Which of these The Walking Dead quotes is your favorite.
The post-apocalyptic horror series is actually based on a comic book! The ‘walkers’ are quite terrifying indeed, and Rick Grimes ends up leading a group of humans and trying to keep as many people as possible safe.
The ‘walkers’ feed on humans and other creatures, completely devouring them. They are attracted to loud noises, like gunshots. They can sniff out the humans as well because they have an enhanced sense of smell.
Early on in the series, it seemed that a person would be turned into a walker if they were bitten or scratched. However, it was later revealed that all humans carry the pathogen that caused these people to mutate into zombies The mutation occurs after the death of the host. In order to stop anyone who dies from turning into a ‘walker,’ survivors must damage the host’s brain or destroy the body, by burning it.
The show has spawned several spinoffs, and people just can’t get enough zombies. Although, not everyone was happy with the ending of Season 9… If you haven’t watched it yet, it might be a good one to stream!
