Re: World War Z ratings/spoilers

I think with Zombies they're pretty much the only supernatural/monster trope left to make scary. Vampires have been pussified/neutered by Twilight along with them Werewolves. Ghosts are over done and/or hard to do right. Probably largely because there's no established consistency on how to portray them what their "abilities" are and so forth. So that pretty much leaves zombies. Zombies are easy to do (they're dead bodies, reanimated, that come after you without stopping and spread disease/infection; unlike ghosts which are intangible spirits that sort of follow you around and make a nuisance) and they've not been romanticized by other works (like vampires and werewolves)
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
