The Walking Dead Ratings Drop to Six-Year Low

Published

on

Well, this isn’t good.

Turns out that AMC’s hit zombie series “The Walking Dead” has hit a ratings low with the release of it’s newest episode “The Big Scary U”. A rating drop the likes of which the series hasn’t seen since the dog days of season 2.

Personally, season 2 was when I ditched the series and never looked back. I’ve heard a lot over the years that the series improved greatly moving on from the disastrousrious second season, but I’m all good.

I have shows like “Stranger Things” (review), “Mindhunter”(review), and “AHS: Cult” (review) to keep me company.

For full breakdown on the recent rating drop with a bunch of stats involving demographics and whatnot, you can check out Deadline‘s article on the matter.

Everyone else I guess can just keep moving on with their lives.

Do you still watch “The Walking Dead”? Should I give the series another shot? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social media!

The Walking Dead Season 8 is currently airing on AMC.

Season 8 synopsis:

Last season, Rick Grimes and his group of survivors were confronted with their deadliest challenge yet. With the comfort of Alexandria, they let their guard down, only to be reminded how brutal the world they live in can be.

Feeling powerless under Negan’s rules and demands, Rick advocated the group play along. But seeing that Negan couldn’t be reasoned with, Rick began rallying together other communities affected by the Saviors. And with the support of the Hilltop and Kingdom, they finally have enough fire power to contest the Saviors.

This season, Rick brings “All Out War” to Negan and his forces. The Saviors are larger, better-equipped, and ruthless — but Rick and the unified communities are fighting for the promise of a brighter future. The battle lines are drawn as they launch into a kinetic, action-packed offensive.

Up until now, survival has been the focus of Rick and our group, but it’s not enough. They have to fight to take back their freedom so that they can live. So that they can rebuild. As with any battle, there will be losses. Casualties. But with Rick leading the Alexandrian forces, Maggie leading the Hilltop, and King Ezekiel leading the Kingdom — Negan and the Saviors’ grip on this world may finally be coming to an end.

Inoperable starring Danielle Harris Gets New Poster and Limited December Release Date

Published

on

Last year we here at Dread Central premiered the trailer for the upcoming Danielle Harris hospital horror flick Inoperable from director Christopher Lawrence Chapman.

Today we have the film’s all-new poster and news that the film will finally be hitting select theaters on December 1st.

I just watched the trailer again myself and I have to say I am really looking forward to the film. I dig the location, the hurricane aspect, the psychological horror of the situation and the whole she-bang.

Count me to check out the film as soon as it hits Blu-ray and/or VOD (hopefully) within the new year. We’ll let you know when we hear more.

What do you think of the trailer and new poster for Inoperable? Let us know below!

The film is directed by Christopher Lawrence Chapman from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jeff Miller. The film stars Danielle Harris, Katie Keene, and Isabella Sofia Menna.

Robert Kurtzman’s Creature Corps handled the film’s makeup effects, with David Henson Greathouse (Syfy’s “FaceOff”) supervising, and he, Barry Aslinger, and Beki Ingram handling the bulk of the effects. Philip Jessen is unit production manager, Ashley Eberbach is first assistant director, and Bobby Marinelli is production designer.

Inoperable hits select theaters December 1st.

Synopsis:

A young woman wakes up in a seemingly evacuated hospital with a hurricane approaching. She realizes the storm has awakened malevolent forces, trapping her in a time loop. She must escape the hospital before the storm passes or she will be trapped in its halls forever.
