Darabont’s Own Hot
WALKING DEAD Swag!!
Herc’s Monday Giveaway I!!

Published at: Nov. 2, 2010, 12:25 p.m. CST by hercules

CONTEST IS OVER!! THE JUDGER: Email your info to HerculesAICN@Yahoo.com ASAP or lose your prize!!!! PRIOR POST: Here we go. You have 24 hours: “I worked two very specific homages to Stephen King into the pilot episode of The Walking Dead,” series mastermind Frank Darabont explains. “The first four AICN readers to correctly identify Steve King shout-out #1 will each receive a t-shirt. (It’s first-win-first-served when it comes to specifying t-shirt size.)” In addition, the first AICN reader who identifies the #2 much-harder-to-catch homage gets the Giclee print of Drew Struzan’s gorgeous Walking Dead art. ”Be warned: The second shout-out is a bitch to spot,” notes Frank. “Stephen King himself couldn’t do it.” Frank also offers these hints: “‘The crows’ and ‘the message scrawled on the farmhouse wall’ are incorrect answers. The two correct answers are not as generic as that, they are very specific to Stephen King. Also be aware that numbering these shout-outs as #1 and #2 does not mean they appear in that order. (I’ve numbered them in order of difficulty instead of order of appearance.)” Herc adds his own hint: The homages are not related to casting. We’re all aware that Jeffrey DeMunn and Laurie Holden previously appeared in Darabont movies based on King stories. Frank’s not talking about actors. So. What are the two intentional homages? ORIGINAL POST: I am – Hercules!! UPDATE: This is no longer a U.S. only contest!! Frank Darabont has agreed to ship these prizes anywhere in the world!! If you haven’t already, record Sunday’s “Walking Dead” premiere! Because it could help you win some extra-nifty undead swag that’s now sitting on the Darabont’s desk! Seriously, it’s on his desk! Right now! Sometime Monday we’ll be posting in this space a question about the 90-minute AMC premiere. This question has two answers. One is hard to derive and the other is insanely hard to derive.
The first four people to provide the easier answer in talkback will win an authentic and ultra-rare “Walking Dead” crew shirt that, if you like, Frank HIMSELF will autograph for you! With his actual hand and sharpie!
The first person to provide the insanely hard answer will get a rare “Giclee print” of genius artist Drew Struzan’s text-free, logo-free poster for “The Walking Dead.” “It’s a very high-end quality art print done on heavy stock archival paper,” Darabont tells AICN exclusively. “It’s worth mentioning the distinction, as Giclees are the highest quality way to reproduce art. They make lithographs look like crap.” Worth playing for? Watch “The Walking Dead”! Watch it hard! Record “The Walking Dead”! Because there’s no way you were watching hard enough! Then check back with AICN on Monday between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. PT (9 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET) for more details!

    Six episode Season One.

    by sways

    Remembering how the first 4 episodes of 24, obviously all written together as a long premiere, were usually tightly connected setting up the weeks to follow; The little 4 episode arc with Kal Penn from the beginning of season six culminating in a suitcase nuke going off for example.. <p> Given the nature of the source material and the small run, Walking Dead Season One should play out as a very tightly told six part opening story. <p> Would be cool if episode six went for a full wrap of their first story, without any form of cliffhanger/setup for the second. Leaving each season to begin and end separate chapters of their lives. <p> Read in the other WD talkback, someone say they thought the first scene of the little girl was miss placed. He could have a point.. <p> Props to all involved though. Here's hoping the door is opened for further comics adapted for television. If the Watchmen movie hadn't already appeared, this could've paved the way for that 12-part (HBO) series that would've told the story in the way we imagined it being told before Snyder. Who remade Dawn of the Dead. Bringing us nicely full circle back to zombies.

    loved the premiere

    by mrgreentheplant

    the crawling, leg-deprived zombie was one of the more disturbing and creepy monsters i've seen in a long time. the question that occurred to me with each exploding head was "why couldnt we have this before?" why has tv taken so long on an effective, serial horror show? it works so perfectly and i predict it will get such a huge following that it seems so stupid now that these ideas couldnt be on tv in non-censored form before now, at least not to this extent...

    i didnt record it

    by TheJudger

    because I have a standard direct tv setup, and I plan on buying it on BR when it comes out. I did watch it twice because I loved the ever loving hell outta it. Hope the question isn't a tiny visual easter egg thing like the "The Hills Have Eyes" poster in the "Evil Dead" I'll be totally screwed.

