her fate. Season 5 hasn’t really helped that much. Over the first three episodes we’ve gradually built towards that a bit, especially in last week’s “Strangers,” and we know Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride) saw the mystery mobile and took off after it.

The Walking Dead Post Game: Four Walls And A Roof Proves Pretty People Taste Best

fb share tweet share

As we approached the premiere of season 5 of The Walking Dead, AMC’s mega-popular zombie drama, my biggest question was whether or not they could maintain the progress and momentum created over the second half of season 4. By far the best run in the entire series, I wasn’t a huge fan of the season finale, but here we are, three episodes into the young season 5, and they not only kept it going, they’ve started building even more. The season started out with a tense, action heavy debut, and followed that up with a more introspective episode, which brings us to tonight’s installment, “Four Walls and a Roof. And this is the episode fans of the comics have been waiting for.

It should go without saying, don’t read this unless you’ve already watched the episode, or you just don’t give a damn, because we’re going wade through some deep ass spoilers.
