28 Days Later

Director: Danny Boyle Run Time: 112 min. Format: DCP Rating: R Release Year: 2002

Starring: Cillian Murphy, Noah Huntley, Naomie Harris, Brendan Gleeson

An experiment in anger unleashes a deadly rage on London after an infected chimpanzee escapes its medical lab. 28 day later, a bike messenger named Jim wakes up from a coma alone in a hospital and enters a deserted post-apocalyptic England. He meets a group of survivors and joins them in the perilous search of a safe place to live while also trying to adjust to how the world has drastically changed. 28 Days Later ushered in a zombie film into the twentieth century and even though Danny Boyle states that the film is not about zombies, the film’s allegorical narrative comments on society, trust, and the tenuous balance between order and chaos as much as the work of George A. Romero.
