Marketers Cashing In On The Undead
It may signal the end of the world, but zombies have turned out to be big business. The horror genre has been with us from the 50’s and it continues to fascinate generation after generation. With critical and rating successes like AMC’s The Walking Dead, and movies including 2009‘s Zombieland, merchandizers have found that the public loves the idea of either being or killing the undead.
Here are just a few of the products out there:
- Halloween Costumes
- Apocalypse Knife Kits
- Zombie Ammo
- Zombie Targets
- Zombie Baby Yard Decorations
- Zombie Video Games
- Zombie Themed Firearms
The government (CDC) has even tapped into the craze and created a disaster preparedness website with a zombie theme!
