Last night was "Minutes Past Midnight", an anthology collection on Hulu. There are some good flicks in this anthology so 4 minute hands.

16. The Girl With All The Gifts (FTV)
A fungus turns most of humanity into bloodthirsty "hungries" (zombies) aside from a small group of children who are in some ways immune, but in other ways very much a new species of human. This was a nice fresh take on the zombie genre from the British, which manages to avoid most of the tired cliches that we've seen so many times before while being a decent action thriller as well. The girl in the title role plays it straight as a very well-mannered young British child despite being part monster. It's interesting to see her retain these characteristics even as an "infected" one, and to see the three very different relationships she has with each of the adults in this film: the motherly teacher, the cold calculating scientist who's trying to find a cure, and the sergeant who's just interested in survival. If you want something a little different in the zombie genre, give this one a try.

4 out of 5 stars.
