The devastating rage virus that annihilated the British Isles mysteriously resurfaces in Goya Award-winning director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's sequel to the Danny Boyle-directed horror hit that terrified audiences worldwide by offering a breathless new take on the familiar zombie mythos.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's an exciting, well-directed thriller that, while providing more than enough action and gore to satisfy genre fans, also offers the political commentary that has characterized zombie movies."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Under Fresnadillo's assured direction, 28 Weeks Later blurs the line between genre entertainment and a photojournalist's shots of the next urban catastrophe."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"With its expertly paced thrills, unrelenting terror and apocalyptic despair, 28 Weeks Later ain't a bad roller coaster to ride."
‑ Jeff Meyers, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"28 Weeks Later contains many elements from the first film while also packing a much stronger emotional punch and ferocious intensity."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"Every bit as visceral and provocative as the original, but cinematographer Enrique Chediak's deserted London can't hold a candle to Anthony Dod Mantle's."
‑ Peg Aloi, Boston Phoenix
"There isn't much acting here, but there is entirely too much vomiting, and the prose turns laughably purple, too."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"Combines traditional B-movie virtues -- economy, invention, sinewy narrative spine -- with the eerily resonant spectacle of a 21st-century metropolis stripped of its citizenry."
‑ Tom Charity, CNN.com
"Apocalyptic zombie sequel isn't for the squeamish."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"Explicitly envisions Britain as a deserted combat zone"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Certainly scary and nerve-wracking, but it's also ham-fisted and monotonous; to call Fresnadillo et al. powerful filmmakers would be like calling the movie's "infected" cannibals gourmet diners."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"Even though I knew the scares were coming, I jumped out of my seat a few times."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Isn't the same thinking man's zombie film as its predecessor, but it ramps up the action and will leave you on edge enough that you'll be searching for a nightlight before going to sleep."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"deft and stylish"
‑ Jay Antani, Cinema Writer
"A worthy sequel that is recommended - even if you're tired of zombie flicks!"
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"Fresnadillo's film is an undeniable triumph and one that horror fans will love for decades to come."
‑ Lucius Gore, ESplatter
