28 days later...

28 days laterTonight, I went to see 28 days later at the cinema with a few of my friends from work.

Based on the book of the same name, it is a horror film about a deadly virus unleashed unwittingly by animal rights protestors in Cambridge. 28 days later, Jim, the main character, awakes in a hospital to find it empty, as with the rest of the capital - bar a few of the infected...

I thought the film was truly excellent, and well worth going to see. Set in London, I think it must be one of the best British films - if not the best - I've ever seen. Quite scary to think though, that in theory it could so easily happen in real life, especially as I'm living in the city it was filmed in.

It was good to see movie locations I've come to know quite well. In fact it kind of took me back to the days when I used to keep ManxFilms up to date with all the latest goings on in the Manx film industry. Not living on the Island now though, it's quite difficult for me to stay ahead of the game with what is going on over there, which is the main reason I haven't been posting any updates to the ManxFilms site.

Anyway, when the film had finished, I realised it had already turned 11.30pm, so we had to run through Angel underground station to make sure we caught the last tube home. What fun! Only trouble now that I'm home though, I don't feel tired. The combination of 28 days later and Godzilla before must have frightened my poor little mind. Hehe :)
