The first season of The Walking Dead was a masterpiece in television drama, full of ideas both in front of the camera and behind it that created six episodes of high-quality entertainment. With fantastic in-camera prosthetics and visual effects, the original team behind the show even thought to shoot on the more expensive film, rather than with digital cameras, as film footage would be much more likely to survive an apocalypse. The team clearly cared about the details.
Horror movies are probably the most underrated genre in the movie industry. It's easy to write them off as campy or over the top, but there is plenty of artistry that goes into the genre. There is a multitude of different types of horror movies. Some deal with the supernatural, with mythical creatures that come to life. Others are psychological thrillers and are creepy in the way they mess with your mind. My particularly favorite sub genre of horror is the slasher film. They involve violence, mutilation, and lots and lots of blood. Some of these films are downright disturbing in terms of what they show on screen. The following films are not meant for young audiences, and they are just about the bloodiest horror movies out there.
Even though we've seen the scenario played out in the movies and on TV, what would you, or rather, should you do in an honest-to-goodness zombie apocalypse situation? First of all, can this actually happen? Will there be some nasty virus that makes us long for the taste of brains? Or is religion playing a cruel game by warning us that once Hell’s full, the dead will walk the Earth? No one really knows for sure, and that's what makes it so goddamn terrifying!

Be honest, you've got a zombie survival plan.
From Mary Shelley’s famous 1818 novel Frankenstein to the 2013 film World War Z, zombies have been a huge part of our culture ever since the term was first believed to have become part of the English language about 200 years ago. Thought to originate from West African culture, the undead have come to be popularised over the years in films like George A. Romero's 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead when they became the flesh-eating thing of nightmares.
It might start out in a lab with infected animals or a sick passenger on an airplane. Flash forward to months later and we see evidence that civilization has collapsed and that the remaining survivors are trying to scrape together some semblance of a functioning society.
Like most fans I was drawn in from the very beginning. I couldn't wait to get home and watch The Walking Dead every Sunday night. I could sit back and immediately I was immersed into the show. It was bad enough having to wait for the show to come back during the mid season breaks. I was hooked. Zombies and The Survival Story of those left behind really got watchers interested. The show became bigger than it had ever anticipated. Since the writers decided to change things up and the story then took quite a turn which varied differently from the comics its no wonder The Walking Dead has suffered fan loss and a decrease in ratings as of late. In the beginning the love triangle between Rick, Lori and Shane kept us watching. Almost keeping it going a little too far. Just enough to see Shane turn at the end on his best friend Rick. We have seen and mourned the loss of great characters Dale, Andrea, The Governor, Shane, Beth, Merle Dixon, Bob, Hershel, Lori, T-Dog, Noah, Jim and many more. The zombies were the perfect mix of blood, fright, and scare. Everybody wanted it to match up to the comics as well as keep a real sense of what would actually happen in the event of a real Zombie Apocalypse. The actors definitely made the show impact of what it is today and of course who cannot forget the oozing pile of goo flesh and guts. The Walking Dead hands down was one of the greatest shows of its time. Creating the series Fear the Walking Dead AMC, Conventions to meet the cast. Contests and Merch. Where you could win your very own Walking Dead Survivor Vehicle. We made it through Hershel's ranch, The Governor's Illusion of Woodbury, The Prison all the way back on the road again. To completely starting over in Alexandria. We have seen the transformation of many characters Carl, Rick, Michonne, Daryl Dixon, Glen, Maggie, Carol plus more. The show struck us somewhere that a lot of shows dare to reach. Not many compare. So what went wrong. After the episode aired with Glen and Abraham being slaughtered by Negan. I think that was a pivotal point. A lot of negative ratings and a lot of people were upset by that particular episode. It changed viewers opinions very fast. It also changed how people saw and felt the show. You either were a bigger fan than before or you completely lost interest. You can tell that the direction the show was taking was not like it was before. The last season was displeasing to say the least. I know they are keeping the show going but you can only keep the show going for so long before people lose interest and the ratings drop. Sooner or later The Walking Dead will be a thing of the past but remembered in our hearts as one of the most awesome shows to ever have existed.
Zombies ate my neighbors and are everywhere. So much so, that all I could think was "When will we be done with all this?" as The Walking Dead commercials ran incessantly. But I was told that it held great thought provoking science fiction currency so I decided to take a look after several years on the sidelines.
First off, let me tell you that if you are here trying to find a magic formula to raise money using Kickstarter, Indiegogo or any other Crowdfunding platform, this is not the place for you. What you will find here is what I did wrong and what I’m doing on my next campaign for my second feature film which is the sequel to “The Garden’s Keeper”.
