Episode notes

Train to Busan

We have the wonderful filmmaker Terrie Samundra on the show this week. She’s the co-writer and director of Netflix’s new horror Kaali Khuhi. And she’s here to discuss and analyze 2016’s zombie classic, Train to Busan. She and April gush about all the things they love about this movie, down to the fascinating zombie choreography. They then move on to discuss Terrie’s career and the expectations that go along with being an Indian filmmaker. Terrie talks about how she is so tired of the fact that every movie shot in India uses an orange and yellow filter. Plus, Terrie also reveals that in Los Angeles everyone assumes she’s going to make movies about identity and the immigrant experience, which is why she finds genre filmmaking so freeing.
