I’d like to look at two artifacts side by side.
First, AARP released a rather hilarious Betty White commercial involving zombies.
Second, one of the most promising movie concepts in years is heading straight for us. I haven’t been this excited since Snakes on a Plane.
Thanks in no small part to the novels (and now the movie) of Seth Grahame-Smith, we are clearly into the genre-bending age of this latest infatuation with zombies and vampires. This moment is akin to the first time somebody thought to combine Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” and “The Wizard of Oz.”
This kind of permissive genre-mashing is a good sign for new innovation in the zombie space, and for the Zombielanche project in particular.
