Bringing the Genre Back from the Dead
As of late, the zombie genre has gradually been turning into a husk of its former, glorious self. An oversaturation of bad films have flooded the market; movies tend to focus more on action than the true horror of the situation and the absence of practical effects in lieu of dodgy CGI have all taken a toll on what was a once-loved mainstay in cinema. Train to Busan laughs at these recent tropes and provides a film that can stand with the classics. Filled with the heart found in the likes of ‘Maggie’ and coupled with the tense dread of the massive hordes in ‘World War Z’; this film is a combination of all the best elements of zombie films from over the years.
