Has this one been done? Anyway, love both of these movies but I like the first better. It’s a better-made film overall and it is genuinely scary. The opening sequence in Weeks is amazing though, better than any scene in Days.

28 Days Later is a great film. It's a genuinely novel approach to an old sort of genre and subgenre that really cleverly withholds information and scope to make this huge scenario intimate and mysterious while being convincing on both fronts. And that fairly early use of digital cinematography was cool and embraced that look as an asset for the time and style of the movie rather than trying to make it look more high-end professional. That movie is pretty much successful in all aspects.
28 Weeks Later is a solid sequel, but it's sort of its own thing. It's tonally somewhat different and expands on the exposition, which makes it somewhat less interesting because it's more ordinary. I'm not sure that there was any other way to approach it, and it's about as good as a sequel could have been expected to be.
It's a solid follow up, and a pretty good film in its own right. But it's not on the level as the first film.
