Zombie Movies on Netflix: Halloween 2021
#Live (2020) NOT
Director: He Cho
Duration: 98 minutes
To throw: Yoo Ah In, Park Shin Hye, Jeon Bae Soo, Lee Hyun Wook, Oh Hye Won
The arrival of #Living emerged during what many would have felt at the time to be the peak of the global pandemic, and as millions sat at home trying to stay safe, many of those millions were sitting watching Yoo Ah In trapped in his apartment, surrounded by flesh-eating zombies.
#Living became the biggest summer theatrical release in 2020 and was also extremely popular with Netflix subscribers around the world. The movie has shown that some of the most popular zombie titles in recent times originate from South Korea.
Full-time streamer Oh Joon Woo witnesses chaotic scenes of a zombie outbreak surrounding his apartment. With few supplies, and cut off from the outside world, he is trapped in his apartment.

Kingdom: North Ashin (2021) NOT
Director: Kim sung hoon
Duration: 92 minutes
To throw: Jun Ji Hyun, Kim Shi Ah, Park Byung Eun, Kim Roe Ha, Ji Hyun Joon
We are technically cheating by calling the special unique episode of Kingdom North Ashin a film, but given the length of its feature film and its scale of production, it deserves to be recognized as such.
The liberation of North Ashin helped bridge the gap between the origin of the resurrection plant and the multiple plot threads of the first two seasons of Kingdom. However, it also made us want to see the third season of Kingdom even more, of which fans are still desperately awaiting news.
After losing her family and village as a child, Ashin’s quest for revenge sets her on a path that will bring the Joseon Dynasty and all of Korea to its knees.
Army of the Dead (2021) NOT
Director: Zack Snyder
Duration: 148 minutes
To throw: Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell, Ana de la Reuera, Omari Hardwick, Matthias Schweighöfer
Love it or hate it, no one can deny that Army of the Dead was one of the most polarizing Netflix Originals of 2021, which saw the return as director of Zack Snyder.
At the back of the film, a whole new cinematic universe is created by Zack Snyder, who will see an animated prequel series, the prequel movie Army of Thieves, and more.
After the Las Vegas zombie outbreak, the entire city has been quarantined by the US government, which is ready to attack the city.

Kingdom (2 seasons) NOT
Seasons: 2 | Episodes: 12
Duration: 45 minutes
To throw: Joo Ji Hoon, Ryu Seung Ryong, Bae Doona, Kim Sung Gyu, Kim Chan Yi
Before the release of Squid game, it wouldn’t be a stretch to suggest that Kingdom was the biggest South Korean original in the Netflix library.
The series is a wonderful example of how amazing South Korean cinema has become. Thanks to impressive cinematography, incredible costumes, extensive make-up and sets, it was virtually impossible not to have your eyes glued to the screen.
Most importantly, Kingdom has helped make zombies creepy again.
Exiled from court, Crown Prince Lee Chang investigates the origins of a mysterious and deadly virus that resurrects the dead and turns them into voracious carnivorous monsters.

The walking dead has seen a lot of ups and downs over the years, but there’s no denying that the series has been one of the most popular TV series of the past decade. The series is also one of the best frenzy you’ll find on Netflix, and the arrival of each new season on Netflix has become an annual fixture that many subscribers look forward to.
Rick Grimes, a deputy sheriff, wakes up from a coma to find the world has been consumed by an epidemic that has created hordes of flesh-eating zombies.
iZombie (5 seasons)
Seasons: 5 | Episodes: 71
Duration: 42 minutes
To throw: Rose McIver, Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley, David Anders
As the CW series go on, iZombie was certainly one of the most enjoyable and fun well-written dramatic comedies we’ve seen on the network. And while Liv’s character isn’t a zombie in George A. Romero’s traditional sense, the fresh take on one of Hollywood’s favorite and overused monsters was much needed.
When medical resident Liv revives herself as a zombie, she decides to work in the morgue in order to satisfy her need to consume fresh human brain. However, by consuming the brain of a corpse, it absorbs the memories of the dead.
