28 days later

28 Days Later (2002) by Danny Boyle, 113 min, video, United States

Set in Britain at the beginning of the 21st Century, 28 Days Later unfolds as a timely reinvention of the zombie horror genre, in which a disease being tested on laboratory monkeys escapes into public and begins infecting humans. The epidemic quickly sweeps the planet and plunges those who attempt to cure it into a post-apocalyptic world that breathes life to modern day anxieties about bioterrorism and the end of civilization.
