All of Us Are Dead is an upcoming South Korean zombie-horror series written by Chun Sung-il and based on the popular webtoon Now at Our School by Joo Dong-geun. The Netflix series is about a high school that becomes ground zero for a zombie virus outbreak. The trapped students within the school must fight their way to freedom without becoming one of the rabidly infected themselves.
Netflix is claiming the series will offer a “fresh take” on the genre, however, that’s a statement we’ve heard before from PR folks. Maybe All of Us Are Dead will deliver on this promise.
The series will be directed by Lee Jae Gyoo who is known for his work on Trap, King2Hearts, and Intimate Strangers. Netflix seems to like the zombie theme lately. All of Us Are Dead will make the 9th Netflix original being released by the leading streaming site.
South Korea has already proven to be a great source of horror/thriller excitement with the critically praised zombie film Train to Busan and the global hit Squid Game. Can Netflix expose the world to another hit creation from South Korea? I hope so! We can all find out for ourselves when All of Us Are Dead starts streaming on Netflix this January 2022.
