Last year’s Korean zombie film Train to Busan was one of the most acclaimed undead tales to hit the big screen in a long time. Now, the movie’s many fans can watch what is being described as a “spiritual prequel” called Seoul Station. In the animated film, a man sleeping in the titular transport nexus becomes a catalyst for the pandemonium in downtown Seoul: a full-on zombie apocalypse. The rapidly-spreading infection propels what is also a family drama, one with parallels to real-world social horrors.
Seoul Station is directed by Yeon Sang-ho — who also oversaw Train to Busan — and is being released by FilmRise on iTunes, May 30. The film will premiere on VOD and DVD/Blu-ray, June 10.
