A workaholic dad is traveling with his estranged daughter, when one infected passenger becomes many. An anxiety-ridden spectacle for apocalyptic times, this action-horror’s premise sounds painfully cliché (zombies on a train) but reassures that there will always be new ways to tell tales of the undead. Behold as an allegorical dissection of the information age meets Hitchcockian conceit in this thrilling, South Korean gore fest. But this sort of chaos can’t stay contained, and with conflicting communication coming in, none of the survivors know what to expect. Is their destination their salvation? Or simply yet another glimpse of false hope?

Dir. Sang-ho Yeon, 2016, DCP, 118 min.
