2016 was a banner year for horror cinema.
The Conjuring 2.
It's a mini-revival that seems to have kept on to 2017, what with the white-knuckler, Get Out, still snagging 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
And yet, far and away, my favorite in this stretch of horror goodness is very much Train to Busan, a 2016 summer release.
You may not have heard of Train to Busan because it's a foreign movie, and some folks treat sub-titles like cooties.
Any self-respecting gorehound will tell you some of the best horror movies are found overseas.
Train to Busan murdered at the Asian box office.
American film studios are trying like mad to acquire the rights, and I hope they don't get them.
I don't see the sense in recreating what's already a masterpiece.
The Raid movie agrees with me.In a zombie setting, when you hear news of mysterious fish deaths at the reservoir or a "minor leak in the Biotech District," that's the cue to head for the hills.
What's so tremendous about this movie is that it presents a strong emotional core.
Focus is on the strained relationship between an inattentive father and his little girl.
Seok-woo (Gong Yoo) is a preoccupied fund manager.
I guess he does care for his elementary school daughter Su-an (Su-an Kim), enough that he's willing to fight his ex-wife for custody of her.
Except Seok-woo is a bad father, one who neglects his kid, misses her recitals, forgets her birthday..
Follows a scene that demonstrates why it's a bonehead move to have your assistant buy the gift for your kid.It's Su-an's birthday, and she guilt trips her dad into taking her on the bullet train so she could visit her mom in Busan.
And, a bit later, maybe you blame the unobservant train attendant for allowing that one sickly-looking girl to sneak onboard.Man, not even roadkill is safe in this movie.
As the train barrels along on the first leg of its nightmarish ride, as it hurtles from the capital city of Seoul to the southern city of Busan, the camera gravitates towards the other passengers.
And, for all the other reasons why this movie is so damn boss, it's absolutely the acting that makes us care about this movie.
The characters are interesting and fully-realized.
