Some people have equally emphasized that fans of Squid Game would enjoy the newly released, given that the two shows share some of the same themes. However, others refute the comparisons, stating they are nothing alike and that All Of Us Are Dead deserves more hype than Squid Game.

Guardian Film Critic Stuart Heritage has said: “God, South Korea is good at this sort of thing. This is the third Korean Netflix original in just a few months to blow me away. Anyone who has seen Train to Busan will know that South Korea are world-beaters when it comes to telling stories about the undead.”
All of Us Are Dead is filled with action and gore, making it a thrilling journey.
The Verge’s Sara Merican added: “The high school setting in All Of Us Are Dead marks a unique departure from previous locations used in Korean Zombie shows. In the midst of the dread and destruction, the youthful setting opens up opportunities for adolescent banter and burgeoning love.”
You can now watch the whole first season on Netflix.
However, fans of Squid Game would enjoy the new series as the two shows share some of the same themes.
Variety’s Caroline Framke equally stated: “It’s a sprawling cast, and with the addition of several adult factions outside the campus struggling to keep the outbreak under control, episodes are dense and run longer than necessary. But the school plotline works, in large part thanks to continued ingenuity with the props and sets and the charismatic young cast, with Yoon Chan-young and Cho-Yi Hyun as notable standouts.”
