A Review of #Zombie Movie Maggie

A couple weekends ago, I had the opportunity to watch Maggie. I’ve been wanting to see this movie since I first saw the trailer.

I knew it wasn’t going to be your typical zombie flick. I figured there probably wasn’t going to be a lot of gory action, and there wasn’t. But it was a great film nonetheless.

One of the things zombie films do is highlight is the difference between us and them—or zombies and humans. There’s a thin line between what makes us human and what makes us a monster. In most zombie films, the focus is on how we act just as monstrous as the zombies. That wasn’t the case in Maggie.

I don’t want to delve too deeply in the plot for fear of giving the movie away. If you haven’t seen it and plan to, I don’t want to ruin it for you.

I highly recommend this movie. Again, there isn’t a lot of gory action, and the story actually moves pretty slowly—and not in the shambling zombie way. I would watch this movie again, and I may to critique it.

Has anyone else seen this? What did they think?
