28 Days Later...
2003
Twenty-eight days after a killer virus was accidentally unleashed from a British research facility, a small group of London survivors (including Cillian Murphy and Brendan Gleeson) are caught in a desperate struggle to protect themselves from the infected. Carried by animals and humans, the virus turns those it infects into homicidal maniacs -- and it's absolutely impossible to contain. Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) directs.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

This film deserves all the praise it is getting for being gripping and bleak, and especially for being ambitious; until the end it avoids so many clich├ęs of the genre. It never even gives us a clear look at a violent act (and there are many), preferring to make its impact with style and immediacy. Don't believe the buzz that it's a scary film, though; it's a drawn-out character study with a horror-film premise. A more interesting lead actor would have improved it, but my biggest gripe is how quickly it thinks men would turn into rapists with the lid of society taken off.
