One of the best films of 2016 was the Korean zombie film, Train to Busan, which is out now. With its success came a new project, the animated Seoul Station, a prequel to Train to Busan that’s opening in UK cinemas on March 17th and on DVD and Blu-ray April 3. FilmRise acquired the film for release here in the States, although no date has been announced.
As the sun sets around Seoul Station, an old man thought to have died sinks his teeth into the warm ﬂesh of a homeless person. Soon, the streets are ﬁlled with vicious zombies desperate to feed.
Hae-sun, a runaway, witnesses the frightening sight while her father and boyfriend desperately search for her. As the attacked become the attackers, the government declares a lock out of the station, leaving the uninfected to struggle desperately against the dangerous undead. With zombie numbers exploding, people are forced to ﬂee with no place to run to, not knowing if they will survive.
