28 Days Later

A still from 28 Days Later. A man in blue scrubs stands with his back to the viewer. In the background is a London streetscape empty of people and littered with trash.

Two Nerds decided to watch 28 Days Later again, partially because I wanted to see how closely it mapped to John Wyndham’s The Day of the Triffids — from which writer Alex Garland avowedly lifted the opening — and partially because I have a thing about child zombies. (You can read my round-up here.) We talk a lot about child zombies and how they tend to be used very specifically and pointedly in narrative, and I manage to get up on my hobby horse about Hershel from The Walking Dead.
