Top 13 Moments The Walking Dead Season 4

Top 13 Moments from The Walking Dead Season 4“The Walking Dead” continues its onslaught as one of the most amazing horror-themed television shows to ever hit the airwaves. Season 4 brought new characters, expanded some old favorites, evoked tears and cheers, and of course had its share of zombie action.

Tomorrow, August 26th, The Walking Dead Season 4 hits Blu-ray/DVD via Anchor Bay, and with that in mind we decided to look back at our favorite moments from this season. Characters coming and going, separation and reunion, death and new life… Season 4 brought us “The Walking Dead” like we’d never seen it before.

We’ve got our Top 13 here, but as always, we’ll start with some honorable mentions. Bob’s raging alcoholism leading to the complete destruction of the liquor store kicked off the action in Episode 1, and the discovery of David and Karen’s murdered and burned bodies was the first real mysterious firecracker Season 4 gave us.

In Episode 12, we finally find out just exactly what Daryl was before the zombie apocalypse. And his answer, basically that he was nothing, was as surprising as it was perfectly fitting. The mysterious feeder of the walkers/mutilator of animals was another interesting angle in Season 4.

Lastly, Daryl’s volatile time with the “Claim” Gang’ showed us just how ornery our crossbow-wielding hero can be!

And now, in the order they happened, our Top 13 Moments from “The Walking Dead” Season 4.

Top 13 Moments from The Walking Dead Season 4

Hershel’s “You Risk Your Life” Speech (Episode 3, “Isolation”)
He came a long way from the grumpy ol’ farm owner we met in Season 2. By the time we arrived at Season 4, Hershel Greene had become one of the more beloved members of our band of survivors. Yes, he was the one that kinda pussified Rick for the majority of Season 4, but he had the best intentions. Always known for giving sage advice, Hershel’s finest moment of Season 4 had to have been the “speech” he delivers when talking to Maggie about why he continues to return to the quarantined section of the prison while the sickness is running wild.

Carol Gets the Boot (Episode 4, “Indifference”)… Then Returns! (Episode 10, “Inmates”)
We cruise through the superflu and “who killed David and Karen” episodes and land here at Episode 4 for the next big moment. Carol. Carol, who went from abused wife to cold-hearted ass-kicker (and maybe because she took so much shit for so long, the transition was a welcome change). But according to Farmer Rick, Carol took things too far when she killed David and Karen. As we remember, Rick exiles Carol with a carload of supplies and returns to the prison alone in the following episode (#5, “Internment “). We never did get the showdown between Rick and Daryl we thought would occur after he booted Carol, but there wasn’t time for that with you-know-who bearing down on them. Then, as quickly as she left, Carol returns in Episode 10. Much to the delight of a somewhat overwhelmed Babysitter Tyreese, Carol shows up along the train tracks. And not a moment too soon… although Tyreese did look pretty badass with Judith strapped in front of him papoose-style.

The Return of The Governor (Episode 5, “Internment”)
Oh, we knew he was still out there. But just when everything was starting to settle… The medicine run had been successful, and it seemed as if Glenn, who was clinging to life by a thread, was going to survive and the flu was soon to be a thing of the past. Rick felt as if he had handled things by sending Carol away, and now it appeared they would be in for some much deserved peace. But as Rick and Carl are out in the field tending to their precious crops, whom do we see standing in the woods just outside the perimeter of the prison gates? That’s right, The Governor. Whether he’s calling himself Philip or Brian or John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt, The Governor is always bad news… and he proved it again in Season 4.

Go Christmas Caroling with The Killing of a Sacred Deer



Given that I personally have gone Christmas caroling with various lunatics hopped up on eggnog, what the hell… why not go Christmas caroling with The Killing of a Sacred Deer? Dig on this latest clip!

Look for the flick starring Colin Farrell (Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, In Bruges, 2009) and co-starring Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (Best Actress, The Hours, 2003) to hit Blu-ray, DVD, and digital on January 23rd. Yorgos Lanthimos directs.

Special features include “An Impossible Conundrum” featurette, and the package will be priced at $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.

Dr. Steven Murphy (Farrell) is a renowned cardiovascular surgeon presiding over a spotless household with his ophthalmologist wife, Anna (Kidman), and their two exemplary children, 12-year-old Bob (Sunny Suljic) and 14-year-old Kim (Raffey Cassidy). Lurking at the margins of Steven’s idyllic suburban existence is Martin (Barry Keoghan), a fatherless teen he has covertly taken under his wing.

As Martin begins insinuating himself into the family’s life in ever-more unsettling displays, the full scope of his intent becomes menacingly clear when he confronts Steven with a long-forgotten transgression that will shatter the Murphy family’s domestic bliss.

Which Monsters May Be Making Their TV Debut in Junji Ito Collection?



Studio Deen’s highly-anticipated anime anthology Junji Ito Collection has been building buzz, especially since its new teaser dropped weeks ago. Eagle-eyed fans who are well-acquainted with horror mangaka Junji Ito’s body of work will spot some familiar faces in the new trailer, brought to the small screen by showrunner Shinobu Tagashira.

So, who among Ito’s famous menagerie of monsters may be making an appearance in the show when it airs next year?

Oshikiri Toru

Oshikiri is the morally-questionable highschooler who begins to question his perception of reality in Hallucinations, a series of some loosely connected one-shots. Oshikiri’s a little on the short side, with an even shorter fuse. One thing he’s not short on is moneyas evidenced by his impressive, albeit creepy, mansion. We’ve yet to see which of his adventureswhich range from murder to parallel dimensionswill be his television debut.


The once-chatty Yuuko falls ill and sees her worst fears come to pass in Slug Girl, the famous one-shot whose brand of body horror is sure to feel like a distant cousin (or maybe a predecessor?) to Uzumaki‘s “The Snail” chapter. It offers little in the way of answers but is best enjoyed in all its bizarre glory.

The Intersection Bishounen

In Lovesick Dead, one of Ito’s longer standalone stories, an urban legend causes a rash of suicides when young girls begin to call upon a mysterious, black-clad spirit called the Intersection Bishounen. The custom catches on quickly among teenagers, out late and eager for him to tell them their fortune in life and love, since his advice is to die for. Literally.

Souichi Tsujii

A long-running recurring character in Ito’s manga (probably second only to Tomie herself), you’ll know Souichi by the nails he sucks on or sticks out of his moutha strange habit borne out of an iron deficiency. He’s an impish kid whose fascination with the supernatural makes him the odd man out in an otherwise normal family. The morbid pranks he likes to playfunny only to him—don’t do much to endear him to his peers or relatives, either.


The titular character in Fashion Model, Fuchi works as a professional model for her, shall we say, unique look and Amazonian stature. When she and another actress are hired by a crew of indie filmmakers, Fuchi shows them that she doesn’t like sharing the limelight. She also makes a cameo in a couple of Souichi’s stories, and in them he finds her genuinely attractive. Beauty, after all, is in the eye of the beholder.
