Alive Movie plot

Spoiler Alert…!

Stay Alive. It is the main theme of this movie. Because this movie is all about a survival game of Yoo Ah-in and Park Shin-Hye against zombies. Yoo Ah-in is a video game streamer in this movie. At the first of this movie, we can see that Yoo Ah-in is playing video games named PUBG or Player Unknown Battleground with his friends, and his parents are outside of the city. Suddenly he looks at the news on his television. Then he can know that a virus is spreading in his city. Actually, this was Zombie Virus. Due to this, infected people were becoming zombies.

Then he opens the door and looks outside. He notices that all the people are biting each other. That means the news is right. He becomes very afraid, and at that time, his parents call him. His parents tell him to stay alive. Then his journey starts, and his first aim becomes to stay alive. Then he wrote on a page ‘Stay Alive’ and clipped that on his parents’ photo frame as a motivation.

He locked himself in his flat and used the fridge as a barrier to protect himself from zombies. He uploads a help note regarding Stay Alive on social media. But nobody comes to help him. Because where he lives was totally affected by the zombie virus. The special thing is that these zombies remember their daily routines like hearing, watching, and moving.

Day by day, his food, internet, and network, everything is running short. Then he starts to drink. He was feeling good at the start, but after some days, he started feeling hallucinations that his family had come back home and everything was running normally. But that was not right.

Alive movie Review

Alive is the third successful zombie movie after Train to Busan and Peninsula. We all know that Zombies are not possible in real life, but the director, Cho Il-Hyung, nicely decorated this South Korean zombie movie with so-called zombies that were really normal people. This is undoubtedly an amazing movie with an outstanding concept. This movie is like Train to Busan, but Alive is likely a survival movie, not actually a zombie movie.

I personally recommend you all to watch this movie at least once. I hope this movie will provide some thrill and, most importantly, a survival experience. This is not a romantic movie and not also an adult movie. So you all can watch this movie with your family. So if you still have not watched this movie, go and watch this movie.

Actually, this movie was named after the short message from the actor’s parents, ‘Stay Alive.’ I have watched this movie, and I must recommend watching this one. However, I had tried to provide some primary information about this movie.
