Angry Lurker Honest Movie Review 103: The Girl with all the Gifts (3 STARS)

Another zombie movie, I'm a little bored with zombie movies these days, well never fear in this one they are called "hungries", a fungal infection zombie movie, the story set 20 years after the outbreak on a British outpost manned by military/scientists, experimenting on zombie children who have not yet descended too far into the zombie infection, outpost is then breached, journey to find safety, etc.....


Melanie who is our zombie girl/star and does steal the show ahead of everyone else ( even Gemma Arterton), the movie follows a predictable story line except for certain ideas like our smell (big issue), the fungus and maybe the ending (bloody fungus)......

Paddy Considine plays a world weary British army sergeant..........


Glenn Close plays rabid scientist trying to save humanity......


All in all worth a watch if you like the genre, based on a 2014 book by M.R Carey!

fungus is a eukaryote that digests food externally and absorbs nutrients directly through its cell walls. Most fungi reproduce by spores and have a body (thallus) composed of microscopic tubular cells called hyphae. Fungi are heterotrophs and, like animals, obtain their carbon and energy from other organisms.

    1. Understandable, I have become jaded somewhat to the zombie genre and Glenn Close!

  6. "A fungus is a eukaryote that digests food externally and absorbs nutrients directly through its cell walls". I know someone like that..except he does it with beer. As to how he reproduces..I´d rather not think about that.
