I have a friend, Shaune, who's a big horror movie fan, but he has found the current character stuff on "The Walking Dead" rather boring. This is understandable: Television has never been able to be as flat-out scary as movies. There's something about a dark theater, big screen and big sound. Plus, weirdly, the fact that characters are more secondary (and disposable) in movies than on TV helps the scare factor. When watching an "X-Files" monster-of-the-week, for example, you don't have to worry that Mulder or Scully will be killed off. When watching a horror movie, everyone's expendable.
