The Walking Dead: A Zombie Show with More Heart Than Brains

Andrew Lincoln, The Walking Dead

If you've seen any zombie film, the flesh-craving creatures of AMC's The Walking Dead aren't exactly novel.

That's not to say that makeup and special effects wizard Gregory Nicotero hasn't seriously outdone himself. Or that being caught on a city block surrounded by hundreds of soulless, hungry ghouls isn't terrifying. It's just that this story is about more than delivering a few scares.

AMC Brings Zombies to Primetime with the Harrowing and Grisly The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead

With its putrid zombie hoard, The Walking Dead is the ultimate Halloween gift for fans of gore: There are splattered heads, swarming flies and enough tattered, rotting flesh to make most watch through splayed fingers. But peel back just a thin layer of the decaying skin and you'll find the heart of AMC's newest drama is entirely human — racing 90 beats a minute, pumping furiously to stay alive. "There's us and the dead. We survive this by pulling together, not apart," says deputy sheriff Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln).

"It's a story that anyone can relate to," explains Robert Kirkman, author of the acclaimed comic-book series on which the show is based. "The zombies are representative of disaster, but the focus is on the people — everything they go through."

Rick Grimes is an Everyman with everything: a wife, a son... read more
