The Daily Dead team is proud to announce that we've teamed up with the King Falls AM radio show. Produced and co-hosted by Ben Arnold, this late-night radio talk show broadcasts out of small-town America and covers a wide range of topics that will be right at home on Daily Dead. With the always entertaining Sammy Stevens (formerly known as Shotgun Sammy from the BJ & Kazoo Morning Show) stepping in front of the microphone, we felt it was the perfect time to make King Falls AM available in our new "Listen" section on Daily Dead. Expect to hear new broadcasts of the show on the 1st and 15th of every month, and you can listen to the first broadcast right now!

Always ready to defend his friends or say a one-liner worthy of printing out and hanging on your wall, it's easy to see why Abraham is such a fan favorite character on AMC's The Walking Dead.

[Spoiler warning for those who haven't watched the first episode of The Walking Dead Season 7.]

Coming on the heels of the post-Scream slasher movie renaissance, director Geoffrey Wright’s 2000 effort Cherry Falls had a difficult journey to find an audience. Rejected for an R rating by the MPAA despite several rounds of cuts, the movie was unable to secure theatrical distribution and wound up premiering in an even more truncated form in the States on the USA Network in 2000 (it received a theatrical release overseas). Over the course of the next 15 years, though, the movie developed a well-deserved cult audience who recognized it for being one of the better slashers to come out of that second wave.
This is a Cinderella story about a girl who could never quite shake off the soot from her heels. The girl who found her prince, made her way to the kingdom, but still couldn’t fit into her glass slipper—at least, not the way the old princess did, not like Rebecca.

This was not my first trip down Stephen King Lane. Having seen, by this point in 1983, Carrie, ‘Salem’s Lot, and The Shining, and terrified by some (sorry, Jack, you were a dull boy to me), I eagerly awaited the next screen adaptation from his ever expanding library. At this point I was just starting to delve into his novels, but The Dead Zone had not come across my radar. With little idea what the film was about, I went in cold and staggered out of the theater, stunned by what I had just witnessed. It stands as my favorite King adaptation for its ability to touch me in a way few horror films have been able to do.
