The Walking Dead may contain a bevy of flesh-hungry zombies but it’s really the human relationships that propel the action. Season five of the acclaimed television series introduced character Deanna Monroe (played brilliantly by seasoned actress Tovah Feldshuh. With season six now out on DVD and Blu-ray, Tovah was nice enough to speak with me about her work on the show, as well as her extensive career as a celebrated actress. Here’s how the interview went:
With the hugely popular The Walking Dead injecting new life and excitement into the zombie genre, it was only a matter of time a ridiculous spoof would be made to lampoon everything the undead monster phenomenon stood for. The Walking Deceased is a lackluster attempt to mock zombie films and TV shows and while it is in vein of the Scary Movie franchise, it is a far cry from funny or even interesting mockery. Sure it’s cute in its execution here and there but it sadly misses the mark. Hardcore fans of zombie lore might find it appealing but casual audiences may want to seek entertainment elsewhere.
