Drama, Horror, Thriller

A teenage girl in the Midwest becomes infected by an outbreak of a disease that slowly turns the infected into cannibalistic zombies. During her transformation, her loving father stays by her side.

The critical consensus

It feels a little like ‘a very special episode of The Walking Dead’ and might be a tad low-key for its field, but Schwarzenegger and Breslin are good and the payoff is affecting.

A sad, gloomy family drama dressed up as horror, Maggie proves that Schwarzenegger can act when he wants to – even if he still looks like he’d rather be blowing shit up.

A grim zombie outing starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin that drowns in body fluids and emo slush.

Arnold Schwarzenegger gives soulful performance in family drama.

With a dearth of action, the actors have to carry the day and Arnie just isn’t up to it.

Essentially it’s using zombies as a metaphor for terminal illness, which makes it a more dolorous film than one might have expected, but with the current pop culture ubiquity of zombies, it also shows there’s life left in the undead yet.

Schwarzenegger shows surprising delicacy as a man trying to prevent his child succumbing to a deadly virus.
