/ 05:21 PM October 16, 2016

Director Yeon Sang-ho’s “Train to Busan” won awards for best director and best special effects at the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival in Spain on Saturday.

The zombie thriller had received the grand prize at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival in July. Opened locally in July, “Train to Busan” was a box office hit and holds the record so far as the ninth best-selling Korean film ever.


Director Na Hong-jin’s occult horror flick “The Wailing” nabbed the award for best cinematography and the Focus Asia Award, while the Grand Audience Award went to director Park Chan-wook’s erotic thriller “The Handmaiden.”

Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival, one of the world’s foremost festivals specializing in fantasy and horror films, took place in the coastal resort of Sitges in Catalonia, Spain, from Oct. 7-16.
