28 Days Later

Four weeks after a mysterious, incurable virus spreads throughout the UK, a handful of survivors try to find sanctuary.

Animal activists invade a laboratory with the intention of releasing chimpanzees that are undergoing experimentation, infected by a virus -a virus that causes rage. The naive activists ignore the pleas of a scientist to keep the cages locked, with disastrous results. Twenty-eight days later, our protagonist, Jim, wakes up from a coma, alone, in an abandoned hospital. He begins to seek out anyone else to find London is deserted, apparently without a living soul. After finding a church, which had become inhabited by zombie like humans intent on his demise, he runs for his life. Selena and Mark rescue him from the horde and bring him up to date on the mass carnage and horror as all of London tore itself apart. This is a tale of survival and ultimately, heroics, with nice subtext about mankind's savage nature.

Digital Masterpiece

Those who saw the original "Dawn of the Dead", will agree, zombie movies have come a long way, and is almost nearing perfection, although, this one isn't so much a zombie movie, but the writer to my opinion did fool around with the idea, and those of Mr. Romero and his friends. 28 Days Later was the first movie to be shot entirely with a digital movie recorder (thanks Joe!), as you might have noticed if you saw the movie on the big screen. The sound and visuals wasn't that brilliant, but back home you won't notice the difference between this movie and the next! 28 Days contains everything that a good (or bad) horror flick needs, deserted hospitals, dead bodies, lots of blood and of course, lots of zombies! Overall a great production, another triumph for Danny Boyle and for independent movies. It is truly scary and graphical, the people sitting next to me in the theatre, left after only 15 minutes, so be warned. In the end, human endurance triumphs over the virus and the rage!

Infectious

The copy at my local MrVideo outlet is never booked out. No one seems to give much attention to this film at all. Why?! They cinematography is great and its really tense stuff. I love British comedy but their horror is sometimes even better. The features on this film include an interesting documentary, deleted scenes and a rather boring commentary track. I love the fact that there is no real happy ending, no hero that saves the day! Just death and empty victories... A refreshing change from all that Hollywood spam... All of you who did the 2year London thing will find the scenes in a deserted city, M25 and A2 fascinating. For goodness sake people, this is ”Trainspotting” meets “the Beach” how can it not be good? The sad fact is that it’s NOT AS good as the abovementioned film & book. But it IS still GOOD.
