If there’s one thing that proves Danny Boyle’s continued staying power and endless popularity 28 days later better than anything, the zombie movie label is guaranteed to evoke a reaction from someone dear to heart, and the argument is still sparking debate 20 years later.

To avoid causing trouble, we’re dubbing the instant classic a post-apocalyptic horror centered around a viral outbreak that turns ordinary people into frightening, fast-paced, and unrelenting savage beasts. However, sprinting zombies have been everywhere you look ever since, but that’s just one of the many lasting legacies left by the phenomenally dark thriller.

In fact, Redditors are in the midst of celebrating the many highlights of 28 days later in an ongoing thread, and funnily enough, it doesn’t take long for someone to bring up the whole “it’s not a zombie movie” discourse in the comments. We’ll ignore that, however, and instead note how well it’s holding up after two decades, with Boyle’s frantic cinematography turning the empty streets of London into a war zone where there’s only one winner – and it’s not the human populace.

Questions remain as to whether or not the final act survives the landing after the opening two-thirds flirt with grandeur, but we’ll be damned if it doesn’t get dark as hell once Christopher Ecclestone and the rest of his platoon arrive on the scene. 28 weeks later was a worthy sequel in parts, but it still stings days Supporters all speaking of Boyle to return for the long-discussed 28 months later has brought nothing so far.

At this rate it will be 28 years laterbut at least in chronological context it will make sense. An undisputed apocalyptic classic remains in the highest blood-soaked esteem
