Remember in the 90s when every other movie made after Silence of the Lambs was a serial killer movie? Well, if I had to predict which topic would win the ubiquity wars of the 00s it's gotta be zombies. I don't know why... there's no Silence sized blockbuster kicking off the trend but they just won't stop.
Another new one has been announced, this one coming from Brad Pitt and his Plan B productions. He outbid Leonardo DiCaprio for the latest zombie-filled hot property. Maybe Brad's Oceans posse can co-star?
So what is the appeal of zombies this decade? My theory is that everyone feels a little dead inside these days. It's hard not to give into doomsday thinking when the people running the world love themselves some Book of Revelations. The Apocalypse makes them hot. sigh.
