No seriously the moment I started to hear about the story line, I knew they blew the story away. It's unfortunate but not terribly surprising given the format of the novel. It would have been best displayed as a TV series since the book is comprised of various short stories recounting survival.

That's somewhat disappointing...

Crazay3557d ago

Yep. You ain't wrong about that dude. I was pretty hopeful it might be something awesome but these zombies run...and that's just not OK

RetrospectRealm3557d ago

Yeah, I'm a little worried now...

Run? More like sprint through a marathon all the way... I never been a fan of zombies on P.E.D's lol

Well, I hope it is a stellar zombie flick. I won't expect it to be like the book.

Really? The Walking Dead isn't that great.

CanadianTurtle3556d ago

Well, maybe not on it's own. But compared to anything else "zombie related," I'd say the Walking Dead is the best zombie fiction out there. (Tv show, not comic)

Walking Dead went down the crapper with season 3. 28 Days/Weeks Later to me is the best zombie related anything.

Night, Dawn and Day of the Dead for me. Then Shaun of the Dead.

Well....okay, So it wont be an adaptation?...
