Sadly True. Although you could probably find a great deal of little flicks that served as inspiration as well. I think it's that most people either haven't seen those movies or they just fall asleep during them, like me. Never once made it through "Dawn" or "Day" without a quick nap.
Still, damn fine movie.

I can't remember for sure but I think Doyle said he intentionally did that. I could be wrong.
It doesn't really matter. I like Boyle and I like this movie. There's a lot worse films he could've borrowed from. I just get irritated with film critics writing articles and seemingly not knowing what they're talking about.

Also: Robert Carlyle was offered the role of Major West. Nice to note since he pops up in the second movie.

I did not know that. Carlyle was great in Ravenous. I agree!
I LOVE Ravenous.
As do I. A truly underrated movie. I think the last time I saw it was here. Shocked Been awhile. I agree!

tiny bit more trivia: One day. the stage hands forgot to clean up the bodies in the pit. A local woman saw them and called the cops who then interrogated the crew about their activities.

Did everyone catch 28 Weeks Later? I haven't seen it since the theater. I enjoyed the hell out of it when I saw it. Curious to see if it still wows me.

You can still occasionally find that DVD for $2-$3. Very underrated.

I watched once in the theater and once at home. Not quite as good at home as that first time in the theater, but still holds up well enough.

It's been awhile since I've heard anything about it but I believe the director for Ravenous and Carlyle are supposed to be doing a movie based on the infamous 19 th century English body snatchers...whose names escape me at the moment.
