It’s not often that a Korean movie will open in Korea and the United States at the same time, but the newly minted Korean zombie horror “Train to Busan” is that exception and I can see why.

“Train to Busan” follows a train full of passengers headed to Busan during a country-wide viral zombie outbreak reminiscent of “World War Z” and “The Walking Dead”.

This is the first live-action film for director Yeon Sang-ho and stars Gong Yoo, Jung Yu-mi, Ma Dong-seok and Ahn So-hee. It’s currently playing in theaters with a limited release, for listings please check here.

Official synopsis:
TRAIN TO BUSAN is a harrowing zombie horror-thriller that follows a group of terrified passengers fighting their way through a countrywide viral outbreak while trapped on a suspicion-filled, blood-drenched bullet train ride to Busan, a southern resort city that has managed to hold off the zombie hordes… or so everyone hopes.
