There's a new zombie movie in town, as The Girl With All The Gifts hits theaters on September 23. The Colm McCarthy-directed flick is based on a novel by Mike Carey and is set in the UK in the near future, once a fungal disease turns us all into "hungries." Only the children can save us. Read the synopsis and watch the trailer below.

"The children attend school lessons daily, guarded by the ever watchful Sergeant Parks. But one little girl, Melanie, stands out from the rest. Melanie is special. She excels in the classroom, is inquisitive, imaginative and loves her favourite teacher Miss Justine. When the base falls, Melanie escapes along with Miss Justineau, Sergeant Parks and Dr. Caldwell. Against the backdrop of a blighted Britain, Melanie must discover what she is and ultimately decide both her own future and that of the human race."
