Netflix viewers are raving over extremely thrilling and gory zombie movie they're watching 'over and over'

"One of the best horror/zombie movies I've ever seen."

An action horror which has just dropped on Netflix has sent viewers into a frenzy.

I think Netflix's dystopian thriller which was outrageously cancelled after three seasons was more than enough spine-chilling content for me, but if you're a horror fanatic and have been looking for a 'masterpiece' to keep you up at night with fresh nightmares, then the streaming service has you covered.

The movie may've been released back in 2016, but it has just come onto Netflix US and it's causing quite the stir amongst viewers.

Prepare to feel the hairs on your arms stand up on edge:

Plot and cast

The 2016 release stars the likes of Guardian: The Lonely and Great God's Gong Yoo, Jung Yu-Mi (Sleep), Ma Dong-seok (Badland Hunters) and Kim Su-an (Project Silence).

Directed by Yeon Sang-ho (Peninsula), the film was written Park Joo-suk (Project Silence) and produced by Lee Dong-ha (Love Returns).

The movie sees a zombie virus break out in South Korea and is mostly set on a train from Seoul to Busan - with all passengers forced to fight to survive the journey. Onboard are father Seok-woo (Yoo) and his estranged daughter Su-an (Su-an), Sang-hwa (Dong-seok) and his pregnant wife Seong-kyeong (Yu-mi), and high school baseball team player Yong-gyuk with his cheerleader girlfriend Jin-hee.
