TWD Webisodes & Vincent Price Film Festival Offer Taste of Horror to Come

The team behind AMC’s The Walking Dead has released another series of webisodes to promote the upcoming fourth season. The creators first launched this idea in 2011 as the show was headed into its second season. That year fans were treated to six webisodes that chronicled the outbreak of the zombie plague from the viewpoint of a mother — the infamous bicycle girl as we would later discover. Last year a four part series entitled Cold Storage was released; in that incarnation a lone survivor seeks refuge inside a storage facility only to discover that it’s no safer than the world at large.

This time around fans can enjoy a three part series called The Oath, which details the unlikely road to survival for one couple. It is, in my opinion, the bleakest of the webisodes to date. I’ve stated before that these brief forays into other areas of The Walking Dead timeline should be considered essential viewing. The webisodes are produced with all the blood, guts, and professionalism as the show itself; the webisodes are directed by Walking Dead special effects guru, Greg Nicotero. The apocalyptic thrill ride will return to AMC Sunday, October 13th at 9pm.

The Redford Theater, located at 17360 Lahser Road in Detroit, will hold a Vincent Price Film Festival this weekend. On Friday, October 4th at 8pm there will be a screening of Diary of a Mad Man and The Raven. On Saturday, October 5th at 2pm there will be a viewing of House of Wax and then at 8pm a screening of The Masque of the Red Death and The Tingler. Tickets are $5 per show or $13 for the entire weekend.

I just recently found out about this and likely won’t be able to attend. If any readers of Horrorlust happen to make it to the Redford Theater be sure to leave a comment and let the rest of us know how it was.
