Humanity has been all but destroyed by a fungal disease that eradicates free will and turns its victims into flesh-eating 'hungries'. Only a small group of children seem to be immune to its effects. At an army base in rural England, these unique children are being studied and subjected to cruel experiments. When the base falls, one little girl escapes and must discover what she is, ultimately deciding both her own future and that of the human race.

As Glen Close is in the cast, hope for a meaningful if not entertaining zombie watch like Brad Pitt's 2013 World War Z or Robert Rodriguez's 2007 Planet Terror with Josh Brolin, and 1996 From Dusk Till Dawn with George Clooney. Unfortunately, not entertaining and not too meaningful without more background on those special kids' nascent gift. The best scenes are the drone footage of Pripyat and Chernobyl, Ukraine.

Generally, this is a zombie movie where crowds of people are zombies in England. The beginning of the movie takes place on a military base in England. I enjoyed this movie because it had the main character named Melanie. She is one of the zombie kids who is friendly and smart. How did the people become zombies? Apparently, a fungus gets into your body and you become a zombie. ***************
But, I have question. How did the fungus pods infect the people and make them into zombies? In all the zombie movies I have seen, I wonder how zombies stay alive if they don't eat regualrly? Instead of starving to death because of lack of food, the undead zombies keep living to eat or bite human bystanders.**********************At the end of the movie, the teacher named Ms. Justineau ends up teaching the zombie kids history and academic lessons. I think there is room for a movie sequel because I liked this movie. There are still unanswered questions. For example, how did this zombie epidemic begin? Who introduced the fungus pods that turn people into zombies? Where are the other surviving humans in England?

It's watchable, though barely. The acting is generally solid at most roles. The filmmakers were trying to be more clever than they could ultimately live up to in terms of the early setups and the late twists. Not a terrible effort. It would be worth passing on this for another title unless your options are very limited.

I was pleasantly surprised with how much I really enjoyed the movie. It was strange at the beginning at how they were treating the children but later I understood how necessary it was to do so. Sennia Nanua was absolutely excellent in the movie. Love conquers all. It is important to be mindful of how you treat others, you never know who will have to come to your rescue. Excellent movie, glad I chose to watch it.

I love how the film made the book come alive! Melanie could possibly have saved the world, but Miss Justineau loved her too much to allow Dr. Caldwell to dissect her. As a mother, I could see and understand where Miss Justineau was coming from. I can tell how much she cared for Melanie when she refused to let the doctor put her in the wheel well of the truck. I love this book and of course the movie too!

A dark, odd take on the zombie world.
Sennia Nanua's portrayal of a precocious zombie girl is a scene stealer. It seems love and friendship can cross species barriers.
And yes, bloodthirsty viewers will be satisfied.

Good movie with good actors, but some poorer actors dragged it down a little. A dark movie with gore; not necessarily a date night movie. However, if you're on a plane and there's nothing else to do, it's quite good.

A different and entertaining movie.
Pleasantly surprised, Incredible
acting by Sennia Nanau, who portrayed
the young girl.
Don't shy away from the movie,
because of the presence
of Zombies.

Violence: Zombie gore - includes shooting, biting, stabbing, hitting, fighting, blood splatters, and bloody wounds, some of it centered around kids. Child zombies attack and kill people, with gore. Soldiers point guns at children. Kids eat animals graphic for some people. Peril and danger.

The Schrodinger's cat paradox:

There's a cat in a box. It could be alive or it could be dead.
-Fifty-fifty.
How would you find out?
-You'd open the box and look inside.
Before that, when the box is closed, is the cat alive or dead?
-Am I allowed to listen?
No.
-Or shake the box, or weigh it?
Or drill a hole in it? Nothing like that. It's a logic problem.
===
Did you think about that cat?
-The cat in the box? It's not alive or dead. It's just gone.
Why?
-Cats are clever.
The standard answer is, it's both. Alive and dead at the same time.
-That's stupid.
Possibly. But it's what you came here for, isn't it? The answer to the mystery.
