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.
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
The animation isn't top notch, but it's fair. Some unexpected turns in this one. I felt it was really well written. A great addition to the Train to Busan series.
So, they're just gonna overly dramatic fake cry throughout the entire film?! Sitting here trying to remember which character didn't cry. Loved Train to Busan and Peninsula but this was A LOT. Couldn't wait for it to end.
I liked this but as a prequel to Train to Busan, I expect more even from
Decent zombie anime.
