April 17th, 2012: 28 Days Later (2002)

Cast and Crew:   Danny Boyle (Director); Alex Garland (Writer); Naomi Harris, Brendan Gleeson, Christopher Eccleston

What It’s About:  Jim (Cillian Murphy) wakes up in a hospital in a seemingly abandoned London.  Jim quickly discovers why London is deserted:  a virus that unleashes rage in the infected and is spread by bodily fluids became epidemic throughout England after it was accidentally unleashed by animal rights activists.  Can Jim and a handful of other survivors find a haven from the rampaging infected?

Why Watch it Today?: Today is World Hemophilia Day; it’s hard to imagine a situation worse to be a Hemophiliac in than the one presented in 28 Days Later.

Where to Get It: Netflix (Rental Only) or your local library.

Other Choices:  Last year we suggested The Omega Man for your Wold Hemophilia Day viewing pleasure.
