28 Days Later has been voted the Best British Horror film in our recent poll, as chosen by you.

From our shortlist, the 2002 zombie horror, directed by Danny Boyle, received 45% of your votes, with The Wicker Man coming second with 22%. Joint third came Don’t Look Now and The Descent with 13% of the votes, with Carry On Screaming ranking last with a measly 4%.

Starring Cillian Murphy, 28 Days Later tells the story of the breakdown of society after the accidental release of a highly contagious virus. 

It was shot on DV (Canon XL1 cameras) for aesthetic and logistical reasons, allowing the crew to set up quickly and shoot desolate exteriors. They were allowed to close small sections of London in the early hours of the morning, including as Westminster Bridge and Piccadilly Circus.

The film spawned the 2007 sequel 28 Weeks Later, starring Robert Carlyle, which filmed on location in London and at 3 Mills Studios.
