For 31 in 31: Day 7 the movie chosen is “28 Days Later” directed by Danny Boyle and written by Alex Garland. A zombie movie that isn’t the usual walking dead, 28 Days Later offers a new version of an old, and still firgtening moster. After an incurrable virus outbreak in the UK we follow a group of survivors who are seeking food and shelter from what has become a terrible and rough world.
Being a fan of zombie movies has directed me to watch many old and newer zombie movies, but 28 Days Later stays within my favorites because it is a look at something that could potentially happen in the world today. Zombies are used in many ways within the world, but nonetheless still something that scares enough people to think up “what would happen if” scenarios. Although these zombies are what people refer to as”runners” they are still the flesh eating, swarming group of virus carriers we have all come to love and fear.
If given the chance I highly suggest watching this movie, and if you’ve already seen it I say it never hurts to watch it again.
