Vikings Are the New Zombie: Vikings v. Vikings; Vikings v. Indians; Vikings v. Misunderstood Monsters; Vikings v. Digital Monsters; Vikings v. Aliens; Vikings v. Their Wives [via]
We went through that post-9/11 period where zombie films filled our apocalyptic desires. After the 1990s zombie drought, we had a metric f**kton of zombie films (28 Days Later, Dawn of the Dead, Resident Evil, House of the Dead, etc), perhaps because they are the one genre that is inherently apocalyptic. The zombie films seem to be trailing off, now. Their replacement? Vikings! Why vikings? I have no pseudo-intellectual explanation for that. Suggestions?
