All Of Us Are Dead | Movies To Watch If You Can't Get Enough

This content was paid for by Netflix and created by Looper.

"All of Us Are Dead" is a bloody good survival series, and it's bound to leave you hungry for more. The show, which is based on the hit Korean webtoon "Now at Our School," follows a group of teens at Hyosan High as their school becomes the epicenter of a vicious viral outbreak that turns their friends, teachers, and even family members into raging zombies.

The infected are fast, merciless, and nearly impossible to kill, so it doesn't take long for the disease to spread far outside the gates of the school. Meanwhile, those who do manage to make it through the initial scourge unbitten face a very tough road to stay alive once they realize that rescue from the outside is unlikely.

"All of Us Are Dead" is filled with heart-stopping action, but it's also anchored by the meaningful relationships that are being formed and tested in between all the gnashing. So in addition to tagging along for a thrilling survival story, audiences also get to see some emotional twists and turns that are sure to stick with you long after the final credits. If you have a hankering for more toothy storytelling after watching "All of Us Are Dead," here's a look at some films that might just satisfy that craving.


One of the story elements that makes "All of Us Are Dead" so compelling is how very modern the series is. While some shows pick up after zombie hordes have already leveled society as we know it, we get to watch the calamity happen in real time in the Korean series. And this means there are certain modes of modern technology that can still come into play in a big way — including internet access, social media, streaming, and even a drone.

The 2020 Korean thriller "#Alive" has a similarly novel atmosphere. The film follows a gaming-obsessed teen named Oh Joon-woo (Yoo Ah-in), who unwittingly manages to survive a sudden rash of zombie attacks by being glued to his computer and isolated in his family's Seoul apartment. As Joon-woo watches the world around him collapse into chaos, he uses his technological savvy to try and understand what's happening, and eventually, he also learns some more traditional survival skills, with the help of a friendly neighbor. In addition to bringing its zombie plague into the 21st century, "#Alive" also combines its intense action sequences with some real heart, so fans of "All of Us Are Dead" won't want to miss out on this thrilling zombie flick.


The world of social media and streaming is also a major part of the story in the 2021 Filipino thriller "Izla." The film, which has a comedic bend in addition to offering moments of true fright, follows a pair of brothers who link up with a group of six female vloggers and set out on a trek to the "Forbidden Island," located outside of the vacation town the women are visiting.

Unfortunately for them, there's a reason the place has been banned from travel, and our heroes soon find out the hard way that the place was the site of some experiments-gone-wrong that left the island overrun by zombies ... that have ninja skills. They might have gone onto the island with the intention of pulling a viral prank on their followers, but once the real danger emerges, the joke is definitely on these influencers. So if you're looking for a bit of light-hearted zombie fare after watching "All of Us Are Dead," "Izla" might be just the ticket.


Another part of "All of Us Are Dead" that resonates well with audiences is the way certain characters learn to grow, even in their most desperate hour, and become willing to sacrifice themselves for the people they care about. One character who really tugs on all of the heartstrings is Park Hee-su (Lee Chae-eun), a teenage girl who quietly gives birth to a newborn baby at a park and decides against abandoning it once she sees the world has descended into madness. Hee-su then desperately defends the infant against the swaths of infected until she finds a safe haven to hide in, and she even manages to protect the baby against herself after she winds up being bitten.

If Hee-su's plot hits home for you, chances are good that you're going to really love the 2017 horror drama "Cargo." This Australian pic takes us into an Outback that's been devastated by a viral infection, one that turns ordinary people into monsters within 48 hours of infection. At the center of the story is a man named Andy (Martin Freeman) who, after managing to protect his family from the initial outbreak for some time by sticking to his houseboat, has to venture onto the land to protect his baby daughter. His determination to shield her from the horrors of this new world is truly riveting and makes this movie a must-see.

Ravenous (Les Affamés)

Another movie that's bound to land with fans of "All of Us Are Dead" is the 2017 French-language film "Ravenous" ("Les Affamés"). Just as the series featured a select few infected who were much more than just hungry human-eaters, "Ravenous" offers a delicious new twist to the zombie world: These biters also engage in some very strange rituals that leave the survivors even more confused and afraid of what they're dealing with.

