On Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead, it opened and closed with a song from Lee DeWyze. Lee DeWyze was an American Idol winner back in season 9. His song Blackbird Song has recently gained him more national attention. His last song Fire Away played on the TV show Nashville.Here’s a clip with his song.
It didn’t take long. One of the first horror films has been picked up by Lionsgate. The flick is about Bigfoot. If I had to place a bet on this one, I’d say it will probably be a direct to VOD kinda thing. From THR comes some more details about the project.
Eduardo Sánchez, best known for co-directing the genre-defining movie The Blair Witch Project, is behind the flick, which aims to redefine the Sasquatch myth.
According to Lionsgate, the movie centers on five friends on a camping weekend in the remote woods of East Texas who struggle to survive against a legendary predator that is stronger, smarter, and more terrifying than anything they would have ever believed exists.
** Spoiler Alert**
The following AMC Walking Dead trailers covering episode 413 “Alone” have spoilers.
Here we are again. It’s time for our sixty second recap of The Walking Dead. While I realize other internet mags report on scene by scene from the episode, we like to cater to those just interested in the main highlights. So here we go.
For starters,last nights episode “Alone” was full of zombie kills.The show opened with a flashback from Bob Stookey in which Daryl and Glen ride up on him as he’s walking down the road. Then Daryl starts a brief interrogation followed by them accepting Stookey into the group.
Surrounded by walkers Maggie,Bob,and Sasha fight and as usual,barely escape being bitten. But that wasn’t the best part of the first half of the show. As expected, somethings going on with Daryl and Beth. After Beth steps in a bear trap injuring her ankle, Daryl winds up carrying her. But that’s not all! After spending a couple of nights bonding in a funeral parlor, and after escaping a horde of zombies, Daryl LEAVES Beth behind!(Didn’t see that one coming did you?)
Moving on (forty seconds left by my watch) Maggie continues her obsessive search for Glenn leaving behind Bob and Sasha.
In pursuit of Maggie, Sasha and Bob continue until they encounter the trail of “breadcrumbs” Maggie left for Glenn. Then Bob leaves Sasha “Alone”.
The show wraps with Sasha accidentally knocking a window out of its frame. Startled by the noise, guess who calls out Glenn’s name? You got it. Maggie’s back. And guess who they catch up with?
And Daryl? He’s found some new “friends” or should I say, they found him!
I hope you’ve enjoyed your sixty second recap of The Walking Dead’s “Alone” See you next week!

IndieWire reports that the SXSW Film festival will be previewing the dark vampire comedy Only Lovers Left Alive.
Jim Jarmusch’s stream of idiosyncratic characters that have driven his films to a cultural significance continues to flow through the independent film world. He now brings to his devoted fan base his latest feature “Only Lovers Left Alive,” starring Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston as atypical vampires contemplating the meaning of their existence.
The film details the lives of Adam and Eve as their relationship spans the course of centuries. Based on the trailer, it seems as though “Twilight” fans will want to stay away, with Jarmusch’s film wisely taking the dark comedy route and presenting his romantic leads as ultra-cool rather than vicious and monstrous.
“Only Lovers Left Alive,” which also stars Mia Wasikowska, Anton Yelchin, John Hurtand and Jeffrey Wright, now heads to the 2014 SXSW Film Festival. The film opens on April 11th.
NBC has started production on the pilot iZombie. From THR here are the details including the casing of Robert Buckley.
iZombie is described as a supernatural crime procedural that centers on a medical-student-turned-zombie who takes a job in the coroner’s office in order to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity. However, with every brain she eats, she inherits the corpse’s memories. With the help of her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she solves homicide cases in order to quiet the disturbing voices in her head.
One Tree Hill alum Robert Buckley has been set as a series regular in Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero’s CW drama pilot iZombie, from Warner Bros. TV.

From Gameasutra comes the latest on Zombie Chase 2. Available for Java and Android.
The wind blows over the houses, there is not a soul there, a dead town? No, but it is only a question of time! Hordes of zombies plunder the surroundings and it must be admitted, with a typical dramatic effect, that you are the last and only one who can avert a total destruction. Accept this challenge offered by Inlogic Software and be a hero of the Wild West.
Endless fun with lots of weapons and other improvements is awaiting you. You will be struggling your way through individual levels and there are different tasks for you apart from the destruction of enemies. Bodyguarding, protecting wagons, destroying buildings, or surviving attacks by the hordes of zombies, you will not miss any of those. In order not to end up in a mortuary, use first-aid kits, ammunition, pouches, or the help of an armed companion or an escort with a wagon. Arm yourself to the teeth – there are several types of zombies awaiting you: weaker, stronger, slow and extraordinarily fast. As an old American Indian saying goes: “ When the limbs fall, the cowboy smiles!“.
Things are definitely changing on The Walking Dead for Norman Reedus’s character Daryl as well as the rest of the splintered group. Take a look at this week’s sneak peak vid “Alone”.
