Not to be confused for stuntman-cum-director Johnny Martin’s latest horror, Alone, Jo In-hyeong’s own feature debut, #Alive, couldn’t have come in a more timely fashion in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. The film is penned by Jo along with co-writer Matt Naylor who shares credits on both titles.
Similar in nature, Jo’s film is aptly stylized in its title for its upcoming June release from Lotte Cultureworks in Korea. It stars Yoo Ah-in (Burning) and actress Park Shin-hye (Heart Blackened) who find themselves as two quarantined sole survivors of a deadly pandemic in which the masses have all turned into zombies.
There’s no word on any dates outside the region, but this looks to be another solid edition for those in the market for thrilling Korean zombie epics.
