    RE: When will the zombie/vampire genre end?

    Why should it end? I like the way writers create new characters and develope the old ones. I like creativity and they actually are. At least writers, I don't know about film directors.
    I've read recently "Soulless" and I was really surprised by her imagination and plainness of the characters. Really nicely done.

    RE: When will the zombie/vampire genre end?

    I'm getting a little tired of zombies and vampires for breakfast ,lunch and dinner too, but I think the recent outbreak of bath salts cannibalism is stirring up interest in zombies again.

    There are people posting online that they think bath salts cannibals are the start of a real life zombie apocalypse.

    My teenage daughter thinks the vampire trend isn't going to die down unless something even scarier than vampires is created/discovered.

    I miss outer space horror, like the movie Aliens. There hasn't been a good space horror movie in a while. Dead Space would make a cool movie if there weren't so many gross parts.

    RE: When will the zombie/vampire genre end?

    I think these genres will ebb and flow like they always have. I think the vampire is dying down a bit, but the zombies are still going with the Walking Dead. I lost interest in True Blood right after season one, but I'm waiting for the next season of WD this October. The vampire genre got really "complicated" so to say and unreasonably emo. I guess that why I like the Hellsing franchise and lets face it if you make the zombie genre too complicated somebody is going it wrong.

    I agree with ACSAPA about the space horrors, Alien and Aliens were great movies. Event Horizon made a feeble attempt at this and Prometheus was pretty good, but they over burden the story by making it a stand alone movie and a prequel. They did make a prequel animated movie of DS called Dead Space: Downfall and another one called Dead Space: Aftermath for DS2.

    RE: When will the zombie/vampire genre end?

    I lost hope with the vampire movies when Twilight came out. I'm not the biggest fanatic when it comes to horror/supernatural movie genre, but I do enjoy a bit of realism amongst the chaos; having VAMPIRES sparkle when exposed to light is not only "unrealistic", but just stupid. Probably the reason why I enjoy thriller better than horror.
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose; the boy doesn't always know. At some point the boy then becomes an adult, and learns what he was able to become. Joy and sadness will forever accompany this. He is confronted with a choice; when this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy; the boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream.". For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him.

    We must remember...all men were once boys.

    I never did get into the genre but I am surprised to hear you say this and yet its refreshing. People are fascinated with it though. And since there is nothing new under the sun, maybe it adds just enough of a twist to keep people hooked. I guess they could say the whole normal human experience genre has been beaten to death.

    While I agree with you, I really don't see what realism has to do with vampires

    But yeah, the genre won't be going away, and barring those few that we shall not name, I don't see why should it. I don't watch vampire or zombie movies that much myself, but it's a massive genre with large following, so few bad apples here and there won't poison the whole well. Or something like that.

    I agree that many zombie movies just go over the top with stupidity, while at the same time trying to take themselves seriously, but usually it's all for entertainments, so I let is just slide.
