‘The Girl With All the Gifts’ (Oct. 31)
This 2017 British zombie film (adapted from the Mike Carey novel) similarly uses the standbys of genre filmmaking to tell a story that is about far more than jump-scares and oozing gore.
Sennia Nanua (in her feature debut) plays the title character, one of a generation of children who could hold the key to the survival of the human race.
She lives and learns on an army base, and when that seemingly impenetrable fortress is attacked by zombies, she and a handful of other survivors attempt a perilous escape.
Gemma Arterton, Paddy Considine, and Glenn Close round out the stellar ensemble.
