It follows is a supernatural psychological horror noir film written and directed by David Robert Mitchell. The movie features one of the most terrifying opening scenes, in which we meet we're Jay, a young woman who has an uncomfortable sexual encounter. The affair results in Jay being chloroformed and tied up. After she’s getting her consciousness back, Jay is informed that she’s become a host for a creature that will kill her if she doesn't pass it on to someone else. The creature can only be seen by the person infected, making this a hardy film not just about sexual paranoia, but also the kind of psychosis where the main character questions very hold on her sanity.
Train to Busan is a South Korean action horror film directed by Yeon Sang-ho. The film mostly takes place on a train to Busan as a zombie virus suddenly breaks out in the country and threatens the safety of the passengers.

The story is a character study of one of the train passengers and his fractured relationship with his daughter and ex-wife. The uniqueness of the movie lays in the masterful creation of multi-dimensional characters, which only makes the story even more compelling.
