ZOMBIES!!! You know I'm here for it! So you know when I saw it pop up on my list, I had to watch it ASAP! From the very start I was instantly hooked. I couldn't put my finger on it - because I admit it was actually a pretty slow start, yet... not. It was different. I also couldn't shake the feeling like I had possibly seen it before? But, I pushed that feeling away and became engrossed in the movie but slowly but surely I KNEW I had seen this before... But... where... 

WebToon readers I'm here for you. You've seen this before as well. Y'all ready for this? 2015; Dead Days.
Yep, I kept telling myself "noooo surely not." but as soon as they got to the 8th floor, there was no denying it was definitely Dead Days. I tried to look up and see what came first but the only thing I could find was this is the adaptation of the english version... or the other way around? Not sure. I haven't seen the english version either. But it looked like it was going to release this year as well? Which is interesting. If they did get the idea from Dead Days, I kinda hope they give the creator credit. If it's vice versa, then I hope the same thing as well.

Now to the actual movie, I'm not even knocking it. It was kick ass and it's always amazing to see a good story come to life! The acting was on point and I couldn't help but laugh a bit through the movie. Especially with the "Last meal" ramen because of the commercial. Lol It's the end of days and they gotta throw in a ramen commercial. hahahaaaaaaa I see what you did there and it worked because even I paused to make ramen. X_X evil evil! Lol This coming from a person with a weak stomach too! LOL

All in all the movie was really good, just hope those that have that "I feel like I've seen/heard this before", you have. lol
