Watch the Harrowing Opening Minutes of Fear the Walking Dead
Fear the Walking Dead premieres this Sunday (where has the summer gone?), and now AMC has released the first hair-raising minutes of the Walking Dead spin-off:

WORLDWIDE EXCLUSIVE: #FearBeginsHere this Sunday at 9/8c.

Fans who are more interested in the zombie action fare will be relieved to know we see a walker within the first three minutes of the show (although early reviews indicate that the walkers are few and far between at first). But it's also clearly a different show from The Walking Dead, both in its timeline and tone. Aside from that one shot of Nick's zombified girlfriend(?), the opening minutes are all tension and suspense.

And like the early seasons of Walking Dead, it's artfully filmed; Nick, who struggles with drug addiction, looks very much like a red-eyed zombie when he opens his eyes in the first shot, and even carries himself like a walker while he's looking for Gloria, shuffling and holding his limbs at awkward angles.

Fear the Walking Dead stars Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane, and Alicia Debnam-Carey. It premieres this Sunday, August 23, at 9pm on AMC.
