Has anyone else seen this movie? My husband and I went to see it last night, it was one of the best movies I've seen in a long time.

Overview- Members of an animal liberation organization free a chimp infecting with a highly contaigous disease called "rage". The infection spreads very quickly through blood. The infection causes people to attack others violently.

I really liked this movie. In my opinion, it's up there with Dawn of the Dead. Very origional, not a typical zombie movie.

I didn't find anyting negative about the depiction of the animal liberators. It was though, hard to watch seeing the chimps in the lab. Maybe it made a few people think in the theatre, seeing animals in such a state of abuse.

I have an intense fear of Zombies, but at the same time a fascination. I plan to see this movie late at night and park far away from the cinema; then I'll have to walk through the dark deserted streets after seeing it and I'll probably be scared sh*tless.

So if I never post again after the Aussie release date of this movie it means I've had a heart attack.

I enjoyed it. I thought the groans from the audience in the opening sequence might result in some enlightenment but then 2 minute later they were giggling about

I have wanted to see this movie for AGES! It came out over here a while ago, and I meant to see it while it was in the cinema. My best friend recently acquired it on DVD and said it was the biggest pile of shyte he's seen in a long time... but I don't actually believe he's watched it yet.

You'd never want to seee our movie collection! We have just about every zombie there is (Romero, Fulchi) My husband is really into gore (he's vegan though!).He has a fascination with survival-horror scenarios. He plans his route of exit in the event that zombies would return from the dead, or in this case, a virus causing infected people to attack. Very active imagination? LOL!

We saw the movie at a matinee showing, so there were only about 10 people in the theatre. I would have gotten really annoyed if I saw this in a packed theatre (people yelling and screaming
)

I heard that in the UK, the DVD is already out and has deleted scenes and an alternate ending. I really want to see the movie again, but I'll have to wait to buy it on DVD.

I just saw this yesterday, and I really enjoyed it. I am a HUGE zombie movie fan, so I was a bit disappointed when I found out that there wasn't actually any "real" zombies, only infected people who can be killed, but it did have a zombie type of feel to it. The creepy factor was pretty high, so that's a plus for me. I really dug how they sped up the movements of the infected people when they shambled along - extra creepy.

The infected priest in the church scene reminded me of Earl in the Red Meat comic strip http://www.redmeat.com/redmeat/

Could be the bugged out eyes

I just saw the movie "28 Days Later" last night and let me tell you, I am not easily creeped out or scared by a movie, but this one..wow!!! It isn't like your regular horror flick or anything like that, it really makes you think, my mind was racing after the movie! I don't recommend seeing it if you have a weak stomach or are scared easily, but if that isn't you case then definetly see it!

This movie freaked my sh*t out!!

I was actually more freaked by the other danger element and not so much by the zombies (those who have seen it will know what I'm talking about). I thought it was very well done. Much better than any horror film I've seen in ages.

The opening scene with the animals in the lab really got to me, though. I almost couldn't watch it.
