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.

A wicked, gory and even occasionally funny take on George A. Romero.

What separates the film from the rest of the recycled zombies of our time is, on the one hand, the splendid cast and, on the other hand, the careful relationship that has the story of Carey with the Greek myth of Pandora. [Full review in Spanish]

Might be the most inadvertently appropriate analog to life in 2017's increasingly unstable world.

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

A much more reflective film than most of the zombie films of the last decade, except for some examples like Train to Busan (2016). [Full review in Spanish]

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.

It's a film for people who thought they never needed to sit through another zombie flick. It's also quite likely the strangest entry that will ever appear on Glenn Close's IMDB page.

On the one hand, it's an absorbing, electrifying film. On the other hand, however, the narrative that gives form seems to emerge from a universe of fiction that can no longer go beyond itself. [Full review in Spanish]

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

In a day and age where Hollywood has become so overbearing when it gets hold of an idea (see anything super hero for example), zombies have taken a slight back… More

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

Colm McCarthy breathes fresh new life into the post-apocalyptic zombie genre.

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

This film could have taken place in the same universe as The Last of Us. It starts of excellently, but quickly suffers from a bevy of zombie tropes I've… More
