Just in the last ten years we've had 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later, five Resident Evil movies, REC, two House of the Dead movies, 8 or 9 "of the Dead" sequels/remakes/spin-offs, Shaun of the Dead, Fido, I Am Legend, Planet Terror, Zombieland, and lots more that I can't think of off the top of my head. I honestly don't think there's a genre more played out than zombie movies. They make vampire movies look fresh and creative.
Word. Zombies are played. It's time to get over them popular culture, I'm not sure what the obsession was with them to begin with.
It's part of a larger fascination with the apocalypse/collapse of civilization/end times/etc..
