Trivia

This is the first film that made the biggest opening and surpassed one million viewers at the South Korean box office since the COVID-19 pandemic in February. After taking the top in the box office for 21 days, it achieved the top rank in video-on-demand sales for four weeks. Starting with this film, the vitality of the domestic theaters led to Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula (2020), Steel Rain 2 (2020) and Deliver Us from Evil (2020) until before the second pandemic in mid-August in South Korea.

#Imaginative.
11 September 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I rather enjoyed #Alive, it didn't feel like the average zombie movie. There seemed to be some parallels between the imagined threat here, and the very real threat, Coronavirus. There's a great scene where our man looks outside fearfully, and then looks at his food rations, something many people have done in 2020.

It's very nicely acted, nicely shot, it feels very fresh and current. The moments of horror were very nicely done, and never became too silly. Some nice twists, it's never predictable.

It has a real sense of doom, and terror about it, the way things gradually collapse, that said the action begins quickly, they don't hang around.

It's good, 7/10.
