Trailer: Zombies raid Seoul Station in Train to Busan's anime prequel

Seoul Station

Before writing and directing the live action zombie blockbuster TRAIN TO BUSAN, which was one of the best (and most action-packed) of last year's horror offerings, Sang-ho Yeon got his start in animation. So even though I didn't expect an animated prequel to TRAIN TO BUSAN to exist, looking back over the director's filmography it makes sense that he started making just such a prequel - titled SEOUL STATION - before going into production on BUSAN.

SEOUL STATION is now following BUSAN out into the world, which a theatrical release in the UK scheduled to begin this Friday, March 17th. A DVD and Blu-ray release will follow on April 3rd. In anticipation of this release, a trailer has been released online and can be seen below.

Written and directed, as TRAIN TO BUSAN was, by Sang-ho Yeon, SEOUL STATION has the following synopsis: 

As the sun sets around Seoul Station, an old man thought to have died sinks his teeth into the warm flesh of a homeless person. Soon, the streets are filled with vicious zombies desperate to feed.

Hae-sun, a runaway, witnesses the frightening sight while her father and boyfriend desperately search for her. As the attacked become the attackers, the government declares a lock out of the station, leaving the uninfected to struggle desperately against the dangerous undead. With zombie numbers exploding, people are forced to flee with no place to run to, not knowing if they will survive.

This one hasn't gotten very good word of mouth in comparison to its live action companion, but I'm still interested in checking it out. I really enjoyed TRAIN TO BUSAN (although I was disappointed by how things turn out for some characters) and would like to see more set in that world.
