THE DOUBLE BLOODFEST ON THIS 2-DISC BOX-SET
'28 DAYS LATER' -
A group of Animal-Rights -Activists attack a primate research centre and release infected monkeys carrying a rage-virus
into the community at large.
The virus takes hold rapidly, over a very short time (28 days) the environment has been seemingly been laid to waste..
After a long period of sedation in a London Hospital 'Jim' (Cillian Murphy) awakes totally unaware of what had happened,
there seems to be no-one else at the Hospital, on the streets of London he goes looking for help but finds them also to be
deserted.
It seems an evacuation has taken place, when he first finds human form they have been infected and have become Zombie
like beings.
Eventually he does link up with a couple of uninfected persons 'Selena' (Naomi Harris) and 'Mark' (Noah Huntley) together
they must try to seek a safe-haven.
'Jim' soon learns the extent of the virus, it seems it has quickly become a World-Wide epidemic ??
He now, with a handful of survivors go forward to seek refuge, unaware this was only the beginning.
There is frequent violence and graphic imagery.
A well made Brit-Horror - Better than average Zombie-Like tale.
TWENTY EIGHT WEEKS LATER -
Human life has been all but wiped out in Britain by the rage-virus, now, 28 weeks later the infected have also died - of starvation,
Britain is now infection-free ??
The American army has moved in to try and restore services and repatriate the mainland.
'Don' (Robert Carlyle) is a survivor who had escaped a frenzied attack on his home and family at the height of the devastating
outbreak.
His Children 'Tammy' (Imogen Poots) and 'Andy' (Mackintosh Muggleton) who had attended boarding-school at the time of the outbreak now return to Britain to reunite with their Father who will have to explain to his Children what had happened to their
Mother.
However unbeknown to 'Don' 'Scarlet' (Rose Byrne) had survived, but how ?
'Scaarlet' though okay in appearance carries the virus that had devastated Britain, it will again spread, and indeed spiral out of
control as it had before.
'Tammy' and 'Andy' are helped to escape the chaos by army-officer 'Doyle' (Jeremy Renner) ....when all control has been lost
have they any real chance of survival ?
The question is, is there any real hope for mankind ? - there will almost certainly be more of this at some stage.
Plenty of blood and guts in this sequel, as we watch the virus again take hold.
Maybe not equal to the first in terms of tension but again a decent Horror-Tale.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 13 April 2014
I love these films, particularly 28 Days Later, real British horror classics! The problem with transferring 28 Days Later to Blu-ray is that the film was deliberately shot on small DV cameras which give it a much more gritty and immersive effect than standard cameras. It means that the Blu-ray version is no better than the standard definition version.

5-stars for the films themselves, but 3-stars for the Blu-ray giving a 4-star rating overall.

This was a present for a horror film lover and apparently it is very good. I would never watch a horror film and do not see why anyone would but if you do like the genre I understand you might like this 2 film collection.
