Basically the average special feature, 22 November 2005
Author: Polaris_DiB from United States

I don't buy DVDs for the extras, I buy them for the movies, but every now and then I do like to go through and see what else the DVD has to offer. This little documentary is featured on the special edition DVD of 28 Days Later... and calls itself a "making of", though it doesn't really seem to talk much about any actual production, but more about the thoughts and feelings the cast and crew share about their work and the effect the movie had on them... it's basically the average special edition making-of documentary that doesn't really do anything.

That said, it does deserve a little bit of credit: the beginning and final lines of it could almost be said to be scarier than the movie itself, because it deals very straightforwardly with the impending doom of a pandemic and what effect that could have with us. While it still contains a lot of guesswork and mainly anxieties about such a situation, our world currently seems one constantly on the lookout for the next virus to arise and drastically reduce our masses. The discussions of the filmmakers and the footage of such things as hundreds of animal carcasses from hoof-and-mouth disease bring a sense of reality to the largely metaphorical movie it accompanies, which does in a sense really help us feel more terrified by the ideas presented in the film.

Too bad it didn't really stick with that vein, or at least go fully into the "making-of" premise it promised, else it might be really worth the price of the disc itself.
