Thanks to Netflix I watched this one and I honestly loved it. Park Shin-Hye did an amazing job, I love her so much(she is such a talented actress). The last movie I watch with her as the main protagonist was #ALIVE(and it was amazing).Also, the actress Jeon Jong-seo who played the girl from “past” was super good in her role. Uhhhh it was great,would recommend it for a evening after work watch. Just keep in mind …there are lots of blood and maybe some missing body parts.

WOW! I’m impressed! The first zombie movie I actually enjoyed. Let’s start from the beginning … So on one of our date nights my boyfriend was browsing Netflix for something to watch together, and he found this one. I wasn’t really excited…because of zombies(I hate Zombies with a passion), but when I saw the actors…I knew we NEED to watch it. I loved Yoo Ah-In in Chicago Typewriter and the darling Park Shin-Hye (she was in kdramas like –Pinocchio , Flower Boy Next Door, Heartstrings) is my favorite actress EVER! And guys…THIS WAS AMAZING. Truly! The story was very interesting, and it had a unique thing- most of the “action” happens in an apartment complex. Was it gory? Yes! Was it overall gory? Yes and No! Like, it was bearable even for me a person who gets scared pretty easily. Overall I would recommend for you to check it out.

Laura, not wanting to get in the way of Carlos dream, encourages him to go. Now with both the hotel opening and the show in jeopardy Laura is faced with having to make some difficult decisions, both personally and professionally.
It’s pretty simple plot. A girl from a big city,comes home to her small town and there rekindles her relationship with an ex-flame. Pretty cliche,not mad at it. I really loved the daughter of Laura ,she was the cutest. But…the actual movie was boring…Yes,I said it, it’s boring. Like it wasn’t bad,just not the most interesting Christmas movie I have seen.
3 out of 5 stars!
THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN OUR MAIN COUPLE
Our main couple is married in real life,so I was very surprised ,because the chemistry was flat. I don’t know what happened but the whole movie the relationship felt just meh.
HOW IT ENDS
It’s a Christmas movie,so logical it’s a happy ending . I wasn’t mad at it,it was cute.
