All of Us Are Dead

All of Us Are Dead

Ladies and gentlemen, today I’d like to talk about a series that has completely changed the perception and things we thought we knew about the zombie apocalypse by the name — All of Us Are Dead.


This series was released on the 28th of January 2022, and while the television series is created and written by Chun Sung-il, the original idea is based on a manhwa, aka webcomic called — Now at Our School by Joo Dong-Geun.
Together with production companies such as Film Monster, Kim Jong Hak Production, and Netflix as the distributor, All of Us Are Dead was destined to get recognition whether you like it or not.
In this series of a zombie apocalypse, we follow the results of a school science teacher’s failed experiment that has leaked upon the students of Hyosan Highschool.
Students and teachers alike are both turned into zombies and the students that have outrun the pandemic are left alone to survive by any means necessary.
So what exactly makes this show phenomenal?
With 12 episodes included for the first season roughly running for about an hour each, what All of Us Are Dead offers its viewers is more than just a gory sight of brainless zombies running amok.
Viewers can expect to see some of their favorite characters perish and turn in front of their eyes. No one is safe.
Parents and children, military and the police, politics, and government — all these other aspects that are normally avoided are brought into fruition to form this incredible show.
What comes into play when all these different factors and people are brought together to fight for survival?
The results are total anarchy.
However, that’s not all. There is the love of a parent for their children that can rebel even against the greatest odds and authority, there is the love of a mother that will put herself in front of danger before her newly born child.
There is jealousy that will drive a child to turn another child into a zombie for their selfish reasons and justification. There is sacrifice and so much more.
Not all is dark and gloomy though as we do get some comedic relief moments here and there to ease all the tension in the air.
I especially enjoyed the moments between police detective Song Jae-Ik played by Lee Kyu-Hyung, Orangibberish by Lee Si-Hoon, and Jeon Ho-Chul by Park Jae-Chul.
Their difference in approach and maturity highlights all the more reasons why you need to keep calm and composed in any situation.
The characters All of Us Are Dead has to offer are vast and diverse in more ways than one, the show almost makes you feel as if you are there together with the people, trying to find a phenomenal solution.
Expect a lot of action, and out-of-the-box solutions as the students have to use whatever methods and equipment they can find at school to escape with their lives.
Definitely one of the best zombie apocalypse series I’ve seen if not the best.
Netflix has confirmed a second season and I’d love to express how a cliffhanger the ending of season one but that would ruin the story for those that have not seen it yet.
So I’ll my review here.
Let me know in the comments section below what you loved or didn’t love about All of Us Are Dead.
