Synopsis

A career bureaucrat, Seok-woo (Yoo Gong) has always prioritized work over family. The result is a divorce and a daughter, Su-an (Kim Su-an), whose only birthday wish is to go see her mother in Busan. When they board the high-speed KTX train at the Seoul station, little do they know that an unprecedented crisis is afflicting the city or that a young woman with strange bruises managed to sneak aboard before departure. Barely out of the gate, the train has suddenly become the setting for a series of savage attacks that turn the crazed passengers into zombies. In order to survive this speeding nightmare on rails and protect Su-an, Seok-woo will have to join forces with a two-fisted goon (Ma Dong-seok), a power-hitting college baseball star (Choi Woo-sik), a spunky cheerleader (Ahn So-hee) and an unscrupulous businessman (Kim Eui-sang). A brilliant, fast-paced update on the zombie genre, Train to Busan combines horror, comedy and action to superlative effect. Best not seen before a long commute.
