Netflix’s new drama All of Us Are Dead has left viewers “too scared” to continue watching from episode to episode as the series follows an unfolding zombie apocalypse.
The Korean drama has been sitting on the UK’s top streamed Netflix offerings for days now as subscribers binge watch the new series – with some estimates it could even outperform fellow Korean smash hit Squid Game.
The series was dropped on Netflix at the end of last month and follows a group of trapped students as they try to escape their high school, which has become ground zero for a zombie virus outbreak.
The Netflix series makes it very clear early on that not all of the students will make it out of the school alive.
All of Us Are Dead is currently the most-watched show on Netflix in 53 countries, but fans of the brutal high-school zombie series have been left petrified by the addictive K-drama.
Netflix fans of the fast-paced, high-stress horror series took to Twitter to share how “scared” they were by the South Korean 12-episode series.
One fan wrote: “After watching All of Us Are Dead, I can proudly say that am now scared to sleep tonight. Any little sound scares me!!”
Another social media user said: “Currently watching #AllOfUsAreDead just finished the first episode.. I’m so scared to watch the next one”
A third chimed: “Time to get rid of my recent lack of nightmares by watching #AllOfUsAreDead, which had such an intense trailer that that alone scared me, because what is 3AM if not the time of bad decisions?”
A fourth fan tweeted: “How did you people watch #AllOfUsAreDead at night? It’s day time and I’m scared af”
Another wrote: “I’ll start episode 10 today and I’m already scared #AllOfUsAreDead”
A fellow fan posted: “The series was so good….was scared but was hooked till the end…#AllOfUsAreDead”
Many fans have also shared their comparisons of the series to megahit Squid Game, which saw cash-strapped contestants compete in children’s games with deadly stakes for a life-changing jackpot.
One fan said: “#AllOfUsAreDead I was wrong. Seriously, it’s a great drama. Beginning was slow, but gave it a chance, and it just got better and better. Can’t wait for Season 2. Totally up there with Squid Game.”
Another posted: “I liked #AllOfUsAreDead way more than squid game the characters were way more likable the death scenes were sadder”
The series even shares an actress, Lee Yoo-mi, who played Ji-yeong, or player No. 240, in Squid Game and has been cast as wealthy student Na-yeon in All of Us Are Dead.
