The Walking Dead has never been accused of being a happy show, but it’s one of the few series to be called “misery porn”—an exercise in watching characters face tragedy after tragedy until their eventual horrible deaths. I’ve never thought this was true... but having seen this Sunday’s mid-season premiere, I wonder if…
Five years ago, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was a runaway literary hit, with its gimmick of inserting the undead into Jane Austen winning lots of people over. Now at last, it’s a movie—in theaters today—and it has some entertaining moments here and there. It might be worth watching on DVD months from now, if you…
Be honest, when you’re watching a tv show like The Walking Dead or going through some zombie movies, you imagine how you’d act and what you’d do in a world full of zombies. But alas, you’re only in the real world and safe from the zombie apocalypse. Turns out zombie world isn’t that far away though! A jewel wasp…
A zombie virus may not be at the top of your list of likely apocalypses, but I think we can all agree that it would suck to get caught unprepared. Unfortunately, we are. As proven by countless movies, TV shows, and novels, society is woefully unready to deal with an infectious, flesh-eating horde.
The Apocalypse rules pop culture. Half the biggest literary novels these days are apocalyptic, and meanwhile The Walking Dead is a huge hit. Post-apocalyptic stories are what space opera was in the Space Age. But what are they about? Here are 10 types of apocalypses, and what they each signify.
I don’t think last night’s mid-season finale was the best episode of The Walking Dead, but if I had to give someone a single episode to show them why TWD is such a mega-hit, I would give them “Start to Finish.” It was a perfect mix of hope, despair, and a seemingly endless number of zombies.
It was a bold move for showrunner Scott M. Gimple to make the first half of season six into a single day, following a bunch of different characters both at Rick’s doomed Zombie Fun Run and back at Alexandria, which suffered its first major attack. I’d say it’s been mostly successful, but “Always Accountable” is the…
Everyone knows you’re better off avoiding large cities in the event of a zombie pandemic. But if you’re going to take the risk of living in a city anyway, which one has the best chance of making it through the apocalypse?
Two things, guys: 1) This was an especially brutal, infuriating episode of The Walking Dead, so consider this your extra-special spoiler warning (although if you haven’t been spoiled already, you soon will be); and 2), I’m beginning to think Rick’s plan to herd the zombies out of Undead Gorge wasn’t a very good plan…
A 20-year-old man was killed and five other people were injured just before midnight on Saturday at “ZombiCon,” an undead-themed art and music festival in Fort Myers, Florida. As of Sunday night, the shooter was still at large. The event is billed as Florida’s “largest gathering of zombies and those who love them.”
It sounds like a bizarre video game mashup, but farmers have reported “zombie” plants since the early 1600s: plants that took on a sickly yellow look and grew strange leaf-like structures or bushy growths instead of flowering and reproducing.
Hey, remember all that talk about how TWD would be putting more zombies on screen than ever before? They weren’t kidding.

Here’s your heartwarming story of the day: 7 year old Spencer Holt was deputized by the Pasco County Sheriff’s department to fend off a zombie horde in their jail cells.
The Walking Dead is probably one of the goriest and grossest shows on television because all they do is kill zombies. And though zombies are not real (yet, at least), the blood and gore look real because of all the amazing special effects on the show. Here’s a reel from Stargate Studios showing their best work of VFX…
Zombie lovers were welcomed with open arms (covered with open, rotting sores) at Comic-Con, where TV’s undeadliest shows pulled out all the stops for their fans with elaborate, interactive, in-your-face experiences. Here are the coolest zombie installations we sat at Comic-Con.
It’s a lesson many people (and zombies) have learned the hard way—do not mess with Rick Grimes. But if you thought Rick taking charge of the Alexandria Safe Zone was somehow going to put an end to the group’s troubles, this lengthy, brutal Comic-Con trailer for season 6 will make you think again.
Since we’re all pretty much obsessed with the zombie apocalypse at this point, I guess it was only a matter of time before people started zombie-pranking each other.
Everyone had that favorite, heavy, feather-stuffed pillow that was their not-so-secret weapon during a sleepover battle. But a pillow doesn't come anywhere near being as awesome as Factory Entertainment's new line of Zombie-battling stuffed toys that includes what could be the world's first plush chainsaw.
