Cillian Murphy in 28 Days LaterThere might not be anything better than beating the heat with a little zombie action. To make up for their spectacularly misguided adaptation of The Beach, Danny Boyle and Beach writer Alex Garland give a bleak vision of London in 28 Days Later, where mankind is being ravaged by a virus, Ebola with a twist, as the infected turn into zombies that sprint after the uninfected. Meditations on humanity interspersed with vomiting blood and red eyes.

Gothamist saw the film a few weeks ago and the most beautiful passages of the film are near the beginning, with one survivor wandering the deserted, ransacked streets of London. Manohla Dargis calls 28 Days Later "wonderfully, horribly scary."
