28 days later

[ #14039 ]

Finally got round to watching "28 Days Later" tonight. I really liked it, I'm a big fan of horror that doesn't need to use gore to hide the fact it's not scary.

  • I liked how they made zombies super fast instead of shambling buffoons. I really like zombie flicks (Living Dead series was great and I liked the Return of the Living Dead series for some reason as well).

    Sure I could punch holes in the story, but it was hooked together enough to be fun. In action flicks and such I just want the story to be internally consistent. It doesn't need to be possible just consistent. Which is why I don't like Episode 1. I didn't need an explanation for the Force. I just need to kn
    • I thought that, overall, this was a pretty good movie as well. I think the "who are the real monsters" message near the end was a little overbearing and dull, though.

      The one internal consistency problem I had with the movie was this - if these people are so damned enraged by the virus, why don't they attack each other? But, other than that nitpick, pretty good flick.

  • Apparently they've changed the ending [cnn.com] since it came out. I saw the less dark version, which was worth seeing. I agree with you absolutely about restraint in use of on-screen, clearly shot violence (which usually ends up looking silly). Goo and gore technology has ruined horror movies.
    • A bit of goo can make a film though, for example Bad Taste [imdb.com] :)

      I got to see both endings. I have to admit that I'm a sucker for a happy ending but I also liked the alternative - it ended with a really well done shot which seemed to fit the film better.
