Opening Today: “Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse”

Considering how furious the world’s geek viewership was with the dispatching of one of the characters on this past weeks “The Walking Dead”, I figured that this film will offer up some much needed levity and how could it not with a title like “Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse”. This horror comedy opens today in theaters everywhere. Check out the poster, premise and cast and then we can discuss.

Official Comic Con Trailer: “Fear the Walking Dead”

I’ve been getting a lot of trailers and videos out this week since I’ve been on a bit of a holiday with family so they’ve been coming at you when I could get the cleanest visual from the main sources and now its time to share one of the most anticipated sneak peaks of them all – The official world premiere of AMC Network’s “Fear The Walking Dead”. The show is a prequel to the grim despair of a world we are finding week after week on “The Walking Dead” and well, let’s just watch the clip.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As you can see the series shows us the events that happened around the beginning of the outbreak of whatever it was that caused the dead to rise and seek out the living for food. This is the kind of prequel that we needed for the mythology right now and it sure looks intense as the world around us grapples with the mystery of what is happening to the people around them and why bullets don’t seem to stop them from coming. Oh come on, you don’t think that folks knew the walkers needed a bullet to the head to stop them way back in the beginning did you? Anyway, I am setting my DVR to record this for its first episode on August 23rd when it begins airing on the AMC channel. That’s a little over a month away my friends so start practicing your Facebook abstinence now because you know there are folks in your feed that just cannot wait to ruin the transpiring events only seconds after it ends out there.

Airing Tonight: “The Walking Dead” Season 5.5 (2/8/15)

You’ve waited patiently and developed severe levels of anxiety after the mid-season finale of “The Walking Dead” with its nothing less than a “HOLY SH*T” moment at the climax and if you have not yet seen that for some strange reason, be happy that I am not willing to spoil it for you. Now the waiting is over and the hit series returns to give us the rest of Season Five, check out the poster below. I like the premise “The New Worlds Gonna Need Rick Grimes”. That sounds ominous to me. Do you agree?
