#Alive (2020)

#Alive (2020) 98min | Action, Drama, Horror | 8 September 2020 (USA) Summary: The rapid spread of an unknown infection has left an entire city in ungovernable chaos, but one survivor remains alive in isolation. It is his story.
Countries: South KoreaLanguages: Korean

South Korean zombies.


Jun-woo is a computer gamer young adult who should have popped out for groceries but stayed in to play another mission. This means he doesn’t get literally bitten by zombies as a deadly infection rolls over his neighbourhood, but obviously comes back to bite him metaphorically as he starts to run out of food later in the movie.

Because he is isolated in his flat, and trying to wait out the situation.

Then he meets Yoo-bin, who’s in the same situation, but managing way better than he is.

I won’t spoil the rest of the plot. Yes, of course there’s the running, and the, ah, screaming.

I thought this was a solid enough outing. It didn’t do the isolation theme nearly as well or as long as The Night Eats The World did. Instead this is definitely a movie of three parts, with something different happening in each part. D id it suffer for that? Maybe. But then maybe not.
