5.0 out of 5 stars good for a horror wimp, 1 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 28 Days Later/28 Weeks Later [DVD] (DVD)
I have watched 28 Days Later, I am not a great horror movie fan and found watching this, quite stressful, in a good way. I was on a number of occasions surprised by the director not going for the easy fright, or not going for it in the way I expected. I am too much of a horror wimp to give this 5 stars, but I think it is quite a good movie.

Also 28 days has an excellent cast each delivering their roles very well. Mr Ecclestone is in a very Ecclestonian role. Very like a more modern version of the Day of the Triffids series (1981).

**EDIT** Now watched 28 weeks and changed from 4 to 5 stars. Excellent cast again, younger actors were brilliant. Cant remember the name of the actor who plays dad, do not usually like him in anything, but I though he did both parts of his role well in this. As mentioned I am a horror wimp, so was literally hiding behind my hands at times but the story and pacing carried me through.

Hello 'tiredoldgit', thank you for your review.
The actor who played the father is Robert Carlyle.
If you are a 'horror wimp' its probably not worth recommending to you The Descent (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD] [2005] which is in my view Neil Marshall's best horror film and certainly left me in a sweat after watching it.
Marshall also directed Dog Soldiers,which had some humour---Descent does not!
But it is unusual in that it has an all female cast and a superb job was done by all of them in horrendous conditions.

Thank you that looks well worth trying. I don't think Robert Carlyle gets the right parts or writers or something, he can be so good in things like this and a Cracker episode he did.
