You'd think that with The Walking Dead being on hiatus until season 4 starts in October, I wouldn't be writing about the series very often -- but you'd be wrong. Totally wrong. Like, dead wrong. Zombies are basically my dream Jeopardy topic (aside from "overpriced hair care products" and "decades-old Simpsons quotes"), so a little thing like the show being off the air isn't going to slow me down, by golly.
With that said, let's get straight to the incredibly serious business of identifying the most memorable Walking Dead walkers to date. There are an awful lot to choose from (472 onscreen zombie deaths as of last December's amazing infographic by The National Post), but I've narrowed down the list to my 5 personal favorites. Take a look and see if you agree!
Which Walking Dead zombie did you think was the creepiest?

Who could forget this creepy little girl? We saw her in the opening scene of the very first episode, when Deputy Rick Grimes was traveling toward Atlanta. He stopped at a spookily abandoned gas station, where he spotted the little girl dressed in a robe and carrying a mangled stuffed bear. After calling out to her -- bad idea! BAD IDEA! -- he was forced to put a bullet in her head when she growled and tried to attack.
