Is #Alive actually scary?
Not a lot of us know how we would handle being alone and isolated during a zombie outbreak. It’s a difficult thing to grasp being cut off from everything and everyone you know and love with things like the internet, running water, and food quickly slipping away as the darkness sets in. Questions begin to plague the mind, the worst of which being the manner in which death will come, from starvation or the cannibal corpses banging on the door trying to get in?
The 2020 South Korean zombie film #Alive offers Netflix subscribers a graphic and enthralling look at how one video game live streamer’s attempts to survive an undead invasion.
#Alive follows Joon-woo, who lives with his parents and spends most of his time live video game streaming. But things change when an infection begins to rapidly spread and turn its carriers into flesh-eating zombies. Unable to escape, he barricades himself in his family’s apartment, but they re nowhere to be found. What follows is an exceptional modern take on how horrific surviving an ordeal of this nature can really be and provides plenty of thrilling sequences that will keep viewers in a state of trepidation all the way to the very end. If anything, this Netflix original scare-fest is a fine example of survival horror done right and is definitely one international film fans around the world will not want to miss out on.
