Twenty years ago a mysterious fungal infection reduced most of humanity to bloodthirsty zombie-like creatures known as “hungries”. In THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS we follow the remaining uninfected humans as they scramble to find a cure against the epidemic. As the murderous flocks of savages grow increasingly difficult to ward off, a ten-year-old girl holds the promise to mankind’s survival. Following in the footsteps of critically acclaimed British films such as 28 DAYS LATER and CHILDREN OF MEN, THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS is one of this year’s genre highlights.
