Train to Busan Trailer

Since we missed both highly recommended movies, we decided to watch it all together in a One night Golden Village Horrorthon. GV did some props and playacting of zombies to spook the movie goers before the start of the movie, which was kind of refreshing and unexpected. Kind of remind me of Fright Night back in the university days. 

Well, we are glad we catch Seoul Station first, which kind of explain how the zombies came to invade Seoul Station, which leads on to the second movie about a train departing for Busan just as the zombies are attacking. Train to Busan is not really a typical horror show (though we will get to see plenty of zombie actions), it focus on humanity of a few individuals as they try to escape their current situation. A pretty good movie worth to catch over the weekend.

Rate: 8/10
