The 1964 film, A Hard Day’s Night, was a brilliant portrayal of a pivotal moment in entertainment history. The semi-biographical film captured The Beatles in the initial years of “Beatlemania,” showing the then-crazy career schedule of which George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, and John Lennon were thrown into following their breakthrough in international success beginning the year prior.
The film has since become a favorite of Beatles fans and rock scholars throughout the world over. It has also apparently caught the attention of skilled video editors, as someone with those abilities has created a mashup of the light-hearted 1964 movie with The Train To Busan, a relatively new Korean horror film which arrived in 2016 to modest success–7.5 out of 10 rating on IMDB, woo! The result of the mashup is anything but cheerful.
The brief but brilliant trailer was created by someone who goes by the name S4RK, and features footage from both films with the shots from The Train To Busan being toned down to match A Hard Day’s Night‘s 1964 image quality and color scheme. The person who made this wisely used the opening scene from A Hard Days Night, where the fab four were chased through a train station by a herd of uncontrollable fans. Throw in some horror-based musical themes, and you’ve got what could be the next great thriller! Fans can watch the video below to decide for themselves.

Speaking of Beatles movies, last week it was announced that Lord of the Rings genius director Peter Jackson would be at the helm of a forthcoming documentary film about the band’s final studio album, Let It Be. If Beatles fans really want a terrifying experience, they should catch Jackson’s film as soon as it becomes available, to see how dysfunctional and emotionally deteriorated the four members were by the time the 1960’s came to an end.
