Big Walking Dead (TV) news! We have a premiere date (October 31) and a trailer (the same one shown at Comic Con, but not shitty/bootlegged now). See it embedded below and prepare for the awesome. The initial episode will run 90 minutes, with the other five clocking in at 60. (AMCTV)

In other Walking Dead (TV) news, Frank Darabont talks to MTV about Andrew Lincoln and has some good things to say. (MTV Splash Page)

And Walking Dead (TV) producer Gale Ann Hurd has a few tidbits for us, too, about why the zombie zeitgeist, whether the show will outpace the comic and what kind of departures there will be. (SFX)

What does the guy who supervised the visual effects on Resident Evil: Afterlife have to say about the film? Find out! (Fangoria)

The FEARnet series Zombie Roadkill, about a cursed stretch of road where zombie animals reanimate, is starting October 4. There’s a picture of lead Thomas Haden Church, too. (Dread Central)

The Oklahoma Horror Film Festival will show over fifty movies (fourteen features and lots of shorts) over three days from September 3-5 in Tulsa. Zombie fans will appreciate the inclusion of a handful of zombie/zombie-like films including George’s Intervention, Shellter and The Prometheus Project. (28 Days Later Analysis)

    I know what I’m doing on Halloween! 90 minutes, heh, that’s longer than most zombie movies.

    Perfect. Sorry kids, this house will watching Walking Dead while eating Halloween candy that I should be passing out. So exciting.

  3. That interview on Fangoria was good. I like that the visual effects were done by a Canadian and I think this film will be the best of the bunch.
