Product Description

Product Description

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…

Special Features

Even though it's only a single disc, the 28 Days Later DVD includes a lot of very interesting features, including the alternate ending that was shown after the end of the film a couple months into its theatrical run. It's much bleaker, as director Danny Boyle and writer Alex Garland say in their optional commentary. Another alternate ending is almost the same as the theatrical ending but slightly less happy. Most interesting is the "radical" alternate ending that takes an entirely different path midway through the film. It wasn't filmed, however, so Boyle and Garland narrate the action over storyboards, and it's a surprisingly engrossing 11 minutes. Boyle and Garland also did a commentary track for the film, and they talk about how they were able to get the shots of deserted London and why they used the ending they did. There are also six very watchable deleted scenes, and Boyle and Garland's comments range from "great sequence" to "a disgrace." Slightly less relevant is a 24-minute documentary that spends its first 10 minutes on the real-life threat of infectious diseases before recapping the film and discussing such elements as the use of digital video and the boot camp the actors had to attend. If you need any further proof that the DVD was a labor of love, even the stills galleries have commentaries. --David Horiuchi

Bought this on blu ray. The video quality is not up to blu ray standards because of the way the movie was shot. The movie is awesome just not worth it on blu ray. If you have it on DVD, stick with that, if you don't this is a good purchase.

Format: DVD
I just watched this film and am quite perplexed as to how it garnered good reviews and so much attention when it was theatrically released. Shot on digital video, this is an extremely cheap, visually ugly film which rips off George Romero's zombie trilogy, especially elements of Day of the Dead (the weakest of the Romero trilogy) and also adds in what are now hoary cliches from other post-apocalypse films. The film's one inventive touch is that the virally infected don't lumber around aimlesly but are infused with an almost superhuman strength and speed. Other than that, I won't belabor you with my litany of complaints about this film, since there's already a surfeit of negative reviews posted. However, I was particularly offended by the deliberate stupidity of some the plot, such as the infected soldier who is chained up, who you just KNOW is going to get loose to wreak havoc, and the putative hero Jim's act of setting him free, and the whole last act of the film.

Format: DVD
This one was quite influential in the "zombie" horror movie\game genre. Not zombies per say but so close to it, the "infected" were actually fast and agile instead of slow and lumbering. It makes a world of difference in how menacing and scary they are. 28 days later sports a very good suspenseful story that makes you want to see what's next. It has some quite intense moments and some brilliant memorable shots: the deserted streets of London in particular. The acting was quite good from a cast of relative unknowns (at the time). Special mentions must go to the evocative music and how the rain was filmed. It looked amazing and contributed strongly to the atmosphere. Overall, it's one of the best serious horror movies of the start of the 21st century. The only arguable weakness would be the original ending.

Movie = 5/5. Video quality = 3/5. Sadly, it's the best way to see it other than in the theatre. They really need to re-release this with a better digital transfer. Fantastic movie though.

Format: DVD
This movie is good for the first 30 minutes. Then it turns into the same old boring quest for a contrived ending that destroys so many good ideas. It's cool the first time around, but has no replay value. If you've seen it once, you've seen it a million times. You don't learn anything new the second time around. It's pretty low brow and has no metaphorical value. Any intellectual attempt made by the writers is destroyed by the "trip to the country gone wrong" crap-contrived ending that brings absolutely no insight into anything. Apocalyptic movies must have some deeper value than simple smash-n-kill crap-action. The biggest crime this movie is guilty of is OVER-HYPE. This movie has no place in a horror classics list, despite what the back cover would have you believe. Rent, don't buy this one.

28 Day's Later, a really excellent film. The movie is dark, creepy, and intimidating. I have not jumped so high in a long time. I saw this movie near the second film's release, only hearing about the series when the second one came out. I don't remember much about my first viewing, only bits and pieces. For a starter, I remembered it was good, so when Amazon put it on sale, or at a low price anyway's, I had to pick it up.

The video quality is the worst thing about this bluray. The majority of the film was shot on a Canon DV camcorder, so I know why it is not the greatest quality. The film in itself is a really scary movie, and this low quality idea of filming, in my opinion, complemented that. The movie gave me a cloverfield vibe, dark, intense, claustrophobic almost, without having the shaky cam. The film goes from extremely quiet conversations, to a zombie attack, and the way the film was shot compliments it greatly.

The audio quality is pretty good. The film does not have many "epic" scenes. The film is really extraordinary, and is a really special film, but the movie itself is meant to be quiet, and scary, so the audio isn't so explosive. But, trust me on this, when the zombie's cries start crescendo into a full on screech, you will be wanted bad quality. It is scary. The audio is good, but the film itself doesn't necessarily need an amazing audio presentation, and it does, but it is a really good presentation. The near the ending is where the audio gets good though. The audio in the beginning did not need to be explosive, but it picks up as the action does.

The extras are informative. The audio commentary of the director, Danny Boyle, is nice to listen to, his filming process, and such things.

Overall, the movie is amazing.

28 days later is a well made film.it has good performances from its
main actors,it is suspenseful,and there are some scary moments.the
director maintains tension throughout the movie.the make up effects in
the film are very well done,so that the infected look much less than
human,quite horrifying in fact.the action sequences are well done as
are the dramatic moments.this a not a zombie movie per Se,but a movie
about human relations and interaction in the face of what seems like
hopelessness.the most horrifying thing in the movie is its
premise,which is: plague has spread throughout the land,infecting
people and turning them into animalistic creatures,not quite
zombies,but not human either and having no thought other than attacking
and infecting the uninfected.it shows the desperation that some people
are willing to go through to survive.i won't give away any specifics of
the plot.anyway,for me,this is a well crafted movie all around.it is a
deep movie with a message and it asks some very scary questions.highly
recommended 4/5
