Editorial Reviews

AMOK TRAIN (aka Beyond the Door III) follows a group of American students to Yugoslavia. They meet up with their professor (Bo Svenson, the Walking Tall sequels, Kill Bill Volume 2) to bear witness to a sacred pagan ritual. When they realize that they're the ones to be sacrificed, they run for their lives and escape by hopping a train. But there's another problem: this train is possessed and is determined to reunite these kids with their horrifying fates! This train thirsts for blood and soon the students begin dying horrible, gruesome deaths. One girl, however, seems marked for an eternity as Satan's bride. With their method of escape turned against them, they must find a way off this train gone amok!

... which in the greater scheme of film probably makes it one of the dumbest movies I've ever seen as well, but hey, I don't buy movies titled Amok Train to become smarter(just cooler)! Amok Train actually goes by the original title of Beyond The Door 3, and helps solidify the trilogy of films as one of the strangest ever. Not so much due to the movies themselves, but because the lineup consists of a blatant Italian ripoff of The Exorcist(posibly the best of all three), a slow-paced sequel directed by Mario Bava (also known as Shock), and now this, an American directed film about a "crazy train"(thanks Ozzie!). The story has a group of American college kids taking a "field trip" to somewhere in Eastern Europe(you know, where people still live in dilapidated huts and stare in awe and disgust at foreigners while banging rocks together and praying to their "old Gods") before having to flee for their lives by jumping onto a train... a train from #ell that is! It seems that the host of this little trip is interested in one of the students, an outcast girl who still possesses her virginity, and it just so happens that a virgin girl is needed in order to ressurect the "prince of darkness." From here on we get to enjoy(kinda) some charming special effects, as the train jumps the tracks and runs people down in the nearby woods and swamplands... then jumps back on the tracks(all done with miniature models too!). Some truly inspired gore effects(including a girl ripping her own face in half to reveal a skull filled with maggots!) and a smidge of nudity help balance against some awful acting and a plot that's gone(much like the train) "amok." The main thing that the movie suffers from though, is that it just takes itself way too seriously, and with this subject matter... how can you?Read more ›

Released in edited form on VHS as BEYOND THE DOOR 3, this is the first time you can see the film in the US in its gory, unedited form. It is pretty good for what it is.

Although it was marketed as part of the Beyond The Door demon series, this film stands alone and is in relation by name only. It's about possession, but not of a human.

What made this film stand out for me and stayed in my memory for years since my initial viewing about 15 years ago was some of the sweeping camera work and the landscapes. This film is about a group of high school kids who go to a desolate European country, only to be violently murdered, save for one...who is needed for a sinister reason. The majority of the film takes place on a rushing train, and the camera angles and swooping effects are used well. The camera and landscapes are also put to good use to create a foreboding atmosphere.

The story is easy to follow and understand, but does have loop holes. Some of the characters are not fleshed out, and just seem to be there for the body count. The train sequence is a little long, but overall, I like this movie, and I am glad I own it.

And the count, and blood, is high.

Top this all off with a surreal ultra stereo soundtrack and you will have one haunting train ride you won't forget!
