Seoul Station, the animated prequel to the live-action hit Train to Busan arrives on iTunes exclusively in the U.S. today, Tuesday, May 30th. Both films are from visionary director Yeon Sang-ho, who also directed The King of Pigs (2011) and The Fake (2013).
A man sleeping in Seoul Station becomes a catalyst for the pandemonium in downtown Seoul; a zombie apocalypse. The rapidly spreading infection propels an authentic family drama, drawing mordant parallels to real-world social horrors.
Seoul Station is a fresh and terrifying take on the modern zombie film. Lots of thrills, chills and surprises.
