The Walking Dead: A Horror Tale of the Zombie Apocalypse

The Walking Dead: A Horror Tale of the Zombie Apocalypse

The Walking Dead is new television series that begins on AMC Sunday night, and it promises to be one of the most vivid examples of the revival of gruesome zombie movies.  The series is based on Robert Kirkman’s popular graphic novels, and the television adaptation is surprisingly frightening and remarkably good.  It visually echoes the stylized comic-book aesthetic of the original and combines elegant suspense with gratifyingly crude and slasher-film gore.  The Walking Dead is teeming with carnage and oozing close-ups of cannibalism, so it’s obviously not for everyone.  But it’s very well made, a hard-core zombie story that even vampire lovers can watch.
