Horror has been pretty good to AMC. In 2010 they premiered The Walking Dead, one of he biggest shows on television, cable or otherwise (despite how atrociously they apparently treated Frank Darabont). Later came the spin-off, Fear The Walking Dead, which hasn’t been a laggard in the ratings department, either. That they’re sticking with the genre that […]
There’s a new trailer for the upcoming season of AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” the last with showrunner Glen Mazzara (who on some level I blame for Frank Darabont, the showrunner before him, leaving the show, despite the fact that I should know better). I remain a fan of the series–after all, they haven’t got rid […]
I recently read, via the ever reliable Deadline, that “The Walking Dead” has a new showrunner, someone by the name of Scott Gimple. I don’t mean to disparage Gimple, after all, he may be an awesome showrunner, but it seems to me that if he does the least thing that runs afoul of AMC brass […]

In my defense, if you’re in the desert and the only potable water you have is a bit murky and smelly, I suspect that you’ll drink deep […]
Sometimes it’s difficult to be a horror fan because, to paraphrase Rodney Dangerfield: “We don’t get no respect.” I don’t know what what other conclusion to reach when studios are turning out drivel like “Hellraiser: Revelations.” We want nuance. We want character development. We want pathos. And sure, we want some gore and violence accompanying […]
According to Vulture, Frank Darabont’s “L.A. Noir” has cast Milo Ventimiglia as the lead. That being said, they still want Jon Bernthal for another role, which isn’t great news for “The Walking Dead” because Frank Darabont is known to really like working with Bernthal.
Yesterday’s return of “The Walking Dead” to AMC made cable ratings history, earning more than 7 million viewers. That being said, I am a bit torn. While I am glad to hear of it’s success–Heck, any show with zombies on a consistent basis I am glad to know is successful–though I still can’t quite get […]
