Whether its zombies or vampires, the undead are fast-becoming permanent staples in television and movies. Zombie godfather George Romero is still knocking out low-budget, zombie movies like last year's Survival of the Dead, and AMC's The Walking Dead TV show also subscribed to Romero's classic, shambling zombies and scored a hit that had larger ratings than network mainstay Mad Men.
Meanwhile, zombies scored big at the box office with more athletic versions of zombies featured in 2009's Zombieland and (the few times they showed up) in 2010's Resident Evil: Afterlife. Even Europe has jumped into the zombie craze with the Norwegian Nazi zombie flick Dead Snow, the French zombie/mobster hybrid The Horde and Spain's zombie/demons featured in [Rec] and [Rec] 2. With everyone looking for the next great zombie movie, producers are scouring all of popular culture for the next, great zombie movie. video game trailer seen by millions >> Posted 03.01.11 by Ryan
