The film does well in adding drama and human element to the oversaturated Zombie genre that we have had surge in every sense the Walking Dead debuted years ago. Girl With All The Gifts is a warm welcome for horror fans by trying something g different.
The acting, Glen Close in particular is fantastic. All the actors share a chemistry that really stands out in the horror realm.
The audio and picture are outstanding and helps set the tone for the post apocalyptic world we are welcomed into.
Great acting,great story, something new and fresh all make this a must watch.
Overall 3.5 out of 5 Stars
