Fear the Walking Dead: Let’s Talk About S1E1

fear-the-walking-dead-teaser-129237Last night marked not only the first airing of the Fear the Walking Dead spin-off series but also the first time I’ve ever watched a Walking Dead episode the night it aired.  And that’s only because I watched The Walking Dead pilot a couple of years after it aired (I haven’t watched any other episodes).  Yes, I’m a huge Walking Dead fan (the comic) who feels no need to see the TV show because I know the major plot points.  The TV show will be different, of course, but not enough to make me interested especially when the books keep coming out and are amazing.  In this sense it’s the anti-Game of Thrones.

What other movies had really strong movie posters but missed the mark on delivering a good movie?  Fair warning.  These movies are ACTUALLY bad!
