AMC’s upcoming zombie-pocalypse TV series The Walking Dead is one of the most anticipated shows set to premiere this fall. It got a huge reaction coming out of Comic-Con and now that the trailer they showed there is online, you can see why. The trailer has got great music choices, a strong sense of melancholy and dread mixed with fun zombie-destruction, and hammers home the point made by 28 Days Later: in the event of a zombie apocalypse, the safest place to be is unconscious in a hospital.
The show also has a perfect premiere date: October 31st. The series premiere, which was directed by Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption) will also be supersized to 90 minutes. Now hit the jump to check out the 4:45 trailer.
