The Walking Dead S05 E05: Self Help

abraham-the-walking-dead-self-help-trailer-hints-at-something-rotten-in-dc

Holy Looney Tunes! I’ve always felt that Team Rick’s biggest threats were not so much the walkers, but their fellow survivors. I was right. On last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead,” we learn Beth’s location and that Beth is stuck between a mad doctor and bad cop, but luckily for her Carol has arrived via stretcher. Is there a cure for this apocalypse? Only Eugene knows for sure… or does he? Read the rest of this entry

Bob’s dead, Glenn and Maggie have joined Sgt. Abraham’s team, Gareth and his cannibals were chopped and diced by Rick’s team, but on last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead,” Daryl had someone hidden in the bushes. Who is it? Where the hell is Carol and, who has Beth? Hang onto your IV tubing and follow me. Read the rest of this entry

On last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead,” we met with Pastor Gabriel, Church Lady Walker and her Wet and Wild zombie brigade, but we’re still left with a lot of unanswered questions, like: what’s Gabriel’s secret; is Beth alive; can Eugene really save the world, and will Gareth have another barbeque? If you go, bring dessert. Read the rest of this entry

The Walking Dead S05 E02: Strangers

Played like the second half of a Super Bowl game, last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead” showed how Team Cattle royally kicked Team Butcher’s butt, and we can thank Carol aka Wonder Woman for that victory. Now if we can only have Carol dispose of ISIS. Carol could do this with one arm tied behind her back. On the run again, Team Rick needs to find supplies, but will it be worth the risk?

The Walking Dead S05 E01: No Sanctuary

The Walking Dead Season 5 Comic Con Trailer 006

When we last met on “The Walking Dead,” Team Rick and his group were searching for sanctuary. What they got was a nightmare named Mary and Gareth. Rick and the gang are locked up in a cattle car and their combined asses are on the line; the food line that is, if the people of Terminus have their way. Who will save them?

31 Days of Horror 2014 – Mimesis

mim1

We’re all genre fans here. We’ve all been to a comic, movie, scifi, or horror convention and run into roleplayers and cosplayers that just take things a bit too seriously. And then there are the ones who take it too far, enough to creep us out a little. That’s who inspired Douglas Schulze’s Mimesis. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on this bizarre and frightening revision and reenactment of Night of the Living Dead.

31 Days Of Horror 2014 – The Battery (2013)

Confession time. The last few second of The Walking Dead have just not been doing anything for me. I find the show slow and plodding, at least the first part of the fourth seasons, which I’ve slowly been making my way through thanks to the fine folks at Anchor Bay. Here’s the thing – long before the onslaught of zombie films, I loved the genre (like so many horror fans, of course). So while I’m glad that the mainstream has caught up with the rest of us, the show is not delivering what I want, it just seems very same Ole, same old.

Unlike The Battery, a great new film, also distributed by Anchor Bay, written and directed by Jeremy Gardner and staring the director and Adam Cronheim (also a producer on the film).

Life and Death with Archie

archie1

This past week Life with Archie #36 came out, and if you’ve been paying attention to various news outlets, and the comics press for the last few months, you know it’s the death of Archie Andrews. But that’s not the end of it, it’s not even the tip of the iceberg. We’ll get a bit of background, and learn all about life and death with Archie, after the jump.
