Episode 28: 28 Days Later...

It's the rage...VIRUS! This week, on The Fly Paper Dungeon.

I provide a feature-length commentary to Danny Boyle's post-apocalyptic nightmare. 28 Days Later is often credited with reviving the zombie sub-genre, and rightly so. Although many may consider the "rage infected" to not be zombies. One thing is certain, this film did breath new life into a classic movie monster. It also revitalized the "Man wakes up, and the world has gone to hell," concept, as written about in such novels as Shelley's The Last Man, Wyndham's Day of the Triffids, and Matheson's I Am Legend.

This film is also an homage to such genre favorites as Night of The Living Dead, The Last Man on Earth, The Omega Man, Romero's original version of The Crazies.

Sit back, strap on your biohazard suit, and get ready for the plague!

As always, you can listen to the infectious goodness here. Or, you can download it from
