Great sequel!

OK, I admit it. I'm a zombie-buff. I like zombie flicks but I'm also quite picky in what flicks pass through my bullshit filter. Land of the Dead, for example, was one of those who did'nt pass. 28 weeks later did. And then some.

28 weeks later does what "days" couldn't pull off. This said, no pun intended for 28 days later - it was an alright movie - but "weeks" is far more claustrophobic, intense, scary and gritty than its predecessor.

It all starts of with a bang, cools down for a while, everything goes down the sh***er, then ends with a bang. Great actors, almost everyone is more or less unknown, to me anyways and they all do a great job! The thing I like best about the movie is that its pretty unpredictable. And that, my friends, is rare in this line of business.
