Danny Boyle
Released:
2002
Rating:
R

28 Days Later is about the breakdown of society four weeks after a disease called 'Rage' is unleashed. When a British animal rights group disregards the warning by a scientist working with a group of infected chimps, they release the group of primates who carry the 'Rage' virus. 28 days later a confused Jim awakens from a coma in an abandoned London hospital. Jim finds himself surrounded by death and disease with only a handful of survivors, including Selena, Mark, Frank, and his daughter, Hannah. The group journey through London where they face hordes of 'Rage' victims, and search desperately for signs of life. With supplies running low and tensions running high, will Jim and the others be able to endure the hardships of survival, or will they fall victim to the 'Rage'?
