NEW RELEASE UPDATE: THE WALKING DEAD: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON Out August 26th (Limited Edition Image Inside)


Want to start a fight in the horror-verse? One of the best ways to do it is to start talking about the latest episode of The Walking Dead or worse yet... spoil it for a fan. Few shows seem to divide horror fans as much as The Walking Dead. If you love it, you post about it and get excited, reveling in the evening's episode. If you hate it, you troll the shit out of the fan-boy posts and update your status with comments about zombies being "so over done" and snarky, creative quips that only bring more attention to the show.

We love the Walking Dead at DOCTERROR.COM (though maybe not the first season so much) and each season I get excited to enjoy a nice long romp with my friends on AMC. The upcoming Blu-ray release of season 4 is coming out August 26th which in and of itself matters very little. AMC will undoubtedly do marathon after marathon ahead of season 5's release. Fans will definitely want to pick it up for the extras. Hardcore fans should see... THIS...

This is the limited edition from McFarlane Toys! We've seen the screwdriver through the eye limited edition and the "heads" limited edition. This is just a beautiful piece of sculpted undead goodness. 

Full release notes below.
