Watch this new clip from innovative new zombie chiller The Girl with All the Gifts
Just when you think the zombie film template has been set in stone, here comes the acclaimed new festival fave ghoul opera The Girl with All the Gifts, a chilling, moving and totally irreverent drama about the living dead directed by Colm McCarthy. It’s unlike anything else you’ve ever seen.
The near future: humanity has been all but destroyed by a fungal disease that eradicates free will and turns its victims into flesh eating “hungries”. Only a small group of children seem immune to its effects. At an army base in rural England, this group of unique children are being studied and subjected to cruel experiments. But one little girl, Melanie, stands out from the rest.
When the base falls, Melanie escapes along with Miss Justineau (Gemma Arterton), Sergeant Parks (Paddy Considine), Dr. Caldwell (Glenn Close) and two other soldiers. Against the backdrop of a blighted Britain, Melanie must discover what she is and ultimately decide both her own future and that of the human race.
The Girl with All the Gifts opens in select theaters and On Demand on February 24 from Saban Films and on DIRECTV on January 26. Saban has released a new clip from the movie below and you can watch the official trailer below that…
