We hope you've had your shots, because fandom is once again preparing to be infected by AMC's The Walking Dead with an explosive eighth season. While we may be in a cooling off period between seasons, fans of the undead ensemble are preparing to chow down on another season of mayhem and massacre.
On the latest episode of The Walking Dead, Dwight (Austin Amelio) made his return after being absent for the past two episodes. When we see him, he's locked up in Alexandria's prison and attempting to persuade Rick that he wants to help stop Negan. The episode closes shortly afterward. Dwight's scene gives us the evidence we need to confirm that he'll embody his comic counterpart in the season finale and beyond. And from the looks of next week's promo, Dwight has returned to Negan's side, but as an infiltrator working for Rick Grimes.
From stubbing your toe to dropping your phone down the toilet, there are a few awful situations in life when the use of colorful language should be excused for anyone and everyone. Certainly, amidst the rotting corpses and deranged villains of a zombie apocalypse, you can probably forgive the survivors of AMC's #TheWalkingDead for dropping the odd F-bomb to let off steam.
It sounds like there will be some dead men walking the mile when AMC once again soars up the network ratings with The Walking Dead. After leaving Season 7 of the zombie apocalypse for dust back in April, Dead-heads have been on the edge of their seats for the return of #ScottGimple's shuffling showstopper and a very special milestone. With less than a month to go, and as everyone prepares to celebrate 100 episodes of #TheWalkingDead, AMC has released the season premiere title and a rather sparse synopsis.
Since Robert Kirkman first put bloody pen to paper in 2003, we have seen The Walking Dead move from comic book, to television, to video games, and it seems that there is no stopping his world in any medium. However, in the murky depths of Kirkman's mind, can he ever see his various franchises coming together under one roof for the ultimate episode of #TheWalkingDead?
For those of us who watched the latest episode of The Walking Dead, "New Best Friends," we know the show is keeping up the momentum established in its mid-season premiere. While the first half of Season 7 seemed like a slow draw, the pace is beginning to pick up in its second half. Along with making this half of Season 7 much more entertaining, there were also a few moments in Episode 9 that'll have lasting repercussions on the remaining episodes in Season 7.
With AMC's The Walking Dead dragging its rotten corpse to its biggest and bloodiest season ever, fans can rejoice that there will be more murder, mayhem, and mysteries than ever before in Season 8. However, it is best that some questions be left unanswered, such as: Why is Rick Grimes the sweatiest man in the apocalypse? Who is the big spoon out of Negan and Lucille, and does Carl have to keep his eye-hole moistened?
Casting your mind back to October 2016, AMC's The Walking Dead resolved one of the biggest cliffhangers to grace modern television. In this era of Who Shot Mr. Burns?, why the cast of Lost needed to go back, and is Jon Snow really dead?, #TheWalkingDead kept us guessing for a whole summer about whose brains Negan bashed in with a wire-wrapped baseball bat.
With FX's American Horror Story flying the star-spangled banner high over the White House for Season 7, recent events have caused the network to readdress the rest of the season. #RyanMurphy's horror anthology had always been close to the bone, but the October 10 episode has had to undergo some major edits following the recent Las Vegas shooting.
If you've sharpened your machete in preparation for another sexy teen slaughter, get ready for dive into development hell for the Friday the 13th movie that never was. Heading back to the noughties, were there any horror franchises that weren't at least teased a gritty remake? From Halloween to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, House of Wax to A Nightmare on Elm Street, pretty much every boogeyman was dug up for another trip to the big screen. However, while Freddy Krueger should've stayed "Fred" and buried, 2009's #Fridaythe13th remake faired better than most.
