Brendan Gleeson and Cillian Murphy have received a major honour for their film 28 Days Later.

The film is about the societal breakdown following the accidental release of a contagious and shows how the survivors cope with the life they once knew gone.

Rolling Stones have now named the 2002 movie as the greatest horror film of the 21st century.

The film was given the huge honour from the massive magazine because the story grew out of real-world terrors.

“As with many great horror movies, Danny Boyle’s eviscerating zombie thriller grew out of real-world terrors,” a spokesperson for the magazine told the Irish Mirror.

“28 Days Later focused on a handful of survivors including Cillian Murphy and Naomie Harris trying to stay a step ahead of unstoppable hordes of rampaging undead.

“In the wake of 9/11’s jolting tragedy, this prescient horror film also spoke to unconscious anxieties about a world in which simmering tensions and seething paranoia felt like a terrible new normal.”

Meanwhile, Brendan is teaming up with another Irish actor Michael Fassbender for their new gritty film, Trespass Against Us.
