All kinds of movies there, "horror" was probably the least adaptable to television. This series The Walking Dead. The Walking Dead is a post-apocalyptic world where most of civilization was overrun by zombies, or "walkers" as they are called in the program. A small group of survivors led by Rick Grimes, are forced to leave their homes in search of refuge for hikers.
Crypt tales usually had a new story with new characters every week. There were very few themes or recurring characters because, at the time, was the only way to present horror in a television series. Each television writer tried to do a different short horror film for each new show. For some reason, he did not seek to have a solid history of The Walking Dead. The other part that makes the Walking Dead is so successful that it releases some of the viewing restrictions imposed on television. There's more blood and gore displayed on the screen than it had been previously authorized. We see this repeatedly, each time a walker bites a victim. Many human blood and viscera are seen on public television, which has not been authorized, except in very rare occasions.
Finally, The Walking Dead divides many obstacles on television and, in a word, makes it a great show!
