Of course you did. Everybody did. That film – a monster success in its home country and an instant cult classic around the world – is awesome.

So good news, folks. A new action and gore-packed genre pic from the South Korean studio that produced Train to Busan is about to arrive in Australia.

It’s called Rampant and it opens in Australian cinemas on November 1, with advanced Halloween screenings on October 31.
