Next up on the Netflix “must-see” K-horror list is the horror film Badland Hunters, the latest action film from South Korean auteur Heo Myung-haeng. The film throws audiences headfirst into a world shattered by an earthquake, where a huntsman named Nam-san (Don Lee) faces a desperate mission: rescuing a kidnapped teenager from the clutches of a deranged doctor and his fanatical cult.

But this isn’t your typical post-apocalyptic tale. While Nam-san navigates a landscape teeming with ruthless scavengers and feral mobs, he must also confront a chilling twist – a world overrun not just by living threats but also by the undead, all while on his rescue mission.

The new trailer hints at a ton of action, including bone-crunching fistfights, adrenaline-pumping chases, and enough zombie-slaying action to satisfy even the most jaded genre veteran.

Badland Hunters is a testament to Netflix’s commitment to showcasing South Korean talent, following in the footsteps of hit shows like “Kingdom,” “Gyeongseong Creature,” and “Sweet Home,” as well as the unforgettable zombie movie Train to Busan.

Mark your calendars: Badland Hunters unleashes its fury on Netflix worldwide on January 26th. Prepare to witness Don Lee face off against flesh-hungry ghouls, maniacal cultists, and the crushing weight of a broken world in this action-packed thrill ride you won’t want to miss.
