The movie's craft makes the dread of a killer virus contagious: viewers may feel they have come down with a case of secondhand SARS or sympathetic monkeypox.

Heedlessly derivative though it may be, 28 Days Later does what it sets out to do and then some -- scare us out of our wits, then get us to apply those wits to an uncommonly intelligent and provocative zombie flick.

Later does a lot of things right, which makes its third-act missteps even more frustrating.

The picture is twitchy and annoying, flecked with blood and half-digested ideas, and too much is left unexplained.

Danny Boyle's purposeful direction and Mark Tildesley's imaginative and resourceful production design keep this fresh and edgy; the images of a wasted London and the details of a paramilitary organization in the countryside are both creepy and persuasive.

What also makes 28 Days Later effective, and sets it apart from other thrillers, is that it makes you care about the characters.

Danny Boyle has got his edge back.

It makes for a more intimate brand of horror, one we can't explain away by pretending we're watching the same old well-oiled Hollywood malarkey.

In the old days, a feverish programmer like 28 Days Later would end up on the bottom half of a double bill.

... really creepy and really scary ...

I enjoyed watching this film, mostly because Murphy and Harris make such an appealing central couple to build a new world around. But nobody should mistake this for a killer-zombie movie with real soul.

Detestable, not just because its action is so vile or its technique so crude, but because its moral imagination is so impoverished.
27/06/2003 by Peter Howell
Director Boyle and screenwriter Alex Garland have rebounded smartly from the bloated Leonardo DiCaprio debacle that was The Beach, their previous collaboration.
27/06/2003 by Moira MacDonald
It's unpleasant stuff, told without winks or humor, and it's so perfectly pitched that you can't take your eyes off it, even if this sort of hard-edged horror isn't exactly your cup of Diet Coke.

It has eerie images, a compelling situation and an unusual capacity to surprise.
27/06/2003 by Roger Moore
Derivative but horrifically effective.
27/06/2003 by Rene Rodriguez
This smart, genuinely creepy movie also feels real, which is why its horrors hit so hard.

[Boyle's] back on British turf here and in fine dark form.

The rare horror film that splatters and pauses to consider the splatter, that follows a traditional storyline and then improves upon it, and that avoids cliches while playing one out.
