Double bill of futuristic nightmare scenarios. Danny Boyle directs '28 Days Later' (2002), a look at what could happen after a viral attack. The virus is so deadly that within seconds the infected person is taken over by a murderous rage, permanently. After 28 days there is only a handful of non-infected survivors, but the virus is not the only thing they have to contend with... In the sequel, '28 Weeks Later' (2007), directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, it's six months later and the US military have managed to restore order in the population. Unfortunately, one of the returning refugees is carrying the virus, and it won't be long before a pandemic spreads.
