The guys wake up from a great 28 day nap in a deserted London on this week’s podcast on Danny Boyle’s 2003 horror classic, 28 Days Later… The Bit Players look back at how the film went on to expand and influence not only the zombie film genre but horror as a whole, whether or not the film’s dissonant halves ultimately mesh well or not, unfortunate child acting, how Boyle’s choice to shoot the film in low quality digital video makes for more poignant (if pixelated) scares, and more. They spend a lot time comparing the zombies of the film to others across film’s history, pitting them together in a battle royale of brain feasting.
