Netflix’s ‘All of Us Are Dead’ is on the rise.
All of Us Are Dead ranked first worldwide from the day it was released, following Squid Game and Hellbound.
All of Us Are Dead has ranked atop Netflix’s TV Show ranking (worldwide) for two days in a row, according to FlixPatrol. Moreover, the show took the top spot in 44 countries. This is 19 more than 25 countries recorded yesterday. However, All of Us Are Dead ranked third in the US Top 10 TV Shows ranking, following The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window and Ozark.
Amid the worldwide interest in the show, media outlets showed mixed reviews. Variety wrote, “What this particular zombie series can instead offer unlike any other is that core group of teens running into danger, mourning constant deaths, figuring out how the virus is evolving, and forcing their way to safety through the familiar halls of their school with one ingenious scheme after another.”
Guardian also praised the work, saying, “What keeps it fresh, though, is the setting. Having high school students as the main characters is a very clever move. Flung about by their hormones, the students’ oversized reactions to the situation heightens the mood of the show.”
However, NME gave a 3-star rating for its overly abusive portrayal. “Sitting at the very heart of All Of Us Are Dead lies a resolute intention to unpack social issues, though that intent is largely buried under the show’s focus on gore,” they wrote.
Meanwhile, All of Us Are Dead centers around a group of high school students who are trapped in their school that became ground zero for a zombie virus outbreak. It was released on Netflix on January 28th.
