Seoul Station

Suk-gyu is desperately looking for his runaway daughter. He spares neither money nor effort and after a while his search leads to results. One of his contacts claims to have found the girl. But joy is replaced by shock when he finds out that she works as a prostitute in the center of Seoul. Suk-gyu decides to pose as a client to get close to his daughter. But just before the long awaited and dreaded reunion, panic breaks out at nearby Seoul Station. The place is very popular with the homeless of the Korean capital. And one of them, who had died during the day, comes alive again and start attacking and eating another misfortunate. The undead cannibal epidemic spreads like wildfire. The authorities hermetically close off the city center and decide to wait out the end of the outbreak, until there’s no one left…

  • ★★★★ review by Chico Fireman on Letterboxd

    Antes de comandar "Invasão Zumbi", o coreano Sang-ho Yeon dirigiu as animações "O Rei dos Porcos" e "The Fake", trabalhos com temática adulta. Para seu primeiro trabalho com atores de carne e osso, ele pegou emprestado muito da lógica de seus longas anteriores, mas teve que atenuar a violência gráfica ou não de algumas sequências. "Seoul Station" é um prequel animado de seu filme mais famoso. Mostra como a epidemia de zumbis chega à estação de onde parte o trem para Busan. Em seguida, encontra outros personagens e contra outras histórias a partir da mesma premissa. Em comparação, "Seoul Station" é mais cruel, impiedoso e violento com seus protagonistas. Sang-ho Yeon não tem pudores e levar sua histórias às últimas consequências. O traço é mais simples do que nossos olhos estão acostumados, mas a caracterização dos zumbis é muito boa e os limites de violência bem maiores.

    Train to Busan's animated predecessor. There are some great scenes, plenty of action, a touching human tale, the same fast rabid zombies and top notch animation. It easily stands up as a film on it's own.

    Salvo por el doblaje Koreano que era como recibir puñetazos en la puta cara 9/10

    Part of Stockholm Film Festival 2016

    Same director and same theme as the immensely overrated Train To Busan is behind this animated zombie flick. Although the script is highly cliché and contain an equal amount of deadly cinematic sins, at least it is entertaining, due to the technical aspects of animation. Not nearly as gory as it could have been though. There's really no reason not to go all in, when the only limitation is your imagination.

    The not so super smooth animation is more than made up for by the gorgeous colour palette. Not the best animated feature you'll see but absolutely worth watching if you enjoyed Train to Busan.
