Monster Monday: The Walking Dead

Happy Monster Monday, fiends! As you probably know, The Walking Dead returns on Sunday. I have kind of a love-hate relationship with the show, but I watch it (and Talking Dead) religiously. Even when I'm feeling the hate – Glenn fell with his head away from the dumpster, not toward it! – I still love … Continue reading Monster Monday: The Walking Dead

Most of the headlines I see from mainstream outlets are memorializing him … Continue reading Romero Week — The Crazies

I had a fun Monster Monday planned for tomorrow based on a movie I watched last night, but in light of this news I don't think it would be appropriate … Continue reading Programming Note: Remembering Romero
