So you don’t go into this movie confused on the title like I did, let me run down the synopsis really quick.  Even after seeing the movie, I am still not fully sure of the time-frame in relation to the first movie.  It starts off in the middle of a storyline involving what appears to be a man, his wife, a possible pregnant sibling and their elderly parents.  They take in a child (really, for no reason as it has no point for the rest of the movie).  Very quickly after taking in this child, they are violently attacked by what are now very powerful zombies.  One or two, or all (I don’t want to spoil anything) escape and then the recap comes up letting the audience in on what happens in certain increments after the “escape.”  First, a few days later and then what happened “28 Days Later” which leads me to believe that what was just viewed was happening simultaneously with the events of the first movie.
