The Overview: Beware of Spoilers…
With All of Us Are Dead we get the zombie apocalypse from the perspective of high school students trapped in their school surrounded by the walking (and running) dead! There are subplots involving a father trying to get to his daughter, and the political/military aspects of dealing with the crisis, but the main story is how the students work together to survive.
All of Us Are Dead provides plenty of action with a large cast of characters (many who will not live through the season), This adds to the tension and raises the stakes of the series. Another interesting aspect is when a zombie variant appears. Is the virus mutating?
It seems like a real nit to pick when I say a little less high school drama would improve a zombie series set primarily in a high school. I enjoyed All of Us Are Dead and hope we get a season 2. All of Us Are Dead rates 3 of 5 stars.
