I don't see the appeal. I'm into end of the world movies, particularly ones where it's man vs. nature, but I have never gotten into the zombie craze and don't get it at all. My husband said there was some study done a while back that says the zombie craze may be due to the economy and levels of depression amongst people our ages. Apparently our generation feels like zombies. He couldn't remember where he saw that though, so I don't have a link to provide.
Are you into the zombie craze?
