Screener Squad: Peninsula

Peninsula Movie Review


When a sequel forgoes the tradition naming process and instead goes with “Name of Original Film Presents” before the new titles, generally you can be assured that it’s only kinda/sorta a sequel. Such is the case with “Peninsula”, which is titularly being brought to you by “Train to Busan”. Now, if you’ve seen that movie, you know it was SO good (some would argue, the best zombie film ever) that even this title sequence warning won’t be enough to steer you away. And whether or not it should is a matter up for some debate. Suffice it to say, “Peninsula” is bigger, considerably more ambitious, and….well…why not listen to what Chris, Santiago, Brad, and Wright have to say about it.
