The movie that Edgar Wright called the "Best zombie movie I've seen in forever." and "my favourite zombie film of the 21st Century", Train to Busan is nothing short of phenomenal.
With perfect action set pieces, the claustrophobia of being trapped in a zombie-filled train, and interpersonal and class conflicts brewing throughout, what starts as the simple story of a workaholic father taking his daughter to visit her mother in Busan becomes a gripping, heart-wrenching and terrifying experience that never lets up.
Yeon Sang-ho's live-action directorial debut ramps up the tension and terror in equal measure, but also gives us characters we care about and root for, as fatherhood is placed front and centre. This is one train you won't want to miss! Or maybe you will. Zombies and all that.
I would love to hear your thoughts on Train to Busan (Busanhaeng) !
