AMC Beauty Tips from The Walking Dead

AMC has released another behind-the-scenes featurette from The Walking Dead, this time examining the fascinating work that went into creating the make-up effects for the first zombie that will appear on the show. What’s so great about this clip is the old-school make-up work that is being done on the series. The classic techniques on display above would be just as home on an 1983 episode of Standby: Lights, Camera, Action as they are here.Topless Robot – Beauty Tips from the Walking Dead.

The Least Practical, Most Awesome Zombie Weapon Ever

Topless Robot – The Least Practical, Most Awesome Zombie Weapon Ever.

So if any of you were wondering what to pick up for my bday. THIS! And form of this would be the best present, ok pretty close to a years membership to Craft Beer of the Month Club (thx family!) but awesome none the less. Here’s the OG post from Unreality.com The link is to Topless Robot, a great Nerd Blog.

It’s the greatest weapon possibly ever conceived, the RPC, or Rocket Propelled Chainsaw.  Yes, it is EXACTLY what it sounds like, and provided you have an unlimited amount of chainsaws, you’ll be the zombie killing champion of the post-apocalyptic world.

I’m frankly surprised such a device hasn’t shown up in a game or a movie yet, but there’s still hope for Dead Rising 3, which literally attaches chainsaws to everything you could possibly imagine. I’m pretty sure the protagonist of that game will literally have chainsaws for arms, legs and a head, with a secret compartment in his chest…for another chainsaw.

Part Two of Quint’s day on the set of THE WALKING DEAD!

A few days ago I posted on Quint’s day on the set of AMC’s upcoming series The Walking Dead. This was a two part post and he is back with the rest of the day and some more photos. After reading this, I have very high hopes for The Walking Dead. It seems that the people making this are very into it. And the writer has a lot of influence over what happens with the story. Nothing I hate worse then a great book, or comic and someone decides that they know better then the author. Normally if it was popular enough to become a movie/tv series then the book/comic had something going. Don’t fuck up a good thing!!

Sorry had to vent there a little. And now the link to rest of the story. Here!

More Walking Dead Photos

Bracken over at The Horror Geek posted this some time ago. I haven’t kept up with the blog as much as I would have liked. So here is some more stuff to fill your zombie needs!

Sorry for the long delay between posts — I’ve been doing a lot of stuff over at Horror Squad (and if you’re not checking me out there, you should be — it’s extra content) and I’ve not had a bunch of free time. I’m back today though, with more Walking Dead goodness.

Pictured above is the first production photo from AMC’s new series — based on Robert Kirkman’s comic set after the zombie apocalypse. Greg Nicotero of the mighty KNB Effects did the zombie design and it looks amazing. Director Frank Darabont concurs, saying “Greg Nicotero is absolutely out-doing himself. The work he is doing is beyond what one could hope for. Our Zombies kick ass!”

The series is set to debut on AMC later this year.

First Look Behind the Scenes of AMC’s The Walking Dead

Good old Mike Bracken made a post earlier today about AMC’s behind the scenes look of “The Walking Dead”. Due to come out this October, they are filming now in Atlanta, GA. Check out Mike’s post here at The Horror Geek.

A director that’s always wanted to do Zombies, and pays homage to Romero. So far this thing can’t go wrong. But like all things that are really awesome in one medium can’t always be expressed in another. So with fingers crossed among other things, I can’t hardly wait til October to get here to see. But enough talk, check out the video Here!!

Armadeaddon: Dark Genesis

I roll 20's!

Armadeaddon: Dark Genesis This isn’t new by any means, just a great zombie web comic series from Penny Arcade. I would say its one of the sources of inspiration that made me want to make a graphic novel. It’s nine pages long, just hit the next button to keep reading. Enjoy
