In 2016, South Korean filmmaker Yeon Sang-ho released his zombie film Train to Busan. The movie became a hit, making $98.5 million on a budget of just $8.5 million. Train to Busan followed a man and his daughter as they hop a train at the very beginning of the zombie apocalypse and then — along with a small group of the living — must fight off hordes of flesh-eating undead as they speed along the rails.

Oh yeah, the zombies run fast…like, super fast, and the more people they consume, the faster they seem to move. It’s terrifying nightmare fuel.

Four years later, Sang-ho is back with Peninsula, the long-awaited sequel. We got our first look at Peninsula a couple of months back, but just the other day, distributor Well Go USA Entertainment released the official trailer. Check it out:

Peninsula will follow Jung-seok (Gang Dong-won), a soldier sent back into the diseased wasteland for survivors. But when they find some, “their lives will depend on whether the best—or worst—of human nature prevails in the direst of circumstances.”

I really, really enjoyed Train to Busan, mainly because it was a unique and fresh take on an overdone genre. Anytime you mix insanely fast zombies with confined spaces, you have my attention. In fact, I’d say Busan was better than Brad Pitt’s 2013 zombie flick World War Z, which also featured hordes of fast-moving undead who enjoyed cramming themselves into writhing, wriggling piles that would climb walls and tall buildings just to get to a tasty human snack.

Train to Busan was released in the U.S. digitally, and I’m hoping that will be the plan with Peninsula, which is supposed to be released in South Korea in July.
