Zombies will never be sexy. Never will we see an outbreak (teehee) of zombie movies and TV shows like the vampire and werewolf phenomenon. As much as I love zombies, I am glad of that fact.
Zombies are meant to be scary; they are meant to make you wish you knew something about survival, they don’t however, make you want to hump their leg.
I think that the whole vampire/werewolf sexy-time theme will eventually run it’s course (how many times can these guys stand around with no shirts on?), but zombies will always be terrifying. They look human but are so distorted that they are disturbing. Werewolves and vampires still look like hot humans when they aren’t displaying their “other sides”.
The success of The Walking Dead, 28 Days Later, the Resident Evil Trilogy (the last few in the series have very little to do with zombies, am I right?) etc., is based on the fact that people love to be scared. Vampires used to be scary but now they are sexy, dominating, lustful creatures that still suck blood but are revered as sex gods.
I will probably stop watching movies or TV the day that they come out with “Zombie High” or “I Fell In Love With My Dead Neighbor”. On that day I will most likely be found gnawing on someone’s face, just to prove that zombies are something to be feared, not fucked.
