The Girl With All the Gifts Series by M.R. Carey
The Girl With All the Gifts
Sign in. Breakout star Erin Moriarty of " The Boys " shouts out her real-life super squad of actors. Watch now. Title: The Girl with All the Gifts After an epidemic spreads all over Australia, a father searches for someone willing to protect his daughter. While a zombie virus breaks out in South Korea, passengers struggle to survive on the train from Seoul to Busan.
The zombie boom of the late oughts and onward—more or less spurred on by the popularity of The Walking Dead TV series—seems to be reaching its nadir, given that tons of people hate The Walking Dead now and audiences in general are thoroughly burnt-out on zombies just Google "sick of zombie movies" and see what comes up. Which is a shame, because there are a number of tremendous zombie narratives out there, titles that genuinely do something new and exciting with the horror subgenre, including the topic of today's discussion, M. Club but it seems likely the film adaptation will get swept under the rug of zombie fatigue. Which is a double shame: this is one of the best on-screen depictions of "the walking dead" to come out in quite some time, the exact opposite of that aforementioned AMC show's sluggish meandering, gratuitous violence, and soap opera-style plotting. The Girl With All The Gifts has all the heart of The Walking Dead 's first season and a whole lot more to spare, not to mention characters we actually give a shit about. For those of you curious, though, about how the movie stacks up to its source material, to put the matter simply, they are almost identical in plot and quality, as Carey—in a most nontraditional move—wrote both the novel and screenplay at the same time. There are several subtle differences throughout both narratives, of course, but those have no real bearing on the story overall.
