We definitely have a soft spot for Korean horror movies and thrillers. Now there’s a new Zombie movie called Train to Busan on the way. Watch the trailer here!
Train to Busan (with the original title Busanhaeng) is written and directed by Sang-ho Yeon. He’s mostly known for making animated films, so this is quite different. The film stars Yoo Gong (The Suspect) and Dong-seok Ma (Mother Vengeance) among others.
The plot for Train to Busan is described with the following juicy premise:
As an unidentified virus sweeps the country, Korean government declares martial law. Those on an express train to Busan, a city that has successfully fended off the viral outbreak, must fight for their own survival…
Train to Busan will premiere in Korea on July 20, 2016, where it’s expected to be the summer blockbuster of the year. Unfortunately, we don’t know when we’ll get the chance to watch it in the rest of the horror-loving world.
The quick pitch would be to describe this movie as World War Z meets Snowpiercer. That should give you a pretty good indication of where we’re at. And when you watch the trailer, this will make perfect sense.
However, you could be lucky and catch it at one of the many international horror film festivals. In other words; Keep your eyes open for any and every film festival near you. In the meantime, you can enjoy the trailer right now.