"Ravenous" takes place in a sleepy rural region of Quebec, Canada, where the few survivors of the outbreak spend their days scouring the woods and telling jokes. But once they realize that these curious infected people are actually operating on a system and they are in the direct path of this invasion, they have to band together and fight for their lives. Much like our heroes in "All of Us Are Dead," the characters here have only themselves to rely on, so be sure to add "Ravenous" to your zombie watch list.

Fear Street

One of the more terrifying aspects of "All of Us Are Dead" is just how fast the show's zombies can turn and move. They are wildly efficient at spreading the virus, and worse, they're incredibly brutal with their carnivorous attacks. From start to finish, the amount of bloodshed throughout the series is immense.

So if you're now in the mood to watch another group of undead killers who are just as mighty and merciless as the monsters in the series, 2021's "Fear Street" trilogy is definitely up your alley. The films, which adapt R.L. Stine's hit novels of the same name, take place throughout three generations of terror, as a centuries-old curse routinely turns ordinary folks into mindless slaughterers every few decades. Even worse, these serial killers occasionally come back to life and join forces to make the murderous mayhem even more brutal and hard to stop. 

At the center of the horrifying action is a group of high school kids who decide to stand up and stop the cycle of violence once and for all — if they don't become the next victims of it, that is. With a clever combination of slasher horror, freaky fantasy, and undead action, there's a little something for everyone to love in "Fear Street."

Rim of the World

While you won't find any zombies in "Rim of the World," fans of "All of Us Are Dead" will still enjoy the apocalyptic survival story at the center of this 2019 action-adventure film. The pic follows a group of misfit teens at camp who get a crash course on some very real survival skill lessons once an alien invasion upends their plans to canoe and zipline around all summer.

Like the young cast of "All of Us Are Dead," the kids get a front row seat to a frightening site as society crumbles before their very eyes, and soon, it's up to them to save themselves — and possibly the world — even though the situation is very, very bleak. So if you enjoyed watching teens team up to find a way to make it out of an impossibly scary situation in "All of Us Are Dead," "Rim of the World" will give you an all-new destination to turn to next.

Blood Red Sky

If you're an "All of Us Are Dead" fan, but you're looking for something with a different sort of monster, then you should try "Blood Red Sky." The German-British film takes place on a very perilous flight, as a group of hijackers take control of an airplane, not knowing that there's some precarious cargo on board.

A woman named Nadja (Peri Baumeister) is accompanied by her young son, Elias (Carl Anton Koch), aboard the late-night flight, and they're en route to New York for her to receive some much-needed treatment. What no one knows, however, is that her secretive disease is actually vampirism, and she's only been controlling her violent urges by injecting herself with vials of suppressants. But once the terrorists take over the plane and threaten her son's life, Nadja finally lets her fangs loose to fight back. 

The trouble is, even though she's tried to contain both herself and the spread of her venomous affliction, she risks turning everyone on board once she goes into beast mode. Just as half-zombies like Choi Nam-ra (Cho Yi-hyun) have to learn to control their urges to bite the people they love, Nadja has to suppress her own thirst for blood to protect her boy.

The 8th Night

Last, but certainly not least, "All of Us Are Dead" fans may enjoy the frightening action that unfolds in "The 8th Night." The 2021 Korean film centers on a two millennia-old myth about a demonic monster that tormented mankind until the Buddha was able to remove and bury its eyes after an intense fight.

In the present day, though, a professor decides to track down this monster's peepers, and he accidentally awakens one of the eyes. Needless to say, this is pretty bad news, as the eye plans on using a series of humans as stepping stones for the monster's return to Earth. To prevent the unleashing of such havoc, a group of monks have to work with a detective to stop this blight before it begins, creating an adventure that's both blood-curdling and deeply thoughtful.

With all of these great movie options available to stream right now, "All of Us Are Dead" fans should have plenty to chomp on next!
