Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,
Today I will be reviewing the movie, “#Alive”, it is a dope Korean zombie horror flick!!! I didn’t go in with any expectations when I put on this film. The short trailer on Netflix instantly grabbed by attention. I am a fan of foreign horror specially Asian, in this case Korean. I believe they have mastered the art of horror and telling a story that is truly scary! I was not let down with this film! From beginning to end it has you at the edge of your seat. I love that they used technology and how it can help you survive a zombie apocalypse. We are introduced to the man character, Oh Joon-woo, who is a homebody video gamer. You can tell he is addicted to technology.
The action starts right away, we see a “pandemic” spreading that begins turning people into zombies. He is stuck in his apartment complex and forced to survive. He uses a drone and cell to try to see what is going on! He comes to the harsh reality that he might be a lone survivor and his family is dead! It is very deep to, talks about depression in this type of new reality! Then there is a light of the tunnel when he finds another survivor Kim Yoo-bin across the way from his complex! I won’t spoil the movie, go watch it definitely worth it!
