Because of the traditionally edgy, gory nature of zombie fare
, it hasn't enjoyed the blockbuster crossover success of vampire films and TV shows, but that doesn't mean that zombies aren't as popular as ever. The Resident Evil
franchise continues to perform solidly, and in 2009, Zombieland
became the highest-grossing zombie movie domestically in the US (unless you count I Am Legend
, which technically doesn't have zombies in it). Meanwhile, literary zombie works like The Walking Dead
and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
were optioned into live-action adaptations.
