Product Overview

Includes three killer alternate endings that will haunt you for days, plus a host of shocking extras!

Hailed as the most frightening film since The Exorcist, acclaimed Director Danny Boyle's visionary take on zombie horror "isn't just scary...it's absolutely terrifying" (Access Hollywood). An infirmary patient awakens from a coma to an empty room...in a vacant hospital...in a deserted city. A powerful virus, which locks victims into a permanent state of murderous rage, has transformed the world around him into a seemingly desolate wasteland. Now a handful of survivors must fight to stay alive, unaware that the worst is yet to come...

Editors Note
Note 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.^A gripping and suspenseful horror film with indie production values, shot on digital video, 28 DAYS LATER has a pleasing immediacy. Its actors are primarily young unknowns, its special effects consist of beautiful photography overlays and flashes of light with lots of shadow play, and its settings are rich and dramatic. The soundtrack is one of the film's truest strengths, with excellent music from Brian Eno, Blue States, Grandaddy, and Godspeed You Black Emperor guiding the action from the first minutes through to the last.
Premiere "...28 DAYS LATER is the genuine article, a hard-core horror picture from start to finish....This is a punk rock zombie movie..." 07/01/2003 p.22-3
New York Times "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..." 06/27/2003 p.E1
Los Angeles Times "...Wonderfully, horribly scary....Boyle knows that the world is an unbelievably terrifying place....He never takes us fully out of our reality -- he just throws open the door and watches us scramble..." 06/27/2003 p.C1
Entertainment Weekly "...28 DAYS LATER is a swankily austere piece of jeepers creepers sci-fi....[A] stark and stylish apocalyptic horror film..." 06/27/2003 p.116
Rolling Stone "...Boyle and screenwriter Alex Garland plumb the violence of the mind with slashing wit and shocking gravity. Happy nightmares..." 07/24/2003 p.95
Movieline's Hollywood Life "...28 DAYS LATER is a provocative, scary thriller with timely overtones..." 07/01/2003 p.115
Chicago Sun-Times "...Superior science fiction..." 10/17/2003 p.13
Wall Street Journal "It simply scares us out of our wits, then gets us to apply those wits to an uncommonly intelligent and suspenseful zombie flick." 10/02/2009

ReviewSource ReelViews
Review Danny Boyle, the director of Shallow Grave and Trainspotting, has brought his off-center perspective to this story. Armed with a screenplay written by Alex Garland, Boyle's vision of humanity's twilight has mankind wiped out not by fire, brimstone, and nuclear fallout, but by disease. The living are divided into two categories: the infected, who are more like mindless zombies than human beings, and the survivalists, who eschew making plans, realizing that "staying alive is as good as it gets." The allegorical nature of the movie is impossible to miss. And Boyle touches upon such potentially weighty matters as the fundamental difference between man and beast, and whether human beings are natural killers...28 Days Later is dark, the video quality is dubious (it was shot on digital video to curtail cost and provide a grittier look), and the subject matter is familiar. But the filmmakers counter these questionable qualities with solid performances, an intelligent script, and sure-handed direction. The result is a movie that kept me involved from start to finish.

Review 28 Days Later opens with a group of well-intentioned animal-rights activists "liberating" chimps from a research lab. An ape attacks one of the humans right away, and the virus (and story) is off and running. Cut ahead the titular 28 days later and comatose patient Jim (Cillian Murphy) is waking up, naked, in a London hospital bed. With a weedy beard and unkempt hair, he wanders the hospital's abandoned corridors and makes it outside to a London that's a complete ghost town. No traffic, no people, no sound, just piles of debris, abandoned cars, and kiosks plastered with missing person notices (that bring to mind New York City after 9/ll)...It's hard to introduce any kind of new spin on the zombie genre at this late date. In some ways, 28 Days Later is certainly an homage and tribute to the zombie movies of George Romero, Lucio Fulci, and Lamberto Bava and the apocalyptic visions of The Omega Man and The Last Man On Earth. At the same time, it's a movie that does bring some originality to the mix and stands well on its own merits. Strong performances, solid direction, a kinetic pace, and a morose atmosphere make this a movie that will stay with horror fans for weeks.
