South Korean zombie drama #Alive is now available to stream on Netflix.
Starring Yoo Ah-in and Park Shin-hye, the film follows Jun-u and Kim Yu-bin as they attempt to survive a mysterious virus outbreak that spreads through Seoul and turns its victims into zombies.
Neighbours Jun-u and Yu-bin "struggle to survive in an apartment complex from those infected with the virus".
"They are trapped alone inside their apartments without access to cellular data, Wi-Fi, text, or phone calls. Their only source of information about the outside world is the news on TV and what they can see from outside their apartment windows," the official synopsis reads.
The Netflix debut on Tuesday (September 8) marks the international premiere of #Alive following its theatrical run in Korea, where it grossed approximately $13.5 million in South Korean theatres upon its release, according to Forbes.
With the streaming service's considerable outreach, #Alive's premiere on Netflix will appeal to international viewers as the coronavirus pandemic continues.
Elsewhere on Netflix, Charlie Kaufman's mind-bending chiller I'm Thinking of Ending Things was released last week.
Starring Breaking Bad actor Jesse Plemons and Chernobyl's Jessie Buckley, this adaptation of Iain Reid's debut novel gives Tenet a run for its money in terms of confusing craziness.
On what I'm Thinking of Ending Things is really about, Buckley herself previously suggested: "I don't know how to explain it, other than it feels like… something. Honestly, it's very hard to explain. At all."
So there you go Netflix subscribers – two new films to add to your watch list.
