Consensus: The Girl with All the Gifts grapples with thought-provoking questions without skimping on the scares -- and finds a few fresh wrinkles in the well-worn zombie horror genre along the way.

Like Melanie, The Girl With All the Gifts is neither dead nor alive but somewhere in between.

It's all fairly interesting if less than captivating, driven mostly by Nanua's bright performance.

The Girl with All the Gifts may be a zombie movie, but it's remarkably unencumbered by fidelity to the canon it cannibalizes.

Just when you thought the zombie genre was out of ideas, along comes Colm McCarthy's smart and engaging The Girl with All the Gifts, a film with echoes of George A. Romero, Danny Boyle, and Robert Kirkman.

The Gurl with all the Gifts is not to be missed. Yes it is a bloody post apocalyptic thriller, but it takes the genre in a new direction. Acting by Glenn Close… More

An interesting twist here reveals yet another path for the heavily traveled zombie trope worth a gamble. And it happens in England too.

You know, I wonder how difficult it must be to come up with a fresh angle to tell your story within the context of the zombie genre. The genre itself has been… More
