There is something special and that makes us very happy in the way that the British make films , so we want to share with you 10 films whose roots are in London   that are essential viewings, you have to see them!

1.- 28 Days Later (28 Days Later) – Danny Boyle, 2002

Long before The Walking Dead reinvigorated the zombie genre in America, 20 Days Later it reinvented the genre with a monstrous viral outbreak in a London devoid of human life. Director Danny Boyle popularized the genre again with Cillian Murphy , Naomie Harris   and Christopher Eccleston in the lead.28 days

2.- Dracula (Dracula) – Alan Gibson, 1972

Legendary British film production company Hammer was known for a series of dark horror pieces that was propelled by Christopher Lee ‘s stellar performance as Count Dracula . This performance was carried out for the sixth time in this Hammer film, starring Lee in the title role of him and, with his on-screen nemesis Van Helsing , Peter Cushing . Instead of tormenting villagers or Victorian high society, this time the victims are a group of British hippies from the 70s.Dracula

3.- Jane Eyre –  Cary Fukunaga (2011)

Fresh film adaptations of old novels, like Charlotte Brontë’s, are a testament to our obsession with old-school Britain. A story about two lovers from opposite social castes set in a picturesque landscape of English country houses. In this movie Jane is impeccably played by Mia Wasikowska . After suffering terrible treatment from the teacher and the nuns at the boarding school where she is staying, Jane easily falls into the arms of the new boss, Edward Rochester ( Michael Fassbender ).jane eyre

4.- Love Actually – Richard Curtis, 2003

What would a list of exemplary British films be without a mention of Hugh Grant ? Love Actually makes us wish we were in Great Britain living the story that his characters live. Intelligent, human, versatile and a very good romantic comedy . Grant plays the leader of Britain, a man who by chance falls in love with a girl with thick ankles and a plump behind, upending centuries of English beauty

5.- Psychomania – Don Sharp, 1973

Following in the footsteps of American classics like Easy Rider , the Brits offered their own twist on the bikesploitation madness with Psychomania . A group of crazy bikers enjoy doing evil wherever they go, but Tom , leader of the group, is not good for that. The gang makes a suicide pact with the Devil thanks to Tom’s mother, who practices as a spiritualist. Taking the crude approach of A Clockwork Orange , Psychomania is an unpleasantly enjoyable offering .psychomania

6.- Zombies Party (Shaun of the Dead) – Edgar Wright, 2004

The British have a very developed sense of humor and, assuming that the world is going to come to a violent end, with a zombie apocalypse , we would like to spend our last hours of life with a group of English survivors like those of Zombies Party . This remarkable horror comedy was the starting point in the career of the hilarious Simon Pegg . The film boasts darkly funny twists and even some truly distressing scenes that are right up there with the undead genre.Zombies-Party

7.- Snatch: pigs and diamonds (Snatch) – Guy Ritchie, 2000

With an all-star cast that includes Jason Statham , Brad Pitt and Benicio Del Toro , Snatch is a non-stop explosion in all manner of suspicious and criminal scenes across London (and beyond, too). No matter how many shootouts, bare-knuckle boxing matches, and stolen jewelry permeate the plot, it’s a race against the flow of absolute adrenaline .snatch

8.- V for Vendetta (V for Vendetta) – James McTeig ue, 2005

This futuristic political thriller is based on the legendary comic, released amid Margaret Thatcher’s conservatism and the British riots of the 1980s. In the wake of this adaptation of genius Alan Moore ‘s work , herds of anti-establishment netizens known as “ Anonymous” have begun wearing the masks worn by the movie character Guy Fawkes , the real-life revolutionary who conspired to bomb the House of Lords in 1605. Full of elegance, wit and drama, V for Vendetta shows off with great clarity a timeless story .V for Vendetta

9.- Velvet Goldmine – Todd Haynes, 1998

America may have invented rock n’ roll , but it was Britain that first brought us the essence of glam , with its technicolor wave and inseparable addictions. An extravagant and sensual party set in early 1970s London , this fictional Todd Haynes biopic relives the meteoric rise and fables of hulking rock stars like David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Lou Reed . Latex, wigs, shiny platforms and heavy-duty makeup go down well with actors Ewan McGregor and Jonathan Rhys-Myers . In fact, the film garnered a BAFTA Award for Best Costume Design ..velvet

 10.- Wallace & Gromit. The Curse of the Were-Rabbit – Steve Box, Nick Park, 2005

We end with this stop-motion British feature film , which tells us the story of a clumsy inventor and his faithful canine companion, a pairing that is a big part of his appeal. Thanks to numerous whimsically chaotic devices, Box and Park make a wholly imaginary tale with cleverly executed animation . An exquisite miniature environment that will delight our eyes.
