"28 WEEKS LATER" WILL BLOW YOU AWAY
If you’re one of those people who relishes a really grisly horror movie, be sure to see the expertly executed “28 Weeks Later.” The first scene was so disturbing we seriously considered bolting from the theater. What’s most frightening is the fact that it seems like this story, or something close to it, could really happen. How would you react in catastrophic circumstances? This story takes place seven months after the “rage virus” has annihilated everyone in the UK and the US Army has taken charge. Reconstruction and the return of refugees is underway when the disease resurfaces. Well meaning American soldiers turn into mass executioners. This movie is surprisingly intelligent and brilliantly, if painfully, directed. We walked out exhausted.
