I am honestly shook at how bad the rating was for this. I went in with VERY low expectations and it ended up being really good! There’s not a lot of good horror anime out there that is able to really capture that anxious tension and jump scare quality, but this did it!

If you’re a horror fan I think you’re gunna have fun. ...

Story(1/10) - First of all, just want to clarify that personally, although Train to Busan is a live-action film, it's way more melodramatic than this animated movie. It works for a zombie movie, it's nothing exceptional, it's just your typical survivors surviving in a zombie apocalypse, but that's not all. The story is overall pretty inconsistent, it would ...
