There's Finally Something to Fear in New Fear the Walking Dead Teaser

If you caught the premiere of Humans on AMC last night (recap coming later), then you probably saw this short new teaser for The Walking Dead spin-off, which may include our first look at a zombie on the show—or whatever proto-Walker will be munching on our new protagonists. But that’s not all!

The show also released its first clip, and, uh, it’s not quite as ominous:

Damn it, Kim Dickens! Pay attention to computer nerds! Believe everything you read on the internet! It’s the only way to survive!

While the clip is groan-inducing—a nerdy computer geek who’s overweight and has acne? Bold choice, Fear the Walking Dead!—I really like the Romero-style of the teaser, which I also saw in the first trailer of that dude running in slow-mo. I don’t mean that just because zombies = Romero, I mean stylistically. I like how Fear is trying to differentiate itself from Walking Dead, cinematically speaking, and if Romero is their guidepost, well, I suppose I can forgive one clichéd computer nerd.
