is easily one of his best works. Essentially, it's a zombie film, though with an unconventional, quite sombre tone and as a reflection of that, the "z" word is never mentioned. Arnie plays a doting dad who is forced to choose between confinement at home and a government-run quarantine-cum-concentration camp for his teenage daughter (Abigail Breslin), who has fallen victim to a global pandemic of "necroambulism" (which translates as the "walking dead" disease). No prizes for guessing which option Arnie plumps for, despite the doubts of friends, neighbours and local law enforcement. Gripping and genuinely moving,

, Breslin, make the seamless transition from child star to serious actress.
A virus sweeps across America turning people into zombies, and the government establishes measures to capture those infected and dispose of them once the process is complete. When a teenage girl is infected, her devoted father refuses to hand her over to the authorities, and vows to defend her to the bitter end. Horror, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin.
