Screen Asia: Halloween Horror and Costume Contest – “Train to Busan”

Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017 – Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2017

08:00 PM – 10:30 PM


Train to Busan (2016)

Train to Busan is a harrowing zombie horror-thriller that follows a group of terrified passengers fighting their way through a countrywide viral outbreak while trapped on a suspicion-filled, blood-drenched bullet train ride to Busan, a southern resort city that has managed to hold off the zombie hordes…or so everyone hopes.

This film includes graphic violence and some strong language.
Recommended for ages 16 and up.

Before we dive headlong onto the zombie train, join us for a Halloween Costume Contest! Come dressed in your favorite costume — whether it’s a legendary monster from your favorite Asian folklore (Mongolian Death Worm, perhaps?) or your favorite go-to Halloween staple, for a chance to win a prize. There’s no need to sign up in advance, just bring your dressed up self to the Asia Society Texas Center. Before the movie starts, we’ll invite you all up on stage where the winners will be determined by audience applause. Prizes will be awarded to the crowd favorite and a runner-up.
