#SDCC14: Everything You Need to Know About The Walking Dead Panel Including the Season 5 Trailer



Post Thumb:


#SDCC14: Everything You Need to Know About The Walking Dead Panel We’re reporting live on the floor from AMC’s “The Walking Dead” panel, and we’ve got some goodies to pass along, from the direction of the upcoming season to the impending Blu-ray release of Season 4.

Chris Hardwick introduced showrunner Scott Gimple along with Robert Kirkman, Gale Ann Hurd, Greg Nicotero, Andrew Lincoln, Steven Yuen, Michael Cudlitz, Danai Gurira, Lauren Cohan, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman, and Emily Kinney to a roomful of rabid fans.

When asked if our heroes would ever leave the train car, the panel showed a mock sitcom-style clip of Rick, Glenn, and Maggie sitting inside the train car in old age makeup, playing card games and eating the leftovers of Carl. The scene ended with Rick saying, “I can’t keep eating my kid,” followed by a bald-headed Daryl pulling a Colonel Kurtz and screaming, “The horror! The horror!”

Robert Kirkman confirmed that this season will offer “many moments from the comic that fans have been waiting for.”

The Season 4 Blu-ray will feature the unaltered line of Rick dropping the f-bomb during his final season-ending line.

The Season 5 promo shows Rick and his gang being held over a trough and pleading for their lives. The group is forced to join the Terminus people on a quest to reach Washington, DC. There’s much distrust and fighting between Rick and the leader of Terminus. The footage showed lots of clips of Rick kicking ass, a fight with zombies in a flooded basement, a massive explosion with hundreds of zombies flying. Very action-oriented. The footage ends with clips from a subplot involving a still-alive Beth, who is being held captive by an insane policewoman.

And as always, we learned the premiere date: Season 5 kicks off Sunday, October 12th, at 9PM, on AMC, followed once again by “Talking Dead.”

Michael C. Hall Buried in Stephen King’s Pet Sematary



Now here’s an audio book we can REALLY get behind! Entertainment Weekly is reporting that former “Dexter” star Michael C. Hall will be narrating the first ever unabridged recording of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. Sometime’s audio is better!

Readers have been asking for this audiobook for a very long time,” Stephen King said in a statement. “I know the listening experience will be worth the wait with Michael as narrator.

We’re thrilled to finally bring Pet Sematary to King’s audiobook fans,” Simon & Schuster Audio president and publisher Chris Lynch added. “Michael C. Hall is a perfect match for this timeless story, which has long deserved an unabridged production.

The unabridged audiobook of Pet Sematary will be released by Simon & Schuster Audio on March 27. Speaking of Hall… you know he would make a pretty friggin’ good casting choice to play Victor Pascow in the upcoming Pet Sematary remake. Just sayin’.

Saw-inspired Game Play With Me Sets a Trap on Steam



Saw fans have a lot to be happy about right now. In addition to Jigsaw being teased for Dead by Daylight, a new Saw-themed game called Play With Me has launched on Steam, and although it’s not officially connected with the franchise in any way, developer Airem promised that they created a videogame which looks and plays as though it were made by Jigsaw himself. As you can tell from the trailer and screenshots, the production values and overall quality of Play With Me appear to be considerably higher than most other indie horror games released on Steam, and you’ll probably be very happy to see that Airem took the time and effort to create stylized hand drawn environments rather than using purchased assets from the Unity Store.

The killer behind the sinister traps in Play With Me is known as the Illusion, with the player taking control of investigative journalist Robert Hawk as he tries to fight his way through a series of sick and twisted obstacles created by the lunatic. The voice acting in the trailer was a little cheesy, although we see at 1:09 that the player will be tasked with using a kitchen knife to cut open a dead body (presumably to retrieve an item hidden in the cadaver’s stomach), which is not an image you’ll be forgetting anytime soon.

IQ Publishing are offering a 15% discount off Play With Me for those who purchase the game before January 24, so Saw fans might want to mark that deadline in their calendars and purchase it from Steam before the time is up. After all, it can’t be worse than Konami’s awful official Saw videogames.
