The newly minted first full trailer for Netflix’ new period-piece horror series has landed, and this looks like genuinely scary stuff. The trailer makes the subject of the series abundantly clear; while only a little over a minute long, the content is truly terrifying, with one character asking the desperate question of, “How can humans eat humans?!” The trailer does not reveal the cause of the village’s problems, but it makes it clear the problem is spreading and getting out of control.
Taking place in an ancient kingdom struggling with famine and corruption, a crown prince must stave off the zombie horde and uncover an evil conspiracy to save his people.
Based on Kim Eun-hee’s webcomic, Land of the Gods, the series stars Ju Ji-hoon (Dark Figure of Crime), Bae Doona (Cloud Atlas), Ryu Seung-ryong (Miracle in Cell No. 7), Kim Sang-ho (The Witness), Heo Joon-ho (Sovereign Default), and Jeon Seok-ho (Miss Baek).
The first season of Kingdom (directed by The Tunnel’s Kim Seong-hun) rises from the dead on Netflix January 25.
