The biggest sin of 28 Weeks Later is that it's not in the same league as the near-perfect movie that came before it.

INSTANT ZOMBIE ACTION !!!

By madmaximus1
The original 28 days later left you wondering what could happen next well here it is. 28 weeks later delivers a fan filled horror flick that would inpress many. In this sequal they try to repopulate...

More bang but less zombie bite?

By hdelvalle
This sequel is much better than its prdecessor "28 days" overall but it may lack the intense gore horror fans have become accustomed to. Instead of the typical hurricane of blood, body parts and gore...

horrible

By Beachmountain

If you liked the first, you'll like the second.

More of an action/thriller

By Fruitycake
This is not your let’s bring the date to a scary movie she/he jumps in your arms type of horror flick. The movie is very visceral, more of a rush, so much so, that the characters take a backseat to...

edge of your seat

By leanndrea
