How The Walking Dead Blew Up a Bridge Full of Zombies Without Actually Blowing Up a Real Bridge

Just a few weeks after it originally aired, Goodbye Kansas Studios has shared a behind-the-scenes video of its work on The Walking Dead episode “What Comes After,” where Rick, with some help from a pile of dynamite, blows up a bridge full of approaching zombies. Creating one of the series’ most complicated shots required extensive post-production work, but surprisingly, no actual bridges were harmed in the process. Read More >>

Something’s Very Wrong With Michonne on The Walking Dead

Well, here’s the good news: After last week’s troubling, backpedaling, post-Rick, post-timeskip “premiere,” The Walking Dead regained some of its footing tonight to produce a perfectly fine, if not particularly memorable episode. The bad news is that something’s wrong with Michonne, and it’s kind of a bummer. Read More >>

Real-Life ‘Zombie’ Animals Walk The Earth Thanks to Thousands of Parasites

Consider the ladybug. Our polka-dotted little friend spends its days munching aphids, climbing leaves, occasionally alighting upon a delighted child’s outstretched finger, and generally beetling around being adorable. It’s one of nature’s most inoffensive critters, which is perhaps why the Dinocampus coccinellae wasp is such a troubling one by comparison. See, in order to lay her egg, the mama Dinocampus must attack a ladybug with her stinger, and deposit an egg—and a virus—into her precious little abdomen. As the baby wasp grows, it sustains itself by eating the ladybug’s insides, until the virus—which has infected the host’s entire body—hits the brain and shuts down the central nervous system. This conveniently paralyses the ladybug while the larva erupts from her abdomen and spins itself into a cocoon. Read More >>

The Walking Dead’s Latest Episode Only Made a Single Mistake

Hoo boy. So last week, The Walking Dead had its lowest ratings ever. And mean, ever – below that even of season one, before it became a phenomenon. Compared to this disaster, Rick’s plans for a peaceful future are in pretty good shape! But that’s only because “completely falling apart” is still better than “presumed dead.” Read More >>

Rick and The Walking Dead Are Holding It Together…for Now

Two good episodes of The Walking Dead in a row is not an unheard of occurrence, but it is auspicious. “The Bridge” continues last week’s strong narrative start as Rick, Maggie, and the others try to keep everyone united into one community, but a few cracks are beginning to show – and the same can be said of the TV series, too.

The Walking Dead Gets the Fresh Start We’ve Been Waiting For

Were you sort of dreading the season nine premiere of The Walking Dead? I was. The series has had increasing problems since the beginning of the boring, interminable Savior War, and the show’s declining ratings back that up. But I’m surprised—and happy!—to report that the season nine premiere really feels like a new beginning, and damned if it didn’t make me excited for the show all over again…mostly. Read More >>

Short Film A Father’s Day Imagines a Gruesomely Sweet Zombie Family Reunion 

Most zombie tales are set just as the outbreak is happening, as desperate people — often families, as seen in recent films like Cargo and Train to Busan, but going all the way back to Night of the Living Dead — try to protect their loved ones. This short puts a refreshingly different perspective on the familiar. Read More >>

Florida City Has Been Accidentally Sending Out Zombie Alert Messages Since Hurricane Irma

No one should ever screw around on a public alert system. But considering it’s been a bad year for warning systems — from the Hawaii false emergency alert accidentally informing the public of an incoming missile that didn’t exist to the National Weather Service’s false tsunami warning to the Department of Justice’s Amber Alert site issues that redirected visitors to porn sites — now is an especially bad time for someone to be screwing around on an alert system.

The Walking Dead Didn’t Earn Its Season Finale in the Slightest

I don’t think I’ve ever watched a more self-satisfied, obnoxious episode of television in my life. But what’s even more obnoxious is that the season eight finale of The Walking Dead was still gratifying to me, too, if only because it looks like it finally got the AMC show back on the right track (...maybe).

Important Announcement: The Walking Dead Was Actually Fine Last Night

No, seriously. I know it may sound impossible after this deeply troubled second-half of season eight, but The Walking Dead pulled off an episode that had no major issues and was pretty compelling because it actually advanced a lot of storylines while also setting up some major stakes for the season finale. See, Walking Dead makers? It’s not that hard! Read More >>
