I rented season 1 DVD of "Walking Dead," an AMC channel series about zombies (NOTLD plot: dead start coming back to life walking the earth, etc.). Really impressed. I've seen my fair share of zombie flicks and really I think this is the best in the genre I've seen since the original Night of the Living Dead. The zombies are truly scary and horrifying, excellent acting, pacing, and direction. Makes Romero's last couple zombie attempts look very amateurish by comparison. One of the producers on Walking Dead is Gale Anne Hurd, from the Alien franchise.
