As the last, desperate teen survivors in “All of Us Are Dead” do their best to stay alive through a zombie apocalypse, hoping beyond hope that adults are coming to rescue them, it takes a full day of horrors to make them realize that they’re on their own. With their high school labeled Ground Zero for the escalating outbreak, the students are left for dead (or, as is the case with zombies, something in between).

The Zombie ‘Rules’ Of Netflix’s ‘All Of Us Are Dead’

Netflix has once again turned to Korean zombies for another fantastic production. We’ve seen this once already with Kingdom, but now, we’re headed to the present day with the 12 episode series All of Us Are Dead, the closest thing to a TV adaptation of Train to Busan we’re likely to see (and incidentally, better than its quasi-sequel, Peninsula).

Best Zombie TV Shows of All Time

Historically, zombies are more associated with cinema than TV. Originally defined in a modern context by George Romero’s 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead, in the decades since, zombies have evolved (watch out!) to become one of pop culture’s most recognizable horror tropes—to the point where they even pop up in TV shows that are decidedly not about zombies. In honor of All Of Us Are Dead, the horrifying zombie K-drama that just dropped on Netflix, we’re taking the time to recommend some of our favorite zombie TV shows of all time.

All of Us Are Dead Zombies Explained

This All of Us Are Dead article contains spoilers. As anyone who has watched Zombieland knows, different zombie dystopias have different zombie rules. The zombies in All of Us Are Dead follow basic zombie rules (e.g. they are mindless, undead creatures hungry for brains), with a few quirks thrown in for good measure—most especially the inclusion of the “hambie” and the focus on students as undead.

All of Us Are Dead: Season 1 Review

This is a spoiler-free review for all 12 episodes of All of Us Are Dead, premiering Friday, Jan. 28 on Netflix. All of Us Are Dead is South Korea's latest entry into its excellent, escalating body of undead mayhem (Train to Busan, #Alive). A zombie outbreak series (mostly) set within the carnage-filled classrooms, hallways, and stairwells of a multi-storied high school, All of Us Are Dead pulls no punches and unleashes a savage and seemingly never-ending assault of fast-running zombies on an unfortunate squad of students who've managed to survive the first wave of a zompocalypse. It's clever, thrilling, and also... a bit exhausting.

All of Us Are Dead: How Netflix’s Bleak Zombie K-Drama Ends

This article contains MAJOR spoilers for all of All of Us Are Dead. All of Us Are Dead is longer than most of Netflix‘s recent genre K-drama offerings, with 12 one-hour episodes. The series, which is an adaptation of a webtoon of the same name, uses the narrative space well, keeping viewers guessing about how this seemingly hopeless situation will wrap up by series’ end. As you might imagine for a show called All of Us Are Dead (though the literal translation is closer to “Now, At Our School”), the ending to this series is pretty damn bleak. While some of our main characters make it out alive, not all of them do, and the resulting reality waiting for them on the other side isn’t all rainbows and kittens either. Let’s break down how it all ends…

‘All of Us Are Dead’: Director Has One Request From Audiences While Watching the Zombie K-Drama

The director of All of Us Are Dead asks audiences to do one key thing to get the most enjoyable experience from the drama.

‘All of Us Are Dead’ Episode 3 Recap: No Matter What Happens, Don’t Die

One of the unwritten rules that govern many apocalypse stories is the commandment “thou shalt not kill.” I was first exposed to this ethos in Stephen King’s The Stand, in which the character Nadine Cross comes to believe that killing anyone, after so many billions of people have died from a superflu, is the worst sin anyone can commit. She winds up eating those words, but they’ve stuck with me ever since, no matter what kind of apocalypse drama I’m watching. It’s a big part of why the kill-or-be-killed ethos of The Walking Dead has always rubbed me the wrong way—and it’s why I found this episode of All of Us Are Dead to be the most impressive one so far.

25 Korean Films and TV Series Are Arriving on Netflix This Year

Netflix cleaned house with the ultimate jackpot last year when it placed a bet on Korean shows including Squid Game and Hellbound. This year, the platform has announced that they plan to throw it all in and will release twenty-five Korean films and series over 2022. While Netflix didn’t share how much their largest to date release lineup from Korea will cost them, we do know that in 2021, the streaming service spent over half a billion dollars on the country’s content, and with the addition of so many new titles, the 2022 figure is sure to run laps around that of 2021.

Omicron Means Parents Are Doing It All Again, Except This Time Dead Inside

Here I am again. It’s 9 in the morning, my 18-month-old is screaming the words “Coco” (short for Cocomelon, of course) so compulsively I wonder for a minute if toddlers this young have ever been exorcised. My 4-year-old tearfully begs to eat a candy cane for breakfast and I relent because the will to fight the crushing tide of an impending tantrum left my body long ago. He’s also taken off the clothing I dressed him in this morning in favor of his preferred outfit these days: a Spider-Man mask and the haunting reflection of my own mortality. All of this while I try to navigate the flurry of emails bidding me a “happy new year” and reminding me of all the work I’ve been putting off for when I was rested and ready to face 2022 as a refreshed version of myself (lol).
