The Walking Dead Reviews
What the critics are saying
- “Disgusting–but in a good way” –Verne Gay, Newsday
- “In the first half of director-screenwriter Frank Darabont’s impeccable pilot episode for AMC’s new adaptation, you feel the weight of time passing in ways that Kirkman always struggles with. To say that Darabont has kicked his series off with a bang would be a serious understatement.” Simon Abrams, Slant
