The Walking Dead is full of thrills and chills, but what are the most frightening moments from the post-apocalyptic show? This Halloween we count down our top 10 most frightening moments from The Walking Dead.

Zombies abound on AMC’s groundbreaking horror series The Walking Dead, but they’re not always the scariest things on screen.

10. Glenn falls into the well

Poor Glenn always finds himself as the group’s errand boy, and in this scene, Glenn is being lowered into a well on Hershel’s farm to help remove a fat, bloated walker. Things don’t go according to plan when the rope Glenn is tied to slips from its anchor and sends him within biting range of the walker. The others manage to get Glenn out, but it was a close call.

9.  Discovering the walkers in Hershel’s barn

We know that Hershel originally thought his bitten family and friends were just sick and started collecting them in his barn, but we didn’t realize it until Glenn invites Maggie to the barn for some hanky-panky. Before Maggie can warn him, Glenn discovers the walkers after climbing into an upper window. As an added surprise, Sophia was in the barn the whole time!

8. Rick and Glenn camouflage themselves with zombie guts

This may have been one of the grossest moments of The Walking Dead as well as one of the most terrifying. Anytime someone decides to walk straight into a herd of walkers is terrifying. Glenn and Rick find that the camouflage works enough, but they’re in trouble when is starts to rain.

7. Rick gets trapped in Atlanta

Rick was alone for so long, and after waking up in the hospital to a life full of more zombies than live human beings, the world is a scary place. After heading to Atlanta, Rick thought he was finally going to catch a break and meet up with other survivors, but instead he meets up with a lot more walkers than he bargained for.

His horse is eaten right from under him, and he ends up getting trapped in a military tank, with walkers surrounding him on all sides. Luckily Glenn is there to save him from being eaten alive.

6. Shane disables Otis at the school

We knew that Shane might not be the most honorable guy, but he never did anything too bad (aside from the time when Dale saw him lining up his shotgun at Rick), until he went to get medical supplies with Otis at the school. Sneaking their way through quite a few walkers, Shane and Otis look like they might be in the clear, until Shane decides Otis has to be sacrificed.

So he shoots him in the leg, and then lets him get eaten alive by zombies. We understand why Shane felt the need to do this, but we don’t understand how he could do it. Why did he shoot him in the leg and not just kill him? The walkers would have attacked him either way. In this moment, we saw the true selfish evil in Shane’s character.

5. Rick kills those two guys in the bar

While looking for Hershel in town, Rick and Glenn find him drinking in a bar. Unfortunately, a couple of other guys show up looking for people and supplies, and that puts Rick in a tricky situation. The tension is high and when the newcomers try to threaten Rick, he makes a tough decision and shoots them both dead. We really see Rick’s character hardening in this scene.

4. Hershel’s farm is overrun by walkers

It was always too good to be true, the paradise Rick and the survivors found on Hershel’s farm. After spending a few relaxing weeks there, suddenly the whole place is overrun by walkers, and the group is hopeless in fighting them all off, so they have to run. A few people die and Andrea is split from the group. Even though Hershel had unlimited ammo, they had to fight hard to make it out of there alive.

3. The Governor watches his heads

We have been anticipating the Governor’s arrival, and after his introduction in the last episode, we only got a small glimpse of maniacal side. He takes out an entire camp of National Guard folks with no remorse, but the scariest thing we’ve seen so far from the Governor is his room full of heads. He watches them like someone would watch TV, proud of his conquests that he keeps in tanks.

2. Shane tries to kill Rick

Shane was on a downward spiral into the land of Nothing Good Can Happen, and when he sent Rick on a wild goose chase after killing the boy they held captive, Shane was set to kill his former best friend. Shane is terrifying in this psychotic incident, during which he thinks killing Rick will actually make the group stronger.

We all know that Shane just wanted to be with Lori, and as a more ruthless man than Rick, Shane thought he was better to lead. So he decided to take over the old fashioned way: Murder the person in charge.

Too bad Rick beat him to it (thank goodness). This scene was incredibly suspenseful. Could you imagine if Shane was leading the group now?

1. Rick finds the prisoners

For the entire winter, Rick’s group has been on the move, scavenging houses for food, supplies, and shelter. When the gang comes across the prison, they think they can finally settle down for a little while. What they don’t expect to find are other people living in the prison.


We see this is the most frightening moment in The Walking Dead so far because when Rick and his crew met the prisoners, we had no idea who these guys were. They were obviously criminals, but Rick’s company was unsure of their crimes. These men were especially terrifying if you’ve read the comics and know what a few of them did in that version.

Tomas proved to be the most threatening of the prisoners, and there was constant anxiety as to whether or not he would flip a switch and try to kill Rick or anyone else. We also saw how crazy he went when he killed Big Tiny after he was bitten. Finally Rick kills Tomas with his machete, but the tension was at an all time high in this scene. To us, that was the most terrifying moment of The Walking Dead that we’ve seen so far.

The Powers That Be have spoken, and they’re saying Guillermo del Toro will not be making a third Hellboy installment.

