28 Days Later

28 Days Later

Danny Boyle has returned to the director's chair today as Trance has hit the big screen.

Our look at his best movies throughout his career continues and it is 28 Days Later that we are concentrating on.

2002 saw Boyle return to the horror genre with the zombie movie that really put British horror back on the map.

The zombie movie was considered pretty old news when this movie was released and yet 28 Days Later breathed new life into a rather tired genre.

From start to finish Boyle just brought a freshness to it as he balanced, horror, gore and comedy elements to bring his own unique style to this genre.

The film featured some of the most iconic film scenes of the decade; the deserted streets of London being the one that particularly stands out.

Boyle has always been able to capture and deliver such powerful images and seeing Cillian Murphy standing alone outside the Houses of Parliament really does send shivers down your spine.

This is a film that pays homage to the horror movies of the past but still has a very contemporary edge - Boyle really does make you feel like you are watching something new.

28 Days Later was met with huge critical acclaim when it was released back in 2002 and was a huge box office hit here in the UK.

The movie was made for just five million quid and went on to take in excess of $82.7 - finding success in the States.

28 Days Later remains one of the best British horror movies of all time and it really did see Boyle back on top.

Trance is out now.
