Screenshot from 28 Days LaterOkay, so today’s pick is not exactly festive fare, but 28 Days Later does celebrate the importance of family along the way, and it even has some christmas lights in it! We mentioned this movie recently in Science Not Fiction’s list of the 10 Best Post-Apocalypses: not only is it a great movie in itself, but it also breathed new life into the Zombie Apocalypse sub genre. A small handful of survivors find themselves alone in a world in which nearly everyone else has been turned into a de facto zombie by a virus in this gripping film.

    Dangling…. “nearly everyone else has been turned into a de facto zombie by a virus in this gripping film”

    How did the virus get into the film? Did Kodak put it there? Should we call the CDC?

    Move the participle: “nearly everyone else in this gripping film has been turned into a de facto zombie by a virus” or “In this gripping film, a small handful of survivors find themselves alone in a world in which nearly everyone else has been turned into a de facto zombie.”

    I think the grammar police need to get a life. There was nothing wrong with the sentence structure given the context. If the virus was in “the film,” it would have been improper to refer to it as “this film” because the supposed film was never mentioned in the article until that point. It was a reach at best.

    That’s not even mentioning the fact that the adjective “gripping” would have been misused. Your reading of the sentence assumed 2 mistakes when there were none to begin with.

    Sadly they only have trailers…boo.
