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.

L.A. Weekly

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

Globe and Mail

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

The Blu Spot

The Girl with All the Gifts starts off with quite a lot of potential in its first act, but unfortunately the story is taken in a clichéd, bland, and rather silly direction that results in an ultimately unsatisfying and quickly forgettable zombie outing.

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.

The innovation of Girl is that Melanie is, in fact, a monster... Horror films are best when they borrow from and reflect reality. There isn't anything scarier than truth; dig it.

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.

The Girl with All the Gifts keeps a brisk pace and avoids chunky exposition.

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

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

A refreshing twist on classic zombie fare. Solid acting for a zombie film with a little heart, beyond those that get eaten. The main story points have all the… More

Colm McCarthy breathes fresh new life into the post-apocalyptic zombie genre.
Daniel Parsons
Very well written zombie flick that shares DNA with the Luke's of Day of the Triffids and kid centric horror like The Children or village of the Damned. A… More
