Zombie movies

Contracted: Phase II (2015)
Director: Josh Forbes
Writer: Craig Walendziak
Starring: Matt Mercer, Marianna Palka, Morgan Peter Brown
-Drama, Horror, Thriller, Zombies | imdb | my rating: 4

Riley searches for a cure to the virus that took over Samantha before it consumes him and the entire world.

Amusing moment: zombies attempting to remove contact lens

Zombie speed: same as humans

Zombification: like a cold virus, also being bitten

Zombie mode: low-functioning turning evolving into high-functioning

Things to note: Beware of party dip ;-)

=====> After watching the first in this series I was curious enough to give this one a try. The story continues where the first one ends. As with the first, the transformation of human to zombie is the focus. The reason why people are turning starts to be explained. I have a feeling we are in for part 3 at some point.

Train to Busan (2016)
Director/Screenplay: Sang-ho Yeon
Starring: Yoo Gong, Dong-seok Ma
-Korea, Zombies | imdb | my rating: 5

While a zombie-virus breaks out in South Korea, a couple of passengers struggle to survive on the train from Seoul to Busan.

Amusing moment: the zombies chasing the train

Trivia: Yeon Sang-ho made an animation film 'Seoul station' which is the prequel to 'Train to Busan'. The events in Seoul station take place one day prior to the events in Train to Busan.

Zombie speed: fast moving zombies

Zombification: the process was quick upon being bitten or killed

Zombie mode: stayed at low-functioning

=====> It did well in telling a story about the meaning of family. Some funny moments created a campy feel which I liked.
