Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes according to plan.
This is the second-to-shortest(or longest) of the three featurettes on the DVD of 28 Weeks Later, coming in at just over 7 minutes total. It consists of behind-the-scenes footage, interviews and clips of the film(and the first one). The best of it is when it actually stays on the same person for several seconds, instead of jumping around like a Rage-infected monkey suffering from ADD. They have interesting things to say, especially when they go over stuff about the movie itself, instead of engaging in the obligatory love-fest(at one point, Byrne practically hiccups trying to make sure that we know that as tough as it was, it was fun, you know, "please don't not hire me"). They talk about working with Fresnadillo and Boyle(who did a little second unit), about making the picture itself very much like a documentary and, oh, right, the action, too(why do these have such vague focus?). We again get irritating overstylization, if only a tad this time. There is some disturbing content and bloody, gory violence in this making-of production, if no real spoilers. I recommend this to anyone who liked the flick itself. 7/10
