    After watching The Return of Optimus Prime, I have noticed that the Hate Plague is similar to that of the Rage Virus from the 28 Days/Weeks Later films because both of them start in laboratories and whoever gets touched also becomes a carrier. Coincidence or what?

    Yes.

    And you need to get bitten or come in contact with blood in 28 days later, not just touched.

    And isn't that a common theme in zombie and zombie-like flicks as well as evil virus films?

    The hate plague from Return of Optimus Prime came from space in the form of spores that clung to that ship they used to rescue Op's body, so no, it's not quite the same. Plus as has been said already you only have to be touched to get the Hate Plague. This is not the case in 28 Days/Weeks Later. Also if anyone has seen the Marvel Zombies comic it's the same thing there where you have to break the skin in order for the virus to be transmitted.

    What about Resident Evil, either the games or the movies? Is it the same for them? I haven't really played them, only the first couple chapters in RE4.
