Bad Robot has just hired a director to film a movie called Overlord, which is about American soldiers fighting Nazi zombies in World War II.
You probably know viruses as the demons behind your nasty cold, the not-quite-living monsters that infiltrate cells and plug in their own genetic material. But the horrible little buggers might have been crucial to forming the cells in our own bodies today.
The Girl With All The Gifts is a critically acclaimed 2014 novel, turned into a celebrated movie, which hits U.S. theaters next month. It tells a new type of zombie story, about kids, compassion, disease and acceptance. Author M.R. Carey has written a sequel, and io9 is very excited to bring you the first except from…
Drew Barrymore has a new show coming to Netflix on February 3 called Santa Clarita Diet. Exactly what type of diet that title refers to had previous been a mystery. Now we know it refers to human flesh.
One of the best zombie movies to come out in years is finally coming to the U.S. later this month, and we want to make sure you don’t miss it. It’s called The Girl With All The Gifts, and it’s got a new trailer.
Back in 1998, Capcom hired George A. Romero to direct a Japanese commercial for Resident Evil 2. The results were so impressive that Sony wanted to hire the zombie-movie pioneer to direct a big-screen adaptation of the hit video game. A logical pairing, yeah? Well, it didn’t quite work out that way.
If you’ve been as bored watching The Walking Dead twiddle its decomposing thumbs this season as I’ve been, then last night’s mid-season finale was probably equally satisfying to you. It was a pretty low-key episode—with a few violent exceptions—but one that finally got Rick out of his funk and put Alexandria and the…
When it comes to cool geek shit, Mads Mikkelsen has a stellar resume. He’s been an iconic serial killer, a James Bond villain, and played in the Marvel Universe—and soon, he’ll build the freaking Death Star. But there’s one genre he still really wants to get into.
If you’re invested in a TV series, it can be tough watching the protagonist making a decision you know to be dumb. If three protagonists all make a dumb decision—the same dumb decision—it can be agonizing. Last night’s episode features three of our “heroes” all enacting doomed, stupid plans. And despite it being yet…
Actually, I know what they’re doing, I just have no idea why they’re doing it. I don’t know who, when planning the aftermath of WhoDoesNeganKillGate, decided to spend a quarter of season seven dividing the main characters into four almost wholly separate groups, forget about telling a story for an interminable amount…
I really thought that after the brutal, annoying season premiere, the follow-up episode introducing the Kingdom, Ezekial, and his tiger would be the extent of the show’s absurdity. It turns out I was wrong. Absolutely, delightfully wrong.
The Walking Dead is as popular as ever in its seventh season on AMC, but showrunner Scott Gimple has his sights set on an even higher prize: an expansion to the big screen.
All things must come to an end, including human civilization. Whether it’s a superbug pandemic tomorrow or a supernova sun in billions of years, one day, somehow, the apocalypse will arrive. You and loved ones plan on being ready for it, and ready for what comes after.
Whether you loved “Service,” or hated it, or more likely felt somewhere in between, I believe there’s one thing we can all agree on, and that’s that this was yet another Walking Dead episode that absolutely, 100 percent did not need to be 90 minutes long.
Having spent last Sunday exploring the goofy magnificence of Ezekial’s Kingdom, The Walking Dead finally showed us Negan’s true compound, and what life is like under his rule through the eyes of two characters—Daryl, his prisoner/hostage, and Dwight, his scarred lieutenant… who’s a prisoner just as much as Daryl.
Whenever things get too dark on TWD—usually when a main character dies—the show likes to follow up with a light-hearted episode. Case in point: while last week’s episode was unbelievably brutal and horrific, last night’s “The Well” was easily the most delightful The Waking Dead has ever been. But there was a lot more…
Did you think that we were done with the “Who will Negan kill in The Walking Dead season premiere?” question just because the season premiere finally aired? Ha ha, nope! Because some very strange new footage has surfaced that indicates the show had someone else in mind to fall victim to Negan’s bat Lucille.
The Walking Dead had a major obstacle to overcome in last night’s season seven premiere. After leading up all of season six to the arrival of Negan and the promise of a main character’s death, the show decided to postpone the reveal of who died to season seven. Could the show possibly live up to its own hype and…
To paraphrase John Cleese, they’re not zombies, they’re walkers. And they are creeping all over AMC these days. The Walking Dead returns to the airwaves for its seventh season on Sunday, and today the network launched the first of a 16-part weekly web series tie-in to Fear the Walking Dead, subtitled Passage.
There aren’t a ton of truly great movies that feature zombies. The list is short but distinguished: the works of George Romero, Lucio Fulci, 28 Days Later, and a few others. But now we need to add The Girl With All the Gifts to the list. It’s the rare zombie film that innovates the genre with skill and excitement.
