    And the zombies are done up pretty horrifically. The pilot showed, for example, the top half of a zombie (sans pelvis and legs) with entrails hanging out the body, the face half-eroded, dragging itself through a park by its arms. Hordes of zombies are also getting shot, bludgeoned, decapitated, skewered, etc. The pilot also featured a poor horse getting eaten by a zombie mob, although we didn't really see the details of it; we did also see humans getting eaten/bitten badly.

    It's decent movie-style makeup and prosthetics here, it looks pretty real.

    Some great character drama, which makes it more poignant than just a "zombie movie" though. It's more about the people dropped into this horrible situation, than about the zombies per se.

    My kids don't watch it, but they're teens and are really good at figuring out what's good for them. I think the eldest would watch it and find it interesting. My daughter would never come near it, she'd have nightmares. My middle kid could go either way, depending on mood, but not be really into it.
    Hmm, ok, good to know. Gore, I just find gross, rather than scary. Suspense will probably be what gets to me.

    I will place this in my TV watching queue after I get through the Wire, and Dexter.

    lol... certainly if you watch Dexter, you can handle this!

    I tend to pull whatever torso encasing clothing I am wearing over my face though when I watch it. >_> (And then I peep over it... like a ninja with a garbage bag full of popcorn. Wait, what?)

    Yes! Here is a short compendium:

    • Spiders
    • The possibility that that thing in my bath water is a cricket corpse instead of the blanket fuzz it turned out to be
    • The trailers for paranormal activity 1-infinity
    • The trailer for the movie Chernobyl
    • The Exorcist
    • That part of Silence of the Lambs where the guy is following her with night vision goggles on
    • Friends who sneak up behind me when I am watching something intense and then grabbing me
    • Dirty bathroom floors

    I'd say gore is more the issue than 'scary'. Things like... A very vivid shot of an axe going through a skull. Blood everywhere. Half zombie corpses with intestines strewn about. Decapitations by katana. That sort of goodness.

    Ok, that's more gross than scary, and I can combat it with my sweater of -12 to vision.

    Thanks

    I think there are some suspenseful moments that may give you a run for your money, but they don't often do that "SURPRISE ZOMBIE POP-UP!!!!" thing, which I sometimes like to call "startle porn." I HATE startle porn.

    The word of the day is now "startle porn."

    (Hmm, that may be two words, technically, but who's counting?!)

    Suspense is usually what gets to me... I can't handle it for very long. When it gets too much, too many possibilities in my head over AMGS WHAT IS GOING ON, I have to look up what WILL happen on wikipedia or I shall burst into a puff of planetary dust.

    Ah, well, there is some suspense. But if spoilers help you and you don't mind knowing what happens, then you should be able to find them pretty easily.
