Terrified citizens fight for their lives against the viral undead in this thrilling prequel to the monster hit zombie classic Train To Busan, SEOUL STATION, a slick and scary, beautifully animated masterwork that doesn’t pull any punches.
Yeon Sang-ho (Writer/director, Train To Busan)
As the sun sets around Seoul Station, an old man thought to have died sinks his teeth into the warm flesh of a homeless person. Soon, the streets are filled with vicious zombies desperate to feed.
Hae-sun, a runaway, witnesses the frightening sight while her father Suk-gyu and boyfriend desperately search for her. As the attacked become the attackers, the government declares a lock out of the station, leaving the uninfected to struggle desperately against the dangerous undead.
With zombie numbers exploding, people without a home to return to, now have to flee without a place to run to, in order to survive.
In the animated prequel to the global breakout hit Train to Busan, see where the horror started…
We like it because:
2016’s Korean megahit Train To Busan, about a viral outbreak and passengers fighting zombies on a train, was a rollercoaster ride - when the film finished, viewers wanted to see it all over again and again. Now you can go one better, and watch this animated prequel - a superb companion piece to Busan, and a thrilling and frightening standalone film in itself.
SEOUL STATION is written and directed by award-winning Yeon Sang-ho, the genius behind Train To Busan, and the acclaimed animator behind The Fake and King of Pigs. Here, his unique style and breathless storytelling skills are at the fore, and if Train to Busan was last year’s best horror film, this is its best animated one.
Like Busan, here is a film with real heart, social commentary, and a whole heap of rampaging zombies tearing across the screen - and these zombies run, they snarl, and they bite! Beautifully animated, thrilling and chilling, SEOUL STATION is a great place to visit, but you wouldn’t want to catch a train from there.
While Train To Busan’s well-deserved reputation as a modern classic gathers traction, (and ‘one of the best zombie movie ever made’ according to Starburst), SEOUL STATION stands alongside it as an equally outstanding piece of genre cinema.
