This  movie is so fast paced it slaps all of that standard zombie sluggishness away and instead has an infection that rips though people in a matter of seconds and un-dead that can sprint and move as fast as anyone else. Throw all that into an enclosed place such as a train and damn if it isn’t what I have always wanted a zombie movie to be. Continue reading Movie Review: Train To Busan (2016)
