With The Walking Dead franchise at the peak of it's popularity, Documentarians Cris Macht and Ian Vacek explore and examine why humanity is obsessed with the "zombie apocalypse". Cris and Ian interview fans that have been there since the comic book debuted in 2003 to the living rooms of the casual fan of the TV show across America, as well as everything in between including Cosplayers, Collectors, A fan that built his own Daryl Dixon Motorcycle, A pilgrimage to the filming locations in Georgia, The Convention Circuit, Cast and Crew members, and more! The film also explores that fans of the show are more than just crazy zombie lovers, it examines that community and friendships are formed over their love for the series as well as that fans have hope that humanity will always prevail in the worst case situations.
If you're a fan of The Walking Dead, even casually, you'll enjoy this! I've seen other fan documentaries (Star Trek, etc.) produced by Hollywood types, and this one is as good, if not better, than any of them. It really captures the essence of how a TV Show can touch people's lives. Don't mistake this for a documentary "about" the show, although it features some former cast members and extras (aka, walkers). It's totally about fans of the show and the impact it's had on their lives. From those that just like to cos-play as their favorite character, those that attend the various fan conventions, those that collect memorabilia, those that tour the various filing locations, to those who's lives have been ever changed by a TV show. There are a couple really touching segments, and, you get the feeling that the actors and producers really appreciate all the fan support. Overall, a very professionally produced and entertaining look at the fans of The Walking Dead!
