28 Weeks Later - The Infected Invade
As much as it is a great scene, it’s a terrific opening. It starts with a nice steady pace as we’re introduced to a band of survivors camped in an old brick house in a quite vacant area (like a farm). While we observe what seems to be just another day for these refugees, a violent knock on their door is heard. It turns out to be a boy looking for help. They take him in, and while questioning him, what he was running from soon enters the picture. In a matter of minutes, what looked to be a cast of survivors doing well are quickly devoured, infected, and sent running for their lives while making life/death choices affecting their significant others as well as themselves. A great moment in this scene is the lasting survivor running for his life through an open field from “the infected” with that great backing song that seems to be in every trailer now-a-days. Literally gave me goosebumps because it worked and looked so damn good. Video doesn't do it justice as opposed to viewing it in its full glory in a theater as I did, or on blu-ray, but you get the idea.
