28 Days Later

28 Days Later ★★★★

I went into this not at all expecting to like it this much. I assumed it would be exciting at the very least, but I underestimated how human it would actually feel. Multiple moments touched me, which honestly blindsided me a bit. This movie set the archetypes for most of 2000’s post-apocalypse fiction at large for a reason I guess lol. The tunnel sequence made me want to puke from anxiety. I absolutely adore the shoddy digital photography. It imbues the film with a sense of grimy realism while also still retaining this true fever dream quality. I don’t necessarily have a lot left to say but yeah, I loved this.

Bonus thought: Naomie Harris looks so badass in her trench coat.
