  •  Zombies vs Vampires (0+ / 0-)

    I've actually heard it explained as thus:

    Zombies become more popular when people are angry at the conservatives, since a brainless zombie is not going to be making good decisions, and the unwashed masses are threatening to take over the world with their brainlessness.

    Vampires become more popular when people are angry at liberals, since a greedy blood sucker who is probably rich and well educated wants to destroy good people one at a time.

    Both are popular at the moment, which makes sense since both conservatives and liberals are fairly unpopular across the spectrum for various reasons.

    This doesn't take into account the popularity of werewolves, however.  We haven't had a good werewolf movie since Teen Wolf.  So maybe werewolves are popular when the economy is doing well and people are content with politics?
