Train to Busan review

A decent edition to the zombie hall of fame. In a world of Dawn of the Dead and 28 Days Later prequels, sequels, reboots and other regurgitated rubbish, this modest South Korean treasure throws a spanner into the mix… or rather into the train. Last Train to Busan is more an action horror movie with a whole lot of tongue in cheek, but also a few decent scares. Believe it or not, there are even some emotional moments. Never found myself on the verge of a tear in a zombie flick before.
