Watch Now on Netflix: Train to Busan (2016)
I saw Train to Busan last year (it got an honorable mention on my Top 10 Horror Films of 2016), but it has finally come to Netflix where hopefully more people will be able to see it! This Korean zombie flick is action-packed with wonderful character development and some truly gut-wrenching scenes.
It is about a man and his young daughter who become trapped with many other passengers on a speeding train while a zombie outbreak occurs in South Korea. They must battle hordes of infected zombies as they speed their way through a quickly deteriorating Korea to one last stronghold in the city of Busan.
Train to Busan does an excellent job of setting the scene, building up the tension and keeping it suspenseful through its entire running length. I love it how it shows the very beginnings of a zombie outbreak and just how quickly it spreads. It also has some nice (and not so nice) surprises as to which characters make it (and don't make it) through the gauntlet of the ever-growing zombie horde. It will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat!
The film also develops its characters well so that you care about what actually happens to them. You even might find yourself wiping away some tears throughout the film as there are several heartbreaking scenes in the film.
If you want to watch an entertaining, action-packed, roller-coaster of a zombie film, then I highly recommend you check out Train to Busan. It is one of the best zombie films I've seen in years, and you can watch it streaming on Netflix or buy it on Amazon!
