Maggie is a 2015 American independent post-apocalyptic horror feature film, directed by Henry Hobson, written by John Scott 3 and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Abigail Breslin and Joely Richardson.

The movie was a dramatic departure for Schwarzenegger, who is more known for his action hero roles and for huge budget movies.



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…


Maggie isn’t a sharply paced feature, with director Henry Hobson taking his time to develop mood and remind viewers of the sacrifices contained in the story. Adjust expectations accordingly, and the movie has moments of real heartbreak, turning what appears to be a traditional zombie exploration into an intimate study of paternal devotion.”

“Director Henry Hobson, for lack of a better term, has brought us a kindler and gentler view of the apocalypse.  Yes, there are zombies around, but carrying remains of their humanity in ways which will surprise us.  He’s more interested in how those left behind would deal with a cataclysmic event, and centers it wonderfully around Wade and his daughter Maggie (Abigail Breslin).” Can’t Stop the Movies

“While Maggie may not necessarily the movie you may conjure up in your head when you hear that the former ‘Governator’ is taking on zombies for his latest, but I think that’s what makes it such a remarkable effort from everyone involved. There’s something to be said about a zombie film that’s really about the human experience more so than bashing in brains of the undead and that’s why Maggie stands out…” Daily Dead
