    Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later, I've just discovered, is probably the best 'zombie,' film of all time. The film follows four survivors of an epidemic as they try and stay alive.

    The film is beautifully crafted by Boyle, with Alex Garland's gritty script being honoured on screen with masterful direction and striking cinematography. As well as a chaotic, hauntingly melancholy soundtrack, this film works in how rooted in reality it is. The violence is violent and the morals are questionable.…

    Night Terrors – Hoop-Tober!

    Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later… is an indictment of a world gone mad — mad with rage, fear, and power — the zeal that has created and maintained it, and the apathy that has resulted. It's about that thin line between passion and anger.

    Twenty-eight days after a mysterious, incurable virus spreads throughout the UK, Jim awakens in a hospital. He leaves his room, stumbles around the building, and finds no one. In fact, it seems…

    28 Days Later is a gritty zombie apocalypse movie, both in story but also in cinematography. The movie is filmed in the low quality DV cam, which adds to the realism and the depressing setting.
    After a 3rd watch I have to conclude that the drama is overdone and a bit annoying.
    Still, a great movie in this genre with beautiful and memorable opening scenes.

    (October Vibes '14 List)

    My main problem with any apocalyptic themed film has always been that human nature is not portrayed correctly. Where most films failed, 28 Days Later succeeded. Human nature will force us to be heartless and disgusting if a global disaster like a zombie apocalypse occurs. More people will die from being killed by one another, than the actual "virus". This film illustrates that when desperation and survival is mixed with disgusting human tendencies, something far worse…

    HOOP-TOBER #7:

    Halfway through this film I realized two things:
    1. I don't think I like Danny Boyle's style
    2. I really enjoy this movie

    These contradictory feelings were put aside for the most part, for I genuinely believe that 28 Days Later is a solid zombie thriller that manages to be tense consistently throughout by the use of excellent filmmaking techniques. There is no doubt that Danny Boyle knows how to make a film, but something about the way…

    What starts out as a very poorly filmed movie with an 80's flavour, ends up being an epic story about zombies, violence and revenge.

    Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later was frightening, chill-inducing, and terrifying. No zombie movie gives the feeling of despair and loneliness as well as this movie did. Cillian Murphy's performance in this movie was very captivating, along with the supporting cast. The soundtrack, was absolutely perfect, and the highlight of the movie. John Murphy and Danny Boyle are a great pair. The cinematography in the movie was also very well done and very aesthetically pleasing. The third act of the movie took an odd turn and slowed down a bit, but the ending was great. Overall, a great movie!

    Intimate, eery and unsettling, Danny Boyle's take on a genre that has been portrayed to death is magnificent in it simple nature. The shots of an emtpty Central London were incredible in their own right especially with the aesthetic of the canon XL1. Brilliant as well in its story of degraded human nature, performances were strong to create a beautifully interesting watch.
