This science/fiction and thriller film is about the aftermath of a town overrun by the Rage virus that was released when animal rights activist captured an infected chimp from a lab. The virus turns everyone into zombie-like beings with only a few survivors left. Danny Boyle did a great job at directing the film in a way that would set it apart from other zombie movies or shows for that matter. In some ways, it did remind me of the show The Walking Dead, but I generally found it pretty enjoyable and interesting. I would rate this horror movie 4/5 stars for being one of the better zombie movies. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

There are aspects of this movie that are interesting and some even funny. Overall I wasn't thrilled by it. Some aspects are pretty disturbing. This movie offers a scenario where it would basically pass as a plausible situation where something along the lines of zombies could exist. Kudos for that...

Hello, darlings - If you like brutal, gory, vicious zombie movies - 28 Days Later will certainly get your adrenaline pumping. Believe me - This one is a totally horrific fright flick.

This is one of the horror movies that got me into horror movies, even if it isn't "jump scare" scary. It's surprisingly low budget but you'd never know it with the approach Danny Boyle took to the film. Cillian Murphy is a powerhouse of emotion and carries the film beautifully through the darkness of the world he wakes up to. The soundtrack is incredible, with a brilliant use of on of my all_time favorite ambient bands Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

ok zombie movie. At times the story got a little dull and while the zombies are fast, I wish they'd spent more on their look

Cultural Marxist political drivel.

A film that helped kick off the Zombie Renaissance.

I consider this to be the zombie version in the horror trilogy that if it really did happen, this is probably a more realistic view of how it would go down. The other two i relate it to in that fashion are Day Breakers to vampires (and idk about the twilight series so if there is one called day breakers, that isn't it. i'm talking about the one with Ethan Hawke and Willem DaFoe) and Attack the block to aliens. All three are great movies and would make an awesome triple feature. Not insulting intelligence and actual good stories.
