The Korean zombie series All of Us Are Dead skyrocketed to the top of Netflix charts in more than 25 countries upon its release. Judging from the reception elicited by its trailer alone, the show's success and social media fame had been anticipated from the start. With a handsome and talented cast, a heart-racing premise, and cliffhangers at the end of each episode, we can't blame you if you're one of the many who clearly binge-watched the entire show in one sitting. Now, if you're still stuck on a zombie-induced high after devouring all of the K-drama's 12 episodes, we've got just the list for you.

From supernatural monsters, to survival dramas, to dark teen fiction, here's a selection of shows you can also watch on Netflix if you just can't get enough of All of Us Are Dead.

10 Netflix shows to watch if you liked "All of Us Are Dead":

1. Sweet Home

Perhaps the Korean horror series most similar to All of Us Are Dead—aside from the obvious Kingdom, of course—Sweet Home revolves around a reclusive high school student named Cha Hyun-soo, who's left traumatized after losing his entire family to a tragic accident. Orphaned and alone, he moves into an old apartment complex called the Green Home. His hopes for a quiet stay is quickly upended when he realizes that the building is haunted by a malicious entity that turns its residents into monsters as reflected by their inner desires. Caught up in a real-life nightmare, Hyun-soo must now fight for his and his neighbors' survival.

Extracurricular may not have blood-thirsty zombies on the loose, but it might still pique your interest with its band of troubled teens thrown into the dark crime-drama genre.
