But What About “The Walking Dead”?

Why was “The Walking Dead” not mentioned in the last post?  Well, because I could not mention every zombie book or film or show in any single post.  TWD is a great show, good characters and acting and is an instant cult classic.  Zombies in the show are treated as an environmental antagonist, much like the cold in movies that take place in the tundra.  Environmental antagonists are a character in their own right and offer up issues of their own on top of everything else the characters have to deal with.

Because of this, while there are individual scenes that are scare-worthy, the show itself is not that scary overall.  And now, with all the main characters from the prison group torn asunder and left to their own devices, we get to see more character development, with zombies in the background.

I like TWD.  I watch it regularly.  It is not, however, my favorite adaptation of zombies in film.
