Netflix’s “Sweet Home”: Action-Packed Monster Fest That Celebrates Humanity
I was pleasantly surprised when I watched Netflix’s "Sweet Home." I didn't expect to be so riveted. The Korean drama had quite a few heart-pounding moments as well as parts that tugged at the heartstrings. The 10-episode TV series revolves around monsters, but it’s ultimately about how people can rise to the heights—or sink to the depths—of humanity when faced with unimaginable horror. And sometimes, the ugliest monsters turn out to be the noblest of superheroes.The drama centers on the residents of a decrepit block of apartments. One day out of the blue, they find themselves locked in the block. When they attempt to break out, they discover that the world outside is filled with savage monsters. Even worse, some of the monsters are locked in with them. They have to find a way to work together and survive.
The individuals know they’re infected when blood gushes out of their nostrils. Only a few are able to withstand their inner beast and refrain from killing other people.
The last episode ends on a cliffhanger. Netflix hasn’t yet indicated whether there will be a Season 2. I sure hope there will be.
