October is only a few weeks away and Halloween will be with us which means Frightfest Halloween! Ahead of announcing this year’s line up, the dark heart of cinema has announced Train To Busan Presents: Peninsula is set to open this year’s Arrow Video Frightfest October event!
Four years ago the cult Korean Zombie film closed the annual Summer event. It was Frightfest’s most popular closing night, with the hotly anticipated stand-alone sequel, due to release in the UK this year, what better even to showcase the UK Premiere!
The annual Summer Arrow Video Frightfest was all in digital format, the October event gala film will be at the Cineworld, Leicester Square. Across three on Thursday 22nd October courtesy of those lovely people at Studiocanal!
FrightFest co-director Alan Jones commented: ”Ask any die-hard FrightFester what their favourite ever Closing Night film was and they will say the fabulous TRAIN TO BUSAN. The continuous standing ovations, cheers and applause engendered by our sell-out screenings of that instant genre classic has become the stuff of FrightFest legend. So we are delighted STUDIOCANAL is granting us the opportunity of opening our Arrow Video FrightFest October event with the epic stand-alone sequel TRAIN TO BUSAN PRESENTS: PENINSULA. The FrightFest audience really connects with Korean director Yeon Sang-ho’s stellar work and we have no doubt his latest Asian blockbuster will raise the roof once more with his resonant brand of turbo-driven, fantasy action entertainment”.

Four years after South Korea’s total decimation in TRAIN TO BUSAN, the zombie outbreak thriller that captivated audiences worldwide, acclaimed director Yeon Sang-ho brings us PENINSULA, the next nail-biting chapter in his post-apocalyptic world. Jung-seok (Gang Dong-won), a soldier who previously escaped the diseased wasteland, relives the horror when assigned to a covert operation on the quarantined peninsula with two simple objectives: retrieve and survive. When his team unexpectedly stumbles upon survivors, their lives will depend on whether the best—or worst—of human nature prevails in the direst of circumstances.
Directed by Yeon Sang-ho, the film stars Gang Dong-won, Lee Jung-hyun, Lee Re, Kwon Hae-hyo.
Their will be previews of the film on Halloween. Train To Busan Presents: Peninsula will then be released in cinemas on 6th November and available on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital from 30th November.
The full-line up for the October event will be announced on Thurs 17 September, along with ticketing details and the first news of the Halloween Digital event.
