28. 28 Days Later (2002)
Danny Boyle’s 2002 horror film brought the zombie movie back into popularity—in fact, you could even say he reanimated the dead genre. 28 Days Later puts a modern spin on the classic mythology of the walking dead, following the story of a biological outbreak that turns ordinary people into a mindless, rage-filled horde ravenous for human flesh.
Like all the best horror movies, this film comments on some aspect of real-life society. In Boyle’s vision of the zombie apocalypse, human survivors can be just as monstrous as the zombies during the collapse of civilization.
