All of us are dead review:

It's a zombie survival web series. As a result, it has a lot of potential to be a fantastic, suspenseful, and thriller series. It is, however, a simple drama aimed primarily at teenagers. It's a foregone conclusion that a group of students can outlast monsters who only know how to eat people. You might assume you'll be able to survive a real-life zombie apocalypse, but you're wrong. A high school becomes the center of a zombie virus outbreak. Students that are trapped must fight their way out or risk becoming infected with the rabid disease in the All of us are Dead Korean drama 2021. This is a high-level summary of the drama. The good news is that this film strives to incorporate several vital survival tactics that I haven't seen in other survival plays, such as how to create a toilet. The disadvantage is that it may have focused more on real-life skills, making it more realistic than some ridiculous teen show.

Coming back to the cast performance, each character delivers outstanding performances, and you'll want to cheer for them passionately. The romance is also enjoyable to see, increasing your interest in the show. The personal growth of the characters is given minimal weight when it comes to character faults. So many outstanding performers are squandered because they are killed off in an unplanned manner, making the audience feel dumb for expecting a more satisfying conclusion to their performance. They killed the adults who were given so much screen time, in the beginning, to demonstrate that teenagers are self-sufficient. The drama's biggest issue is that it valued quantity over quality, which may have been a bonus because the more characters you have, the more dynamic and flexibility you can generate in the drama. Instead, they've dropped the previous hints at first, just to wrap them up and throw them away like trash. 

Watch the trailer here:


It's a straight-up classic teen zombie drama, full of heart-pounding action, a cast of characters that some may identify with, and very heartbreaking and terrible passages in the middle and near the end. The entire group puts in fantastic performances, and the friendship and love sides of their relationships are well-developed. Whereas on the other hand, with all of that big celebrity cast, gore, zombies, and survival suggestions, it appears intellectual, but it isn't well-executed. The actors of the series were not given the opportunity to perform to their full capacity. It was more focused on zombies and bloody violence. The plot may have been more exciting, but it took a fairly predictable downward spiral.

You should give it a watch if you're searching for a simple, basic zombie drama.
