Product Overview

Prepare yourself for the ultimate in visceral horror and apocalyptic doom with this exclusive DVD 2-pack! From 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment comes two films where zombies rule the land and no human is safe: 28 DAYS LATER and 28 WEEKS LATER!

28 DAYS LATER: 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...

28 WEEKS LATER: The film picks up six months after the Rage virus has spread throughout the city of London. The United States Army has restored order and is repopulating the quarantined city, when a carrier of the Rage virus enters London and unknowingly re-ignites the spread of the deadly infection, wreaking havoc on the entire population. The virus is not yet dead, and this time it's more dangerous than ever!

Review [Days] 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 [Days] 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.

Review [Weeks] The grisly 28 Weeks Later... jettisons the director, cast, and recurring characters from the original film -- Danny Boyle's 2003 nightmare vision 28 Days Later -- and keeps only the franchise's dynamic plot device: a rage virus that, in seconds, turns unsuspecting citizens into violent zombies. It's an effective way to wipe the slate clean before more blood is splattered across it...Spanish filmmaker Juan Carlos Fresnadillo structures his picture less like a conventional sequel and more like a "next chapter" in the horror saga, which might explain why this fresh, energized, and clever installment works better than it should...The movie improves as the survival prognosis of the main characters worsens. And the way it's currently structured, the 28 franchise could last forever: The ending of this segment teases a potential location shift for the inevitable 28 Months installment.
