28 Days Later... Review


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

Before 28 Weeks Later (2007) there was 28 Days Later… (2002). 28 Days Later is directed by Danny Boyle, 28 Days Later is simply a fantastic film that puts a new twist on the classic zombie movie. The story is about a man awaking from a coma twenty-eight days after a new virus has wiped out a huge percentage of the general population. Anyone who is infected with the virus and lives seems to become a raging, mindless, homicidal lunatic that tears apart anything moving. Of course, the man meets other survivors, and they begin looking for a way to endure. 28 Days Later storyline makes an impressive statement about the destructiveness of human nature while presenting one of the scariest horror movies made in a long time. 28 Days Later is a must see for everyone.

Bringing the fear of zombies to the next generation, these zombie creatures are the result of genetic research that seems to have been poorly managed allowing a leak to get out, tempted to add a spoiler. The zombie plague in 28 Days Later overruns London and then it seems to take over the world. Jim, a former bike courier, wakes up in a hospital to find everything in it deserted until he comes in contact with the flesh eating creatures. Jim gathers friends found along the way, and together they take a journey to find other human survivors. In this scary movie, the zombie creatures infect you with their blood and with all the blood splatters in this zombie film, it is a miracle not to get the infected blood on you.

Best zombie kill scene: Jim kills a zombie priest by bashing his brains in with Pepsi cans.
