Sharing his car were only two other passengers: a young pre-med student (Leelee Sobieski) and a salesman (Steven Zahn). The veteran train conductor (Danny Glover) visits the car, shortly after the salesman notes the passenger deceased. While going through the man's possessions they discover a mysterious box. It can't be opened, but one can peer inside through some carvings in the box. The salesman takes an innocent peek, that will change all of their lives. He becomes almost hypnotically entranced. Each, in turn, follows suit. They all fall under the spell, and each tries to make the possession their own. It becomes a cat and mouse game, of the highest degree. And, why won't that darn box open?
This movie could easily have been on the Sci-Fi Channel, as a modern day version of, 'The Twilight Zone.' The theme was so similar to some of those, where the protagonist's values and moral compass, were put to the test by supernatural forces. And, how quickly, one could find his ethics in a state of total decay. The suggestion always seemed to be, that evil could be unleashed in almost, any man, in the right circumstances, and, with the right temptations. The NIGHT TRAIN is no exception, as it explores these human dynamics and the effects of primal greed.Read more ›
Absolutely one of the best independent films I have seen in a long time and very much real feeling. I remember buying this just based on the people who starred in it, even thought based on the name and cover it seemed like a "Midnight Meat Train" rip off. Luckily for me it was anything but and turned out to be on of the best movies I have watched in a while. Also it had nothing to do with any kind of story like that of the previously mentioned film.
The film follows a group of people, three to be exact, on a train for one night each minding their own business. But on this one night they were destined to meet on be on this train. Miles [Danny Glover] is the senior train conductor for his station and is growing tired of his life on the train. Chloe [Leelee Sobieski] is just a passenger on her way to see her parents and Pete [Steve Zahn] is just another passenger on the train and is just as harmless as the other two. That is until the three stumble across a dead man on the train that has a little box with him. As they each look into the box they each decide that the treasure inside could make each one of them rich, and fix all their problems.
So as they each come to terms with the situation they decide if they stick together and hide the box from the other passengers all will be fine. At the end of the night the will split what is in the box and all will be fine, but what about the body. As people come and go from the train with police and strangers who might know about the box the three become more and more distrusting. With greed running through their veins one thing must be asked, can they even trust each other?
Now sure I may have gotten over cliché there at the end but hey it was a fun indie flick, what can I say.Read more ›
