“The pilot of AMCu0026#39;s prequel to its little known zombie TV show was just great! Iu0026#39;d give it a 9 out of 10.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt looks as though u0026quot;Fear the Walking Deadu0026quot; will be a smartly scripted horror drama with relatable, realistic, three-dimensional characters — something I think u0026quot;The Walking Deadu0026quot; has often stumbled with. (My fan friends strongly disagree.) The cast was quite good across the board — but especially Frank Dillane, whose performance as a heroin addict with tragic recognition was just outstanding. And u0026quot;Fearu0026quot; shows fans of the zombie horror sub-genre exactly what the vast majority of movies fail to examine — what happens when an epidemic is in its infancy. No, there are none of the zombie u0026quot;swarmsu0026quot; that are the bane of Rick Grimes and company, but the u0026quot;slow burnu0026quot; horror here delivers nicely.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI am on board with this.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHey … when Dillaneu0026#39;s addict character starts screaming at the character of u0026quot;Gloriau0026quot; in the abandoned church, am I the only one who started humming Laura Braniganu0026#39;s u0026quot;Gloria?u0026quot;”
