ZOMBIE NATION: If You Like "The Walking Dead," Then You'll Love...

 

A scene from AMC's "The Walking Dead"

Zombie fever is upon us.

Last weekend's premiere of the second season of "The Walking Dead" on AMC drew 7.3 million viewers, making the show a bonafide hit.

All these fans means that there's a hunger for more entertainment with a similarly apocalyptic, survive-at-all-costs feel.

And so, we point you toward a few other shows, books, movies, etc. Some are old, some are new, all aim for the head.

There's a good chance that if you're watching "The Walking Dead," you've seen "Dawn of the Dead" multiple times before, but just in case: don't sleep on what might be the greatest zombie flick of all time, from George Romero and Dario Argento.
Want proof that everyone loves zombies? The literary bard of Brooklyn, Colson Whitehead, just released a zombie novel, "Zone One," that takes place as humanity clears Manhattan following a zombie apocalypse.
Fighting your way through a zombie deluge wouldn't be much fun in real life. But what better premise is there for a video game? "Left 4 Dead" and its sequel pit you and three others in a hectic battle against impressively large hordes of the undead.
