28 Days Later (2002) Dir. Danny Boyle
To borrow a phrase from the hipster community, I've been watching zombie movies since before they were cool. Before you correct me, I know this isn't a true “zombie” movie. George A. Romero gets the credit in my book for the modern zombie movie and therefore I follow his rules when discussing the undead: slow-moving, mindless creatures driven by the primal need to feed. I GOT IT, nerds.
