Most of the population of Britain become infected with a vicious and highly infectious rage inducing virus

This post-apocalyptic thriller ingeniously uses scenes of a deserted London to disturbing effect. In one sequence some of the characters hide out in an empty Canary Wharf Underground station, though only the escalators are seen. Later, they walk along the Docklands Light Railway and leave via the stairs of the old South Quay station. Successful both commercially and critically, the film spawned a 2007 sequel, 28 Weeks Later (qv).
