Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Tense, scary and raw 28 Day’s Later for me is one of the best horror films ever made. Even 17 years later it remains one of the most unsettling films ever made. Danny Boyle, coming off a run that included Trainspotting and The Beach once again showed that he is a director not bound by genre. Handheld, shot on low fi digital video and with a limited budget, Boyle creates a film that feels as real as it get that adds visceral gore, an epic score and a compelling twist on the then very worn Zombie film. Add to that career making performances by Cillian Murphy, Naomie Harris & Christopher Eccleston as well as an impressive debut by writer Alex Garland and you have a near perfect storm. Essential viewing.
