Here’s the statistical evidence.
Vampire LARP games: Old and Busted.
Zombie Walks: The New Hotness.
I have mixed feelings about this development. Not very strong mixed feelings, because mostly, I don’t care. It seems to me that shambling around demanding brains would get old even faster than painting your fingernails black and listening to Dead Can Dance. On the other hand, it’s hard to believe that zombie walkers can take themselves particularly seriously, and that’s a bonus.
There was a funny CatScratch episode where Waffle, trying to create chip dip, read the Scottish Book of the Dead (apparently one of Gordon’s books) instead of a cookbook, and he created a sour-cream-heavy goopy aberration which ended up creating dozens of zombies from a nearby cemetery.
(I could also mention Shaun of the Dead, remakes of classic zombie movies, guides to zombie survival, etc.)
Bottom line, zombies in, vampires out.
