28 Weeks Later

Director: Juan Carlos Fresnadillo 

Rated: R  100minutes

Fox Atomic/DNA Films (11 May 2007)

From IMDb: Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes to plan.

I have to admit, that zombie movies have never been my favourite. I can't explain it. I think my first exposure to zombies was watching Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' when I was a kid. Since then, I've been asked many times "have you seen that Zombie move?" and I always answer "no". 

While surfing the satellite one night for something to watch, I stumbled across this movie. I read the guide's description of the movie and figured, hmm, why not check it out. I have to say, within the first 15 minutes I was hooked. It was one of those movies, that you just couldn't turn away, you had to keep watching to see what happened.

The jist of the movie, as the description says was how a quarantined city tries to survive this virus. Easily spread, by just spitting on people, the people soon start turning into zombies. A father and his kids are reunited, while their father holds a terrible secret about what happened to their mother. 

I found the movie quick paced, fill with action. There were not many parts, where you are sitting and watching and thinking hurry up already,something happen. I thought the special effects, makeup effects quite good as well. 

I'm sure, all the zombie enthusiasts out there, would have a better movie than this to recommend to someone just starting out with zombie based movies, but I was pleasantly impressed with this movie. It sure turned me on to zombies and made a fan out of this horror movie addict. 

Overall, I'm going to give this movie 4/5.

Bidding you bloody nightmares,


  1. I am a HUGE zombie fan and this is on the top of my favs for zombie films. I personally love the original "Night of the Living Dead" and the re-make of "Dawn of the Dead" was fantastic!

  2. I find that I never gave Zombie movies a chance, but I watched this, and then even watched Dawn of the Dead. Would you recommend any other movies to someone just starting out with Zombie movies?

  3. who cares about zombies, check this out, best of all times, helicopter game
