AMC Releases Trailer for “The Walking Dead”, Zombie Fan Heads Explode
August 24, 2010
(ChattahBox) – I am a huge zombie fan. I even have my own little site dedicated to my obsession, or at least in part (shameless plug here). So, I have been very eager to see the trailer that was originally released at Comic-Con this year for AMC’s new zombie series. Now it has been, and I couldn’t be happier.
“The Walking Dead” is the a story of a sheriff who is wounded in a gun fight, and wakes up in the hospital via “28 Days Later”….basically, the world has gone to Hell, and he doesn’t know why. After learning that his wife and son are missing, and the town is deserted, he finds a man and his son that explain that a virus created an outbreak outbreak of zombie scum that passed through the country.
Littered with convincing looking zombies that seem to follow the traditional “slow movers” format, we get to see the sheriff literally ride out on the steed to battle the forces of the dead, and find his family.
It sounds cheesy, I know, and maybe a little outdated. But the trailer, which you can see below, is utterly amazing, and it promises to be a hell of a show.
AMC will be airing the series on Halloween, so check your local listings!
