High expectations were raised even before its release since it was revealed that “All of Us Are Dead” had been labeled with the highest rate, which is even higher than that of other Netflix’s original series, such as “Squid Game”, “Hellbound”, etc. 

As soon as it was made available on Netflix, those who binge-watched “All of Us Are Dead” all agreed that the drama was scarier than other zombie series like “Train to Busan” or Netflix’s “Kingdom”.

They pointed out that the scenes in which zombies appear were depicted so brutally, and the canteen scenes shown from episode 1 to episode 2 were the most shocking.

Moreover, audiences also praised the shots of zombie groups and body-twisting scenes as much more lively than that of previous Korean zombie works.

Many viewers applauded the speedy developments of “All of Us Are Dead”. They expressed opinions, saying the thrilling story flowed fast from the very first episode, and they could watch it in a blink of an eye.

“All of Us Are Dead” fans also complimented the cast actors’ acting skills, especially in creepy scenes. Lee Yoo-mi, who appeared in “Squid Game”, as well as Jo Yi-hyun, Ro-mon, etc., received enthusiastic responses for portraying their characters perfectly.
