Two Danny Boyle Films this week:

Friday 10th August: 28 Days Later… (2002) – 18, 113 min
Director: Danny Boyle
Starring: Cillian Murphy, Naomie Harris and Christopher Eccleston

Genres: Horror | Sci-Fi | Thriller

Animal activists invade a laboratory with the intention of releasing chimpanzees that are undergoing experimentation, infected by a virus -a virus that causes rage. The naive activists ignore the pleas of a scientist to keep the cages locked, with disastrous results. Twenty-eight days later, our protagonist, Jim, wakes up from a coma, alone, in an abandoned hospital. He begins to seek out anyone else to find London is deserted, apparently without a living soul. After finding a church, which had become inhabited by zombie like humans intent on his demise, he runs for his life. Selena and Mark rescue him from the horde and bring him up to date on the mass carnage and horror as all of London tore itself apart. This is a tale of survival and ultimately, heroics, with nice subtext about mankind’s savage nature.

Each chapter of his story reveals the key to the answer to one of the game show’s questions.
