Favorite Movie Scenes (Part 3)

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.

  1. Out of all the brit films I've seen, I think that one takes the cake.. Romper Stomper still beats everything though.

  16. 28 weeks later has some great scenes. First zombie movies I really got into.

  17. Ehh 28 DAYS later was probably the best. I just kind of don't like how every zombie movie is about a small band of people (or one person) surviving the zombie apocalypse.

    I think there should definitely be serious military hardware put to use in most of these films. But then the infection wouldn't do much after being nuked--leaving writers only to make them "evil" zombies.

  20. Gore is really not my thing, but I love zombie flicks. I dunno why, I'm just a bag of contradictions.

  21. Hell yeah a great zombie movie, and i know, the part where hes running and the open shot of all the zombies running after him, DAMN intense stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Might need to check this one out.

  23. 28 weeks later is only beaten in terms of zombie flicks by 28 days later.

    ReplyDelete
  24. And for the record, I think 28 Days Later is by far a much better movie than Weeks. Boyle is one of my favorite directors, and he did something great with that movie.

  29. Personally I was never a fan of any of the 28 movies, then again I don't really get the zombie obsession.
