Trivia

In most countries wherever the film has been released including its native country, it has been given a rating around 15 but only in India and Malaysia the film has been rated 18, largely because both the countries don't have a 15 rating. See more »

Goofs

For a train to travel to its destination over vast distances someone, usually an operator from a remote location, needs to keep the track switches on path. From what this movie depicts it is unlikely that the switch operator will stay intact long enough to make the train travel this far and still make it to its destination. See more »

One of the best zombies film i ever seen
17 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

Very good scenario and the actors are excellent. This film keeps you in stress until the end.

If you like zombie film don't miss this great movie. Those monsters are very fast (like in "28 days later") and very very aggressive

Korean director are very good in making thrillers film. Now you can count on them for horror adventure and zombies stories.

You can also see "Seoul station" from the same director. A very nice animation from the same director and from witch "Busanhaeng" is the sequel.

2 hours of pure anxiety

Nice images of train crash
