AMC's The Walking Dead is the most popular show in the history of television (not scientifically accurate), so it should come as no surprise that it's now about to receive the highest form of praise and recognition available — a TWD parody movie.
Imaginatively titled, Walking with the Dead, here's the synopsis for the spoof:
A month into the zombie apocalypse, a group of survivors, including four who “for safety reasons” go by the names of their favorite cities–Green Bay, Chicago, Brooklyn, and Harlem–a Sheriff fresh off a nice, relaxing, six-week coma, his small-business-owner 10 year old son, and a voiceover-prone zombie, Romeo, who has convinced the group that he’s not dead, just a little slow, are forced from the safety of their mall-camp in hopes of finding a rumored safe-haven.
When done well - such as The Naked Gun or Hot Shots - a spoof can be a clever, satirical and hilarious look at a particular genre or cultural trend, but more often than not (I'm looking at you Scary Movie) they are so mind-crushingly awful you fear for the future of civilization.
I wonder which category Walking with the Dead will fall in?
