1. Kingdom

2019 ‧ Horror ‧ 2 Seasons

Kingdom Season 3

If you are into films about zombie apocalypse and olden day swordsmen, this is the perfect show for you that combine both elements. Kingdom is a 2019 South Korean horror/thriller web television series written by Kim Eun-hee and directed by Kim Seong-hun.

Its scene first starts off in a poor village where people are suffering from hunger. After a desperate decision to feast on a human corpse, a mysterious plague begins to spiral out of control. Unlike senseless zombie killing, the beauty of this film lies in gradual discovery and learning about the zombies. At the same time during the apocalypse, the King is gravely ill. In a search for the truth behind his father’s illness, the protagonist, Lee Chang (Crown prince and rightful heir to the thrown) faces a political struggle with an opposing clan. This film will leave you on the edge of your seats as the plot unfolds and the protagonist attempts to survive whilst taking care of his people.

Reviews by both critics and audience for Kingdom have been outstanding. Plot aside, major kudos to make up artist who did a really good job in portraying realistic zombies.

2. Money Heist

2017 ‧ Drama ‧ 2 Seasons

The infamous Money Heist should be on anyone’s top 5 Netflix Original TV films. Money Heist (Spanish: La casa de papel, transl. The House of Paper) is a Spanish heist crime drama television series created by Álex Pina.

A criminal mastermind who goes by "The Professor" has a plan to pull off the biggest heist in recorded history – 2.4 billion euros by robbing the Royal Mint of Spain. To help him carry out the ambitious plan, he recruits eight thieves with certain abilities and who have nothing to lose. The beauty of this fi

lm lies in the brilliantly ingenious plan from “The Professor” as he goes head on with the police in a battle of wits and fancy negotiations.

The master plan is only revealed to the audience piece by piece, keeping you in utter suspense as the action goes on. Characters in Money Heist are also very well developed and relatable where no matter how brilliant the master plan is, the characters are real enough to elicit human emotions and possibly turn the plan south.
