Box office success hasn't changed their minds about makin' good on their small screen aspirations though.

Start Date Set for The Walking Dead Pilot

There's not much that warms the heart of your old Uncle Creepy more than zombies, especially when they're contained within such a rich universe as the one created by Robert Kirkman in The Walking Dead.

But what else should you expect?

Day of the Dead 25th Anniversary Edition Coming to UK Blu-ray

One thing I hate about Blu-ray is the damn region locking that plagued DVD. Before importing a disc, I've got to do plenty of research to ensure it'll work in my player, which sometimes leads to depressing news. While we have a pretty sweet version of Day of the Dead in high definition already thanks to Anchor Bay, today's announcement of a UK edition sounds even sweeter!
