Why are there so many Zombie movies on tv lately?

What is it with the rash of zombie movies on tv lately.
Every Monday night there's a pommie show called Dead Set on SBS. It's a show set in the world of the U.K's Big Brother and the contestants being trapped in the house as the world gets zombiefied.
Then afterwards, there's a zombie movie. Last week was the Spanish original ''Rec'', which was remade last year. About a reporter following two firemen to a callout and then getting trapped in the apartment building because of a plague thing.
Tonight there's one about mutated tree sap infecting people. Saturday night I watched Dawn of the Dead on channel ten.
I went to bed a 1:30 am and couldn't sleep for fear of being bitten.
It would seem that the last month or so has been zombiefied.
28 Days Later has also been on.
Now there's a new computer game about 10,000 zombies or something, and Woody Harrelson in a new movie called Zombieland.
I don't know what it is about zombie movies, or why they've been on, but I am bizarrely drawn to them and then find myself not being able to sleep.
Only got myself to blame.

  1. I think it's because now Vampires are cool, they're trying to make Zombies the next big thing.

    I'd never heard of Dead Set. Or most of the other stuff you mentioned. I have some serious catching up to do Zombie wise.

  2. Yup, what Scoman said, they're trying to cash in on the whole freaky, otherworld, characters, but somehow I don't think Zombies will cut it,.

  3. Because ZOMBIES RULE. If you haven't seen Zombieland yet, see it!

  4. My boyfriend loves crazy Zombie movies. Whenever we are watching them together I can't help but cover my eyes every now and then. Wouldn't it be cool if there was a zombie vs. vampire movie? I wonder who would win? They are both undead so hmmm...

  5. There's even more movies on Monday night and there was one on last night with Simon Baker.

    I don't think they're going away.
