28 Days Later” is a 2002 British post-apocalyptic horror film directed by Danny Boyle. The movie follows a group of survivors in London, after a highly contagious virus has wiped out most of the population, turning them into savage, fast-moving zombies.
The film is known for its gritty, realistic portrayal of a society in collapse and for its exploration of themes such as fear, isolation, and the human will to survive. The movie features intense action sequences and tense moments of suspense, as the survivors try to stay alive and find safety in a world overrun by the infected.
The film stars Cillian Murphy as Jim, a man who wakes up from a coma to find himself in the middle of the outbreak, and Naomie Harris as Selena, a survivor who helps him navigate the dangerous new world. The movie was a critical and commercial success, spawning a sequel, “28 Weeks Later,” and influencing the zombie genre for years to come. “28 Days Later” is regarded as a modern classic of the horror genre and a must-see for fans of post-apocalyptic fiction.
