Director Danny Boyle takes us into some serious sh*t in 28 Days Later. He's got a couple of great movies beneath his belt (like the incredible Trainspotting and the one in theaters that everyone's talking about, Slumdog Millionaire), so you can trust me when I say this is not your ordinary zombie flick.
See... I'm not really a huge fan of horror in general, and I've really yet to appreciate the campy zombie sub-genre, so when someone told me this one was a great movie, I was very skeptical. First off, those eyes are not your typical dank and vacant eyes of your typical zombie that even Michael Jackson can outsmart. Rather, these deadbeats are wily animals that move at the speed and collective volume as a scurrying pack of sewer rats. Totally different than what we've been conditioned to expect. That alone is totally f*cked up and scary. What's happening is... some virus is in people's blood and turns them into these crazy animals, and if a drop simply touches your skin, you've got a good 20 seconds to eat a bowl of Chunky Monkey 'cause you gonna be eatin' chunky Bob, Sue and Harry after that.
FilmBender is Funny Movie Reviews. It's a good story and Cillian Murphy is great, as he leads the way... but I gotta say... he's kind of a creepy and f-ed up lookin' dude if you ask me. Anyway, the rest of this movie is chilling and suspenseful as well, so plan to sh*t in your pants and be ready to apologize to your babe if you happen to jump in her lap you p*ssy.
