Hailed as the most frightening film since The Exorcist, acclaimed Director Danny Boyle's visionary take on zombie horror "isn't just scary…it's absolutely terrifying" (Access Hollywood).
An infirmary patient awakens from a coma to an empty room…in a vacant hospital…in a deserted city.

Cast & Crew
It makes for a more intimate brand of horror, one we can't explain away by pretending we're watching the same old well-oiled Hollywood malarkey.
... really creepy and really scary ...
I enjoyed watching this film, mostly because Murphy and Harris make such an appealing central couple to build a new world around. But nobody should mistake this for a killer-zombie movie with real soul.
Director Boyle and screenwriter Alex Garland have rebounded smartly from the bloated Leonardo DiCaprio debacle that was The Beach, their previous collaboration.
It has eerie images, a compelling situation and an unusual capacity to surprise.
To each his own apocalypse, so to speak, but Danny Boyle has come up with a whopper.
Derivative but horrifically effective.