Fans across the globe are shedding tears as we learn that director/writer del Toro will not be helming another Hellboy movie. It’s time to punch something, smoke a cigar, and then find a kitten before you settle in for the bad news.

In mid-January, del Toro asked fans to vote in a 24-hour poll to show support for making Hellboy III. He promised that if it got 100,000 votes within the time frame, he’d take it to the studio and have a talk with them about making the film.

The Powers That Be have spoken, and they’re saying Guillermo del Toro will not be making a third Hellboy installment.

Fans across the globe are shedding tears as we learn that director/writer del Toro will not be helming another Hellboy movie. It’s time to punch something, smoke a cigar, and then find a kitten before you settle in for the bad news.

In mid-January, del Toro asked fans to vote in a 24-hour poll to show support for making Hellboy III. He promised that if it got 100,000 votes within the time frame, he’d take it to the studio and have a talk with them about making the film.

Unfortunately, del Toro did not get the answer we were hoping for.

However, there is hope for fans of the comics, as artist and creator Mike Mignola reminded us that just because del Toro isn’t going to be involved anymore, it doesn’t mean there won’t be future Hellboy movies. There’s always hope.

This is good news for those who perhaps didn’t like del Toro’s take on the character. It hints at a possible reboot of the franchise, but if that were to happen, don’t expect Ron Perlman to reprise his role.

For those who fell in love with Perlman’s interpretation of the titular character, this is certainly a blow. However, del Toro does wish the franchise luck, and it’s not like he’s hurting for work (he’s got Netflix’s Trollhunters, Pacific Rim 2, and The Shape of Water, to just name a few).

This tweet is certainly interesting, as it hints that he wanted to take Hellboy in a new direction, but his vision did not match the vision of the studio. Does this mean they’ve got another idea in mind already, and if so, will it be Hellboy III, or a Hellboy for a new generation?

With Ron Perlman out of the picture, it’s likely the studio may try to do a reboot, rather than replace the actor for a potential sequel. If there is a reboot, there could be resistance from fans, but with updated technology and someone else’s vision, we could be looking at an interesting new set of superhero movies that will still feel different from the blockbusters currently taking over cinemas.

The synopsis for Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda reads, “Simon Spier is sixteen and in love. Sure, he has never met the mysterious ‘Blue’ in person, but he’s falling hard and fast for their email love letters. There’s only one problem: Blue is a boy, Simon is gay, and he hasn’t told anyone else.”

The novel made the world (and Hypable) fall in love with the story, and the current cast and creative team have fans excited for this adaptation. With Wyck Godfrey’s Temple Hill Entertainment (The Maze Runner series, The Twilight Saga, and the upcoming Power Rangers) behind the scenes, it’s bound to be a big production.

Iwan Rheon has been cast as Maximus in Marvel’s upcoming ABC series, Inhumans.

Iwan Rheon will star as Maximus, an integral member of the Inhuman royal family. As the brother of the Inhuman king Black Bolt, Maximus holds considerable power in the alien city of Attilan. Charming and clever, he is exceptionally loyal to his people.

But unsurprisingly to those familiar with Rheon’s body of work, Maximus also hides darker ambitions — including taking the throne from Black Bolt.

Iwan Rheon has been cast as Maximus in Marvel’s upcoming ABC series, Inhumans.

Iwan Rheon will star as Maximus, an integral member of the Inhuman royal family. As the brother of the Inhuman king Black Bolt, Maximus holds considerable power in the alien city of Attilan. Charming and clever, he is exceptionally loyal to his people.

But unsurprisingly to those familiar with Rheon’s body of work, Maximus also hides darker ambitions — including taking the throne from Black Bolt.

Iwan Rheon is best known for his terrifying turn as Ramsay Bolton in HBO’s Game of Thrones. He has starred in the British series Misfits and Vicious, and may never play a hero again in his life.

Marvel’s head of television Jeph Loeb, who also serves as an executive producer on Inhumans, suggests that those villainous skills will be well-deployed in the role of Maximus.

“Iwan’s ability to be charming, roguish, and still completely unexpectedly dangerous were all the different sides we needed to bring the character to life,” Loeb says. “We’re thrilled to have him on board.”

Showrunner Scott Buck agrees.

“Maximus is a complex character. Likable, charming, tragic and villainous all in the same moment,” he says, “And I’m very excited to have someone of Iwan’s considerable talent.”

Marvel’s Inhumans will be produced in partnership with IMAX. The first two episodes will screen in IMAX theaters before the show’s network debut in mid September. Spanning the course of eight episodes, the series will tell the story of the Inhuman royal family, with the associated drama that just happens when you’re a family of aliens with magical powers trying to rule a secret city.

A leaked cast list for Inhumans hinted at a complex lineup of characters, including Black Bolt’s wife Medusa and her sister Crystal. Karnak, as well as the three-legged horse Gorgon and amphibious Triton round out the eclectic cast. And with Iwan Rheon in place as Maximus, it seems like just a matter of time before the rest of the family falls into line.
