An environmentalist terrorist group attacks a lab, unleashing the “Rage Virus” by allowing infected chimps to get loose, which brings about a plague that turns humans into zombies. These were not your run-of-the-mill zombies though, thanks to director Danny Boyle, who consciously chose to avoid the typical zombie tropes by instead making his zombies fast moving, athletic, and strong. “28 Days Later” is often credited with revitalizing the tired zombie genre.
