Bags are packed and e-tickets have been downloaded in preparation for tomorrow when various members of Team ScreenAnarchy head off to Korea for PiFan, Asia's biggest celebration of genre cinema. While excitement is bubbling over at the thought of the amazing lineup (and the chance to again witness Asian Editor James Marsh rock the karaoke mic) its time to take a quick look at another section of the lineup. So before you finalize your schedule, check out the picks from Vision Express, which 'suggests a new vision for international genre films, beyond the bounds of conventional fantastic movies'.

Standouts include Ben Wheatley's A Field in England, along with catching up with a selection from my adopted home, Japan, with the likes of The Round Table, Samurai Cat, Sweet Poolside, Wood Job! and Love's Whirlpool.

Click through the gallery below for a rundown of some of the treats Vision Express has to offer:

Doc Of The Dead (dir. Alexandre O Phillipe, USA) Asian Premiere

Anything zombie related that features contributions from Simon Pegg, Bruce Campbell and George Romero demands a look. Alexandre O. Phillipe, maker of The People Vs. George Lucas , takes a look at all things zombie related as he breaks down a genre which has been slowly taking over the world.
