A good one to watch on Halloween Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Danny Boyle, the director of "Trainspotting" and "Slumdog Millionaire", here manages to create a very creepy and scary tale on a very small budget. The movie begins with a group of animal rights activists who break into a primate research center to free a group of chimpanzee's who have been subjected to horrific testing. A researcher begs them not to release the chimps; they have been infected with "rage" and, if released, will spread this terrible virus. But the activists disregard the researcher's pleas.

Twenty-eight days later, in a hospital in London, Jim (Cillian Murphy) emerges from a long coma to find the hospital entirely empty. He stumbles onto the streets of London to find them equally empty. He strays into a church and their encounters a priest who appears to have lost his mind and is bent on savagely attacking him. He bashes the priest and flees, finally encountering two normal people who take him in and explain what has happened -- people infected with "rage" have destroyed society. The remaining handful of healthy people are in an unending battle for their lives. The receive a radio broadcast from Manchester promising sanctuary, so they head for that destination ... but what they encounter there may be even more disturbing.

"28 Days Later" is wonderfully tense and atmospheric and takes the time to develop characters about which the viewer comes to care. I had two quibbles with the film. First, while the few survivors necessarily are quite a cagey crew, on a couple occasions they do something very stupid and the viewer knows that they are about to be attacked by "the infected". It strained credulity to think that they would behave so foolishly. Second, the screenwriters littered the script with f-bombs. Its always "f***ing" this and "f***ing" that. All the swearing becomes very, very tiresome. Nonetheless, I can recommend "28 Days Later" to a mature audience; it is a truly frightening film that is much more than merely manipulative.
