After Hours #16

June 25: With Adam and Matty both doing some traveling this week, Filmspotting forgoes its usual weekly format for a Listener Feedback-focused edition of After Hours, including more thoughts on the best Directors of the Decade. Plus, Matty goes Triumph the Insult Comic Dog on some zombie-definition obsessed listeners who take issue with his classification of Danny Boyle's "28 Days Later."

- Josh in Normal, Illinois, corroborates our take on "28 Days Later" as a zombie movie, citing Glenn Kay's "Zombie Movies: The Ultimate Guide." Kay lists it as one of the best zombie movies ever. Plus, there's this - "Zombies can run: why 28 Days Later is a zombie movie after all."
