Arnold Schwarzenegger's first zombie movie 'Maggie' has almost arrived in the UK, and while we might be more than used to the living dead stalking our screens (both big and small), the star insists that this new movie is different in that it takes a much more 'human' approach to the apocalyptic disaster.

Zombie movies like 'World War Z', '28 Days Later', 'Dawn Of The Dead' and indeed any others you can probably think of on the spot have a habit of focusing on the survivors. Viewers are gripped by the bloody and increasingly creative methods of walking dead destruction and no-one delves into the deeper fact that these 'creatures' were actually once very much human. Though when the protagonist is holding a shotgun to their head, it's the last thing you want to think about.

Films like 'Warm Bodies' and 'Life After Beth' took a romantic comedy spin on the genre, but 'Maggie' goes one step further by following the process of zombification in one girl and how it affects her devastated family, particularly her protective father. 'I play, in this film, probably a more human role than I've ever done before', Schwarzenegger admits, having indeed also recently just returned to everyone's favourite robot franchise with 'Terminator Genisys' in a very non-human role. 'Then it's a zombie movie which is the most human zombie movie that I ever have seen.'

Centering on the girl, Maggie, we see her being returned home from hospital after a fatal bite so that she can spent her last days with her father and stepmother before having to return to quarantine to complete her transformation. We see her struggling with her increasingly hunger-fuelled urges, her changing physical appearance and altering senses, and her unwavering grief that she will have to leave her family and friends eventually.

It's a lot to take in and, for a first zombie movie, Schwarzenegger his done himself proud. 'It was an interesting role for me, a challenging role, something that I've never done before', the star and co-producer confesses. However, it's far from co-star Abigail Breslin's first step into this ever-evolving monster genre, as she appeared in 2009 comedy 'Zombieland' when she was just 13-years-old.

Director Henry Hobson has had a little experience too. This is his full-length feature directorial debut but his main career has been as a titles designer and has previously worked on the popular never-ending series 'The Walking Dead'.

'Maggie' is set to be released in UK cinemas tomorrow (July 24th 2015).
