Day 31- Halloween

In the wee hours of Monday morning, after we all attended the wedding of our very own Machine, we were treated to the excellence that is Frank Darabont's zombie vision...

#100- The Walking Dead (TV/2010)

"Police officer Rick Grimes leads a group of survivors in a world overrun by zombies." The Walking Dead pulled a 3.3 rating, which makes it the new ruler of cable dramas. True Blood has never garnered more than a 2.2. What does this mean? People like zombies. A lot. This show was fantasmical. Wonderlicious. I could make up words all day, but you get the gist. Frank Darabont -the awesome writer and/or director behind such movies as The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, The Mist, The Blob (1988), ANOES 3, The Fly II, and The Majestic- brings us a weekly show about zombie apocalypse, and it is good. He loves horror, and apparently Stephen King, so we're in good hands. The first season (AMC has been rumored to have green lit a 2nd season already, but have yet to confirm) only has 6 episodes, but so what? 6 hours of episodic, (cable) network zombie bliss is a good thing, and we will take what we can get. You can see the time, effort, and money that went into this show. The zombies look phenomenal, the cast is great (especially the bad ass Lennie James... long live Jericho!), and it just feels right. Desolate. Creepy. Dangerous. We can't wait for more.

That's 100/100 movies watched so far... oh shit, were done! Now we can play catch up, and get back to normal...


  1. You did it again! And, as usual, I found one or two on here that I hadn't seen. I tried to d/l "Eyes of a Stranger" as well, but hit the wall at 97%.

    I just wanted to thank you guys for making it another special Halloween month--just like you, Halloween horror movie-watching starts in September and goes through November. I suppose it actually goes all year...

    Thanks guys!!!

  2. Jah, i liked this a lot especially covering themselves with zombie guts. A scarf of feet, i was chuckling away at that. The sheriff, (Andrew Lincoln) was in a tv comedy/drama series called Teachers which was filmed in Bristol (where i live). I was well surprised and happy to see him in this. He's good in it.

  3. Thanks Mob, we always have some mad love for you. And hell yes we watch horror all year, but I see what you mean.
