Really Awful Movies: Ep 350 – Overrated horror movies

A quick one this week, while we reboot and get back to regularly scheduled programming.

On the Really Awful Movies Podcast, a mini discussion starter: overrated films, or rather, films we didn’t quite warm to in the horror movie realm.

This includes, Train to Busan, Get Out/Us, Suspiria 2018 and Scream. Tune in. Or don’t. We don’t care!

Really Awful Movies: Ep 345 – Alive

#Alive (Korean: #살아있다; RR: #Saraitda) is a 2020 South Korean contagion / zombie film directed by Cho Il-hyung and Starring Yoo Ah-in and Park Shin-hye.

The flick is based on the 2019 script Alone by Matt Naylor (which co-stars Donald Sutherland, Canadian legend from Invasion of the Body Snatchers). Naylor co-adapted his script with Cho for a Korean production, and #Alive revolves around a lazy video game live streamer’s struggle for survival as he is forced to stay alone at his apartment in Seoul during a zombie apocalypse and all his neighbours turning into cannibals.
