28 Days Later
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Danny Boyle


Danny Boyle (SHALLOW GRAVE, TRANSPOTTING) directs this post-apocalyptic thriller set in London after a deadly, Ebola-like virus has swept through the city. Jim (Cillian Murphy), a bicycle messenger who was in an accident just days before the outbreak, is one of very few survivors who awakes 28 days later to a city that has been evacuated and is now utterly lifeless. He wanders the vacant streets of London feeling as if he's trapped in a never-ending hallucination. However, upon entering a church that is littered with dead bodies, he discovers that he is not alone--"the infected" are still living. They are violently sick, fast-moving, bloodthirsty zombies who travel at night in ravenous packs. Jim manages to escape "the infected" and locate a band of survivors--Selena (Naomie Harris), Hannah (Megan Burns), and Frank (Brendan Gleeson)--and they join forces searching for solutions, clinging to hope that somewhere healthy humanity thrives.

Press

"...28 DAYS LATER is the genuine article, a hard-core horror picture from start to finish....This is a punk rock zombie movie..."

- Glenn Kenny, Premiere

"When 28 DAYS LATER is not scaring you silly, it invites you to reflect seriously on the fragility of modern civilization....Mr. Boyle has hardly lost his sly, provocative perversity or his ear for the rhythms of unchecked violence..."

- A. O. Scott, New York Times
