Have zombies jumped the shark?

Paramount Pictures just released the first trailer for the new movie, World War Z. It looks pretty epic! I am a big fan of AMC’s The Walking Dead and the original George Romero zombie flicks, and just about anything zombie-related I can dig. But, everything reaches its saturation point eventually – will the release of a $180 million summer blockbuster about zombies starring Brad Pitt finally herald the end of this craze? A veritable death of the undead? I’m not sure, but I know one thing: I’m going to see it.

There are a million and one zombie t-shirts out there – and a lot look very amateurish and corny. But these make me laugh, and are very well done:

“Lawn of the Dead” at Threadless:

“Zombie Protest” at ThinkGeek:

“Throwing Shapes, Eating Brains” at Threadless (Thriller inspired, for all you children of the 80s):

Does the Zombie genre still have legs, (pun intended) or like the fifth season of Happy Days, has it also jumped the Shark?
