'28 Days Later'
(Megan Burns, Bindu De Stoppani, Christopher Eccleston / R / 108 mins / Fox Searchlight)
Overview: A powerful virus is unleashed on the British public following a raid on a primate research facility by animal rights activists. Transmitted in a drop of blood and devastating within seconds, the virus locks those infected into a permanent state of murderous rage. Within 28 days the country is overwhelmed and a handful of survivors begin their attempts to salvage a future, little realizing that the deadly virus is not the only thing that threatens them.
Verdict: '28 Days Later' is a taut, gritty script that boasts enough shocks to keep us squirming — which of our heroes will get it next, and how?! In point of fact, when '28 Days Later' isn't scaring you silly, it invites you to reflect seriously on the fragility of modern civilization. Two films, therein, for the price of one! In truth, this unrelenting horror tale's paranoid genius lies in equating free-floating wrath and physical sickness - hmmm, sounds like a winner to me! And so, to sum up, '28 Days Later' is a frightfully good time!
