|"Busan-Haeng" film poster|
Train To Busan is a 2016 South Korean zombie apocalypse horror thriller film which had its premiere at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival in May this year. In August, the film set a record as the first Korean film of 2016 to break the audience record with over 10 million theatre-goers. If you want to watch the trailer with English subtitles, here it is. I won't display the video here because the thumbnail is pretty terrifying, haha. The comment section is full of spoilers though, so beware.

I watched this film online when it came out and I loved it so much that I watched it again with my best friend and again with my sister. What struck me with this film was that it touches on social, political issues and is all about the father's sacrifice for his daughter as well as other relationships and bondings. It is action packed and keeps you on the edge of your seat and its message stays with you for a long time after having watched it.

I get that going for a remake will boost South-Korea's film industry but to be honest, I am furious. I'm not even kidding, nor am I exaggerating. I loved the film and I despise Hollywood for having to make a remake for the sake of it. They have ruined quite some original films with remakes already and I cannot for the sake of me see why they can't just give credit to the original producers, writers and the cast.

What do you think? Am I just being a little piece of poo? Or do you see it the same way? Have you watched the film?
Until then - I have to calm down,