It's funny, but I watched with my 11 year old son last night and I said to him, "You know, I've been waiting for this kind of TV series since I was your age". I hope it does well, because it was f'ing awesome!

    DVR'd but haven't watched yet...

    by Keblar

    Damn, not going to get to watch it until late tonight. I almost bought the first book in Union station to read on the bus back from DC, but decided to approach the series fresh. <p> So glad WD is being well received. I love Darabont's work, even the thoroughly maligned Mist. He does fantastic adaptations, and seems like the only director who can really bring King to screen. He even seems like a sincere guy and a genuine artist; not the standard inflated arrogant Hollywood grifter that so many directors, even good ones, come across as. <p> Only down side to this success; Darabont won't be our own little poorly kept secret any more, but I guess that really isn't a bad thing.

    Wasn't this a great October

    by TheJudger

    I mean think about it. There was something new to watch on Halloween. We got two horror films in the cinemas for the month, and one of them killed it at the box office. Let's face it- August is not the time to release a Horror movie. October is. October is for scares for monsters and for creatures. Granted the movie theater should have had 5 or 6 horror flicks rolling out this month. I'm looking at you "Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark". <P>Saw's wrapped up. Finally... Let some new blood fight for those tober dollars next year. Maybe next October will find the cinema playing "The Lords of Salem" or something else perfect for the timeframe. Time it right. You will do so much better. <P>The ratings do not surprise me, This man made the Shawshank. I still remember watching that in cinemas with my Dad and a guy who was renting out a room named Henry. Miss them days.

    Also, the way Rick lights matches going down the pitch black stairwell reminded me of the kids chasing IT in the tunnels under Derry.

    TheJudger should be a winner

    by Wade Wilson

    Wait a second, TheJudger posted his answer first at 8:33pm yet he isn't one of the winners? Did I miss something? "The Gothic World of Stephen King by TheJudger Nov 1st, 2010 08:33:18 PM The founded in "1816" on the badges and The name "King" name homage for the County The Police work for."

  • Nov. 1, 2010, 11:02 p.m. CST

    Oh and....

    by Wade Wilson

    BassAckwards didn't even know the answer. He just copied what the other FOUR had already said, he even says in his post how dumb he was for not putting it together. I hereby found the NO PRIZE FOR BASS ACKWARDS fan club! "King County by Bass Ackwards Nov 1st, 2010 08:35:06 PM Duh, I even noticed that was weird cause there is no King County in GA. So stupid to not put two and two together, argh!."

  • Nov. 1, 2010, 11:21 p.m. CST

    Wade

    by Bass Ackwards

    I agree you're right, TheJudger beat me to it, I just emailed Herc to point out the same.

  • Nov. 1, 2010, 11:29 p.m. CST

    Yes, I missed the judger's answer

    by Hercules

  • Nov. 1, 2010, 11:32 p.m. CST

    by Hercules

    TheJudger's post pushes yours to fifth place. No prize for fifth. Sorry about that.

  • Nov. 1, 2010, 11:36 p.m. CST

    Dems da rules

    by Bass Ackwards

    No hard feelings!

  • Nov. 1, 2010, 11:41 p.m. CST

    TheJudger

    by Hercules

    Email me your address, phone, what size shirt you'd prefer and whether you want Frank Darabont to autograph it.

  • Nov. 1, 2010, 11:43 p.m. CST

    Well that was quick

    by Wade Wilson

    No hard feelings, just figured fair was fair.

  • Nov. 2, 2010, 6:25 a.m. CST

    Oh wow

    by TheJudger

    I thought my pre-contest guess attempt debarred me from playing somehow. Even though I was 100% unsure at that period of time that the trivia would involve finding hidden Stephen King homages. <P> Email sent, but damn.. I feel bad now about Bass getting nicked. Even more so, knowing he spoke up for me.
