I’m so glad to see the zombie genre isn’t dead. This is the most unique take on the classic monster that I’ve seen to date. The Girl With All The Gifts is a simple but satisfying story about the fight for humanity. The future of mankind rest with a girl named Melanie (Sennia Nanua).
The film was originally released in the United Kingdom. It’s a small production but the producers managed to make the world feel large. There are concepts of the story akin to the video game The Last of Us. Focus is spent on a hand full of complex characters with different agendas. It’s entertaining to see them explore a world that no longer belongs to them.
Melanie, is both a protagonist and antagonist. The child actor has a lot of range and is very intelligent. This movie has all the things you need for a horror movie. There’s creepy kids, zombies, and guns. The Girl With All The Gifts gets an 8 out of 10.
