If you’re looking for an early Halloween gift for your favorite freak, the third-season DVD of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead‘ is set to hit stores at the end of this month. The Zombie Production Team has been releasing a ton of exclusive featurettes highlighting our favorite creepy memories of the last season in anticipation of the release, and fans are eating them up like delicious brains.
The first is a fun behind-the-scenes look at the making of one of the most anticipated television adaptations from the graphic novel — the moment when Michonne finds the Governor’s secret: Penny. Well, after she discoveres his other secret: creepy wall o’ heads. Okay, he has a lot of secrets. Regardless, here’s how you get a child to act like a mindless member of the undead.
Next, we see some special-effects mastery at work. Comic fans weren’t sure how the show was going to pull off showing Michonne’s chained-up armless, bottom-jawless “pets,” but they did it masterfully. Check it out here, and, claustrophobics, make a note not to appear as supporting characters in any zombie shows.
Finally, it was announced in their press release and some early photographs shown over on MTV Geek that, after the success of the disgusting limited-edition season-two box set in the shape of a zombie with a screwdriver in its eye, this most recent season has another sculpture in store. This season’s DVD will be available as a limited-edition “zombie water tank” by McFarlane Toys, complete with the heads of your zombie enemies staring back at you. Just add water (yes, really), and the creepy decapitated noggins will swim to life, sure to inspire the psychopathic Governor inside all of you.
‘The Walking Dead’ returns to AMC later this fall.
