Zombie movies just don’t get much better than this one.
Every month we shine the spotlight on the latest horror films hitting Netflix, but the streaming service is known for dropping unexpected treats into the mix. Over the weekend, for example, they added director Yeon Sang-ho’s South Korean zombie movie Train to Busan (read our review); a movie so good it’ll probably make you forget you were kinda sick of zombie movies.
Horror fans who saw it last year almost universally agreed that Train to Busan was one of the very best movies released in 2016, and all of us here on Bloody loved it so much that we named it last year’s best foreign language horror film in our faux Academy Awards celebration. We wrote, “A lean, mean zombie film with zero wasted energy, Train to Busan is terrifying and intense while also being packed with so much depth and a surprising level of emotion. It’s one of 2016’s best horror films, foreign or otherwise, and it just might make you scared of zombies again.”
Needless to say, you should immediately add this one to your watch list!
In the standout zombie flick…
A group of terrified passengers fight their way through a countrywide viral outbreak, trapped on a suspicion-filled, blood-drenched bullet train ride to the Safe Zone…which may or may not still be there.
Train to Busan set the box office ablaze across Asia, smashed box office records in South Korea and became the biggest Korean film of all time. It stars GONG Yoo (The Age of Shadows), JUNG Yu-mi (Manhole), MA Dong-seok (Doomsday Book), CHOI Woo-sik (Big Match), AN So-hee (Hellcats), KIM Eui-sung (Assassination), and KIM Su-an (Memories of the Sword).
