“Unbelievable. They had to send someone down into the zombie den to save Tsuki, and Dex volunteered. But, here’s the real plot twist:”
미쳣다.. 츠키가 살려면 누가 도르래타고 좀비소굴로 내려가야하는 상황이었는데 덱스씨가 내려감…………🥺🥺

Didn't expect to laugh a lot in #Zombieverse 😆IT'S SO ABSURD hahaha and the way the celebrity contestants are immersed and still laugh at theirselves is what I think is the heart of the show. Cos I think thats me in that situation lol. It's horror carnival fun with a budget

Yet, opinions on Zombieverse vary. Some praise its unique concept and thrilling moments, while others critique certain aspects. Take a look at what viewers are saying, including those who were left a bit confused.
Watched only one episode but I don't get Zombieverse. What is scripted, what is not? I mean surely they didn't ACTUALLY get into an accident right? And sometimes they do seem to act?

was so excited for zombieverse but it didn’t really accomplish what i wanted it too… would’ve been better if there was a producer or something that just told us the challenges instead of them doing a whole storyline but looks like there’s a season 2

I'm on episode 4 & I'm loving the show, but seriously, using famous actors as NPCs? It kinda breaks the immersion 'cause we know them & pretty sure the cast know them too. They should let those NPCs just be themselves instead of acting as random villagers or smthng#zombieverse pic.twitter.com/xL4bqjEi4a

Watched the 1st ep of Zombieverse and was disappointed. High production values, but the mix between reality show & zombie show didn't work for me.
All I wanted was Takeshi's Castle or Legends of the Hidden Temple but with a zombie apocalypse theme. Can someone make that show?
