THE WALKING DEAD ON AMC!

The LIVING wearing the DEAD!!

I love watching zombie movies so when I heard about a series I had to watch it and let me tell you I haven't been disappointed. I like how The Walking Dead brings new elements to the table that have never been done before in any zombie film I've seen. For instance I like how the cast like to NOT use guns, the reason being that the noise draws out the Dead! Also I haven't ever seen the concept where the "Living" wear body parts of "The Dead" to walk around undetected!
