The Walking Dead (UK Premiere Date)

It has been a while since I’ve posted anything and with Halloween approaching I suppose I should post up info on The Walking Dead.

The UK Premiere Date has been announced – 5th November on the FX channel, a week after the US. I suppose I’ll have to avoid the internet for that week, so you’re going to be free from my wittering. While the graphic novel didn’t set my world alight art-wise, as a long time zombie film fan I am quite excited by the trailer I have seen.

Directed, written and produced by Frank Darabont (The Mist, The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile) and featuring some great special effects and make-up work from Gregory Nicotero who has worked on so many films including the underrated Diary of the Dead and The Mist, these six episodes will be most horror fan’s Friday night staple. You can find out more from the website.

As a UK viewer, it’s funny seeing Andrew Lincoln (who I know from more light-hearted roles) take part in this gory horror television event. I can’t wait to see some zombie heads get the shotgun treatment.
