The premiere for The Walking Dead TV show was thrown last night and the after party was held at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and it sounds frigging awesome:

The party was pretty phenomenal. They were serving Zombies (the alcoholic kind, not the dead kind), and they had some of the show set pieces outside as decoration. There were also a number of zombies roaming around on the walk up to the party. There’s nothing quite walking through a dark cemetery with a near full moon, a strong breeze and copious amounts of the undead shambling their way towards you.

Creator Robert Kirkman was also tweeting about the fête this morning — co-creator Tony Moore was also on hand.

There were also AMC-sponsored Zombie walks across the US WORLD yesterday morning, and a lot of photos are going up; here are some on Facebook. We especially like the one of the undead and the Eternal City.

Just as a reminder, The Walking Dead TV show premieres on AMC on Halloween, Sunday, October 31 at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m.


  1. The Premier of The Walking Dead at the world famous Cineramadome (LA’s first 70mm theatre) was fantastic! The Afterparty at The Hollywood Forever Cemetary was both creepy and cool (especially inside the Mortuary) where they were serving blood red Zombie drinks. I was taking a poll to see what the (walking dead) zombies thought of the Premier, but most of their reactions were just, …uhhhhhhhhhhh…

    I also got a chance to talk with the writer, director and executive producer of The Walking Dead, Frank Darabont (Shawshank Redemption), HUNG star Thomas Jane, and (Emmy-winning) Mad Men writer, director and creator Matt Weiner.

    The only other thing that will top this night will be when AMC picks up this amazing new series for a second season. Don’t miss this thrilling new zombie incarnation Premiering this Sunday Night on AMC (check local listings).
