One girl holds the key to survival in this strikingly original post-apocalyptic zombie horror. In a dystopian near future, humanity has been ravaged by a mysterious fungal disease. The afflicted are robbed of all free will and turned into flesh-eating 'hungries'. Mankind's only hope is a small group of hybrid children who crave human flesh but retain the ability to think and feel. The kids go to school at an army base in rural England, where they're subjected to cruel experiments by Dr. Cauldwell (Glenn Close). Teacher Helen (Gemma Arterton) grows particularly close to an exceptional girl named Melanie (Sennia Nanua). When the base is invaded, the trio escape with guard Sergeant Parks (Paddy Considine) and embark on a perilous journey of survival, during which Melanie must come to terms with who she is. Filmed on location in the West Midlands, M.R. Carey's adaptation of his much-acclaimed, bestselling novel puts a fresh, provocative spin on the zombie movie.
