The Girl With All the Gifts is set in Britain where the population has been nearly wiped out by a fungal outbreak. Its only hope for salvation is a group of hybrid zombie children, created by a team of scientists to experiment on for a cure.
Helmed by Colm McCarthy (Outcast) and based on Mike Carey’s 2014 novel of the same name, The Girl With All the Gifts stars Sennia Nanua as a potential child savior, Glenn Close as the ruthless scientist experimenting on her, and Gemma Arterton as her former teacher and self appointed guardian.
The film – with its fast running zombies – looks frightening and fun, but regrettably, Arterton’s wardrobe is all frumpy sweater and no skintight leather. It’s a huge mistake hiding her curves and boobage. How are we supposed to care about what happens to her if she looks like your mom?
