Director Yeon Sang-ho's K-Horror masterpiece pits a father and daughter against a zombie outbreak outside the confines of their Busan-bound train, and within.

All aboard! As news of a zombie virus breaking out in South Korea begins to swirl through the news cycle, a high-speed train en route from Seoul to Busan becomes a microcosm for the chaos happening outside.

Taking the world by storm in 2016, Train to Busan is one of the biggest Korean horror films of the past decade.

Directed by award winning animator, Yeon Sang-ho (The King of Pigs (2011), The Fake (2013)), Train to Busan is his first venture into live action films, premiering at the 69th Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews. Since then, Yeon has produced an animated prequel, Seoul Station (2016) and a live action sequel, Peninsula (2020).

Train to Busan is a thrilling and unique take on the zombie genre, with a star studded cast featuring Gong Yoo (Squid Game), Choi Woo-shik (Parasite), Ma Dong-seok (The Eternals) and Jung Yu-mi, and plenty of heart. Poising questions of the collective and the individual, the film has received praise for its emotional notes and social commentary across the globe.
