Maggie

Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Abigail Breslin, and Joely Richardson

Watch on Amazon

A deadly epidemic is turning people into zombies. The difference in this movie is that the transformation isn’t sudden, you don’t die first. You get infected and have to deal with the consequences of the infection until it turns you into a flesh eating zombie completely.

Wade is a father trying to protect his family during this epidemic. Sadly, his daughter Maggie gets infected. With only a small time left to spend with his daughter, Wade does all he can to protect his sick daughter from being killed off by the authorities who want her dead before she infects more of the human population.
