28 DAYS LATER
FANGORIA's British correspondent, Alan Jones, caught an early screening of TRAINSPOTTING director Danny Boyle's London-set zombie opus 28 DAYS LATER and gives us the scoop. The film, which opens in the UK in November and arrives from Fox Searchlight sometime next year in the U.S., stars Christopher (THE OTHERS) Eccleston and Brendan (LAKE PLACID) Gleeson.
Jones writes, 'Get ready for BRAINSPOTTING! A highly contagious virus, locking those infected into a permanent state of killing rage, spreads across the planet in director Danny Boyle?s gory, tense and shocking neo-zombie allegory. Shot on digital video for a disturbing quasi-documentary atmosphere, the movie, scripted by Alex (THE BEACH) Garland, focuses on four survivors learning that deranged humanity poses a more deadly threat than the virus. Complete with eerie vistas of deserted London, 28 DAYS LATER mixes DAWN and DAY OF THE DEAD concerns with a splatter of Richard Matheson?s I AM LEGEND for a genuinely scary and provocative apocalyptic nightmare. And the heart-stopping climax is just transfixing.'
