I wonder how a haunt would go over if this scene were reproduced. And children had to walk to get candy through a little path between sheet-covered corpses. Add a wagon off to the side piled high with bodies and a few torches, and dress in a dark cloak with a plague doctor mask and you have yourself a Black Death yard haunt (and some complaints from parents).

Great scene from The Walking Dead. I'm really enjoying this series and the amazing effects featured each week.

I'm kind of sad that there are only a few more episodes left. Can't wait for the dvd set to come out whenever it does.

I an also enjoying this series and I heard last week they already in line for a second season.

I think they do some of the best work with their corpses I've seen on TV, and film. They have a great consultant. I need to get in on that action. The flies were a genius touch that everyone else misses. A lot were CGI, but they must have rubbed the corpses with meat to attract some real ones. In reality the air would be thick with flies. The buzzing alone has made people run in my experience.

Just thinking about that scenario makes me crack up laughing.

I envision a group of kids followed closely by a group of chatting soccer mom's walking over from your next door neighbor's house. The neighbors decided to go with a "Harvest" motif this year. The soccer mom's are busy remarking to each other about the adorable "Precious Moments" scarecrow holding the "Happy Fall, Yall!" sign. By the time they stroll into your yard it's too late... Little Piper has already started crying.
I would have speakers hidden amongst the corpses that played the sound of flies and the occasional gurgling growl of an incubating zombie.
I would also have a ton of Halloween candy left over because nobody would probably want to walk to front door.

I like that idea a lot...and the show is great...a 'tastefully' done zombie movie...hehe

Holy Tarra says, "I have to say that I have paid a lot more attention to the make up effects in this series than the actualy plot. They've got some seriously talented effects people on their team. Wish I had one of those zombies for the Haunted Slough!"

So glad we had DVR to tape the first night--how dare they start on Halloween! But such a great show. I can hardly wait for Sundays to roll around.

Just wish they hadn't killed off the horse.

Complaints?! There would be torches and pitchforks where I live!

But it would be SO VERY WORTH IT!
