When he awakens he discovers that the world has been ravished by a zombie epidemic of apocalyptic proportions and that he seems to be the only person still alive. After returning home to discover his wife and son missing, he runs into survivors Morgan and his son; who teach him the ropes of the new world. He then heads for Atlanta to search for his family. Narrowly escaping death at the hands of the zombies on arrival in Atlanta he is aided by another survivor, Glenn who takes Rick to a camp outside the town. There Rick finds his wife Lori and his son, Carl, along with his partner/best friend Shane and a small group of survivors who struggle to fend off the zombie hordes; as well as competing with other surviving groups who are prepared to do whatever it takes to survive in this harsh new world. Now they must try to work together and protect themselves, from the dead, but... Written by Abdallah M. Saifan

AMC has another hit!
25 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to come into contact with a copy of the pilot episode of "The Walking Dead" and it is utterly amazing.

I tend to stray away from this genre of movies as nothing I have watched in the last 10 years has affected me in any way. The horror genre has gotten dull and boring. This show breaks all of those boundaries. I literally sat there in awe through the entire episode.

"The Walking Dead" is shot perfectly thanks to the director of "The Shawshank Redemption" and it shows. AMC has another hit on their hands with this one. The dialouge is on point.

I give it a 10 out of 10 because the 1 hour I watched of this show impressed me more than any other zombie movies put together.
