Kotaku Off Topic: Walking Dead

Tonight's Kotaku Off Topic is a little horrific, not for the faint of heart. Enter the non-video game related discussion... if you dare!

Speaking of faint of heart, I used to be pretty squeamish when it came to horror films. Movies like The Return of the Living Dead and Poltergeist used to make my skin crawl and my stomach churn when I was but a wee lad. Hell, even the original V television mini-series almost made me lose my lunch when the visitors started swallowing rodents whole.

I'm still a creampuff when it comes to real violence. I don't enjoy gore or blood. But I do appreciate a good fictional scare. So any recommendations for quality horror films you think that I or your fellow Kotakuites may have missed, leave 'em in the comments.

Otherwise, talk about whatever strikes your fancy and tread lightly among the following links.

    The Walking Dead? The comic!? To TV!!??
    Its actually happening!!!???

    I had heard rumours ages back, but this is awesome news!

    Nice, and it's being directed by Darabont...

    BUT...

    as much as the zombie sub genre is easily my fav out of everything horror related, the zombie theme is getting totally thrashed.

    I hate this term but it's like the zombie genre has been "sold out".

    Perfect example is when i was playing Left 4 Dead and this dude, wasn't even a kid, was saying how he absolutely loves zombie movies and everything related, so i asked what he thinks of the new Romero film and his response was..."who's that?".

    Something died inside of me that night. My beloved genre is dead!
