Directed by Yeon Sang-ho
In this chilling animated prequel to the Korean horror smash TRAIN TO BUSAN, a zombie outbreak spreads amongst homeless people in the area surrounding Seoul Station. At the same exact moment the chaos begins, a worried father arrives in the district hoping to track down his runaway daughter. But the odds are not in their favor, because as any fan of zombie cinema knows, the real bad guys are never the undead, but selfish monsters of the flesh-and-blood variety. Borrowing from George Romero’s playbook, director Yeon Sang-ho makes insightful connections between zombies and the castoffs of Korean society. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE.
In the animated prequel to TRAIN TO BUSAN, a father hunts for his daughter in the midst of a zombie outbreak.
Cast: Joon Lee, Eun-kyung Shim, Seung-ryong Ryu
This is one of the best low budget animated horror films, I have ever watched. The voice acting is superb and the excellent character animation is well done for a low budget animated film production. For a low budget animation production, the production value is very high for this animated film feature. I actually care about the characters, as the story unfolds, even though the animation director didn’t develop the characters in the screenplay. The animation director is developing and introducing us to the different characters as the story progresses throughout the film. This is the first time I have watched an animated feature film on Shudder, and I have to tell you all, that I am not disappointed. This is an excellent animated feature film! Shudder has the best exclusive varieties of feature horror films and made for TV Shows on the planet!
I didn’t really like “Train to Busan” that much, so I wasn’t expecting to really enjoy this one either, it I wanted to watch it because I was curious to see an animated movie here on shudder. First of all, I gotta day that the animation style in this movie sucks. It is boring, slow, choppy, hardly has any interesting movements at all, and seriously could have just been live action and nothing about it would have been any different. You need to ask yourself: does this movie significantly benefit from being animated? The answer is a hard no. There is nothing interesting, artistic, or dyankic about the animation style in this average zombie outbreak story. The only thing that really makes it any different from all the thousands of other zombie apocalypse stories out there is that it’s set in Seoul, instead of New York, London, or Tokyo or any of the other major cities that have seen their version of the zombie outbreak with the same cast of typical characters. The subplot in this movie about prostitution is actually the most interesting thing about it. I was not expecting that ending and the last fifteen minutes or so was a big one for me.
Very unlikable characters and the twist really didn't make much since .
This was an interesting supplement to Train To Busan. The cast of characters is full of flawed people. They make mistakes but they are usually believable. There is some decently Romeroesque social commentary to be found here. The plot maked a bit of a left turn but is still enjoyable.
this movie was dope af! the ending was unexpected tho.
