A worthy sequel that will scare and shock

I didn't think director Fresnadillo could top the first one but he managed to make the movie both entertaining and frightful at the same time. There are plenty of scares that will knock you off your seats and paired up with the emotional struggles of scared people trying to stay alive, you will find this movie to be deeper than the first. The raw camera work that we saw in the first movie was also used in this one and it helped to bring the characters closer to reality.
The best part about this movie is how it tested the idea of what it really means to be human. It is not just a mindless zombie movie but instead a struggle or morals, emotions and what people will do to stay alive. To me, this is why 28 Weeks Later is a must see even if you are not a lover of horror films. There are things in this movie that non-horror fanatics will enjoy even if those scenes are meshed in between some blood and gore.
