We’ll not lie, The Girl With All The Gifts completely blind-sided us.

We had no idea what this movie was before the trailer landed and now that it’s here, we wild horses couldn’t drag us away from the cinema.
Imagine if The Last of Us and 28 Days Later had a child who was a great looking standalone psuedo-zombie movie and you’re pretty much there.

The near future; humanity has been all but destroyed by a mutated 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, subjected to cruel experiments by biologist Dr. Caldwell.  Despite having been infected with the zombie pathogen that has decimated the world, these children retain normal thoughts and emotions.  And while still being subject to the craving for human flesh that marks the disease these second-generation “hungries” are able to think and feel making them a vital resource in the search for a cure.

The children attend school lessons daily, guarded by the ever watchful Sergeant Parks.  But one little girl, Melanie, stands out from the rest.  Melanie is special.  She excels in the classroom, is inquisitive, imaginative and loves her favourite teacher Miss Justineau.  
When the base falls, Melanie escapes along with Miss Justineau, Sergeant Parks and Dr. Caldwell. 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 released in UK cinemas 23 September.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
