The success of “All of Us Are Dead” came months after the release of another hit Korean thriller “Squid Game.”

Like the smashing Korean content, the new K-zombie also received positive responses.

“Like “Squid Game” before it — the only comparison I’ll be making between this show and Netflix’s recent smash Korean hit, I promise — “All of Us Are Dead,” makes the most out of its nightmarish central location to otherworldly, dizzying effect,” a review by The Variety read.

“Paced like a bullet and emotionally resonant when it needs to be, Netflix’s new Korean zombie show makes for an immensely bingeable 12 hours of TV,” The Indian Express’ Rohan Naahar wrote in a review.

“All of Us Are Dead” premiered on Netflix last Friday.

The streaming entertainment service said it will launch more than 25 compelling Korean shows, its largest number to date.
