I've owned at least a couple of public domain versions that were washed out, blurred, and grainy. This verion is crisp and clear, with vibrant color and a lot of clean up done. I won't say it's pervect. I saw a couple of spots of imperfection, but they were few and far between. This looked as good as any of the Hammer releases to me.
Very happy how this release turned out, especially given what had to be dated materials. Now if someone can just do something with Dr. Terror's House of Horrors.
In 1906 China, Professor Alexander Saxton (Christopher Lee, HORROR OF DRACULA, THE RESIDENT) unearths a frozen fossil in the Manchurian province of Szechuan that he believes may be the "missing link." Determined to bring the fossil back to England, he crates up the creepy creature's remains, drags it to Shanghai and boards the trans-Siberian Express train, where he encounters professional rival Dr. Wells (Peter Cushing, FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED, SHOCK WAVES). During the trip, an alien entity trapped within the icy corpse is released, possessing various passengers, absorbing their knowledge and memories, and then moving on, leaving blank-eyed corpses in its wake. The two British scientists set out to identify and destroy the creature, but their efforts are complicated by paranoia among the survivors and the arrival of an overbearing Russian military officer (Telly Savalas).
HORROR EXPRESS is a delightfully claustrophobic and suspenseful mishmash of Gothic horror, zombie, sci-fi and serial killer tropes, with a dash of 70s Satanic possession elements tossed in for spice.Read more ›
The best way to describe this film is "Murder on the Orient Express" meets "The Thing". A strange prehistoric missing link creature in discovered in a frozen countryside by Christopher Lee's character and is transported on a train. Cushing plays Lee's professional rival, but they soon join forces when they discover the creature is a not so dead alien and is on the rampage turning passengers into mindless zombies.
The movie's not perfect. It has some awkward dialog in some spots, but other then that this film is an often overlooked diamond in the rough. If your a fan of films like the Hammer Studios horror films or just curious about older horror movies of yesteryear give this one a try. The new Blue-Ray edition of this classic by Severin has given this movie the treatment it deserves with some interesting extras.
The film itself is great - in my opinion, far superior to any genre films Hammer/Tigon/Amicus produced in the 70's. An alien fossil thaws-out and infiltrates an isolated group of humans. Sound familiar?
I watched this movie many many years ago and it's on Bluray now with a CLEAR CRISP picture! (I'm not sure what these other reviewers are crying about the picture?)
The picture quality is great and awesome! Get it!
Now I can finally throw away my $1 poor quality DVD that I bought at the dollar store!

A great horror classic with the great Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. Terry Savalis also makes a small appearance and he's great too. The movie is very atmospheric and scary. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Jero Briggs
