Editorial Reviews

Take an excursion into terror with Jamie Lee Curtis in this classic shocker from director Roger Spottiswoode ( Tomorrow Never Dies).

It’s New Year s Eve, and a group of college coeds have planned a masquerade bash aboard a chartered train. What they didn’t plan on was that a knife-wielding psycho would crash the party and begin slaughtering the guests one by one! Who is this brutal costumed killer? Could it be the mysterious magician (David Copperfield) with a talent for swordplay . . . a former frat pledge with an axe to grind . . . or any number of other guests, both invited and uninvited?

Also starring Academy Award-Winner Ben Johnson (1971, Supporting Actor, The Last Picture Show), Hart Bochner (Die Hard) and D.D. Winters (aka Vanity, 52 Pick-Up). Features new commentary, exclusive interviews with the creative team behind the film, trailers and more!

It can be a challenge to review Blu-ray releases on Amazon. Theater reviews, VHS reviews, DVD reviews, digital copies - they often all end up under the same collection of feedback. I tend to rate the films themselves with the initial star rating, and cover the specifics of the medium I am reviewing in the body of the review. So, considered alongside the other films of the slasher genre, Terror Train is easily 4 star film, in my opinion. If you appreciate 1980s horror and understand the mechanics of film making at the time, this is easily one of the better entries of the period. The Blu-ray from Shout! Factory, is, however, a bit disappointing when considered alongside some of their other recent releases. I would probably give the disc three stars. It is worth buying, but if you are trying to decide between this movie and Shout! Factory's recent releases of The Funhouse, Halloween II or Halloween III, Humanoids from the Deep or Piranha, I would place this title at the back of the pack in terms of overall Blu-ray quality considering all factors. It's a good transfer, but not among their best. . .about three stars out of five.

This transfer features a 5.1 HD surround track. Unfortunately, the track is very front-heavy, with little real surround. A few early scenes have some nice ambient low frequency sound of the train in the background. . .but it isn't consistent. Some scenes have better audio than others. The first half of David Copperfield's on-train magic show has both decent audio and video. This leads to my next point: the video, sadly, is also inconsistent. There is a fair amount of damage to the print that has not been cleaned up. Scratches, blotches, hairs, etc., pass through the image throughout the film. They are heaviest during the first half.

I was born in the 70s and my little kid years were spent in the late 70s to the early 80s right in the middle of the slasher film craze that Carpenter's classic Halloween kicked off in 1978. During that time Jaime Lee Curtis was given the title of scream queen and every major and independent studio seemed to be churning out as many slasher flicks as possible for a quick profit; including such classics as Prom Night, Friday the 13th, Sleepaway Camp, Nightmare on Elm Street, Silent Night, Deadly Night and all the many sequels that followed, but the one that stood out more than any for my little kid brain was 1980's Terror Train starring the aforementioned Ms. Curtis. I saw this flick uncut on cable thanks to the perfect storm of irresponsible parenting and easy access to the cable box. Now as an adult I love this flick and marvel at how my imagination ran wild considering how low tech the effects were on this picture, but also the story is not bad.

A group of medical students play a terrible prank on one of the freshmen and the results are far from funny. A few years later their celebrating the new year with a costume party on a train and someone begins picking off each member of the group. They quickly figure out that the kid they played the prank upon is seeking his revenge, but they don't know who he could be on the train.

The transfer of the pic is not bad (then I don't think low tech horror pictures get the same treatment as award-winning movies) and honestly I just enjoy it for the cheesy effects and the twist ending. Plus the acting is good for a slasher flick.

Not your average slasher flick!!!! This was one of those download a torrent see how it goes thing for me. And upon watching it I noticed that this packed a stronger punch in the creepy department than most of these slasher films from the late 70's early 80's. The setting really makes for a claustrophobic ride to terror and the whole everyone's in costume adds a real who dun it vibe. Without trying to give anything away there's also an amazingly demented aspect to the film as well. For fans of slashers from the golden era this delivers that and more. Scream factory did a great job transferring this to high def. I enjoyed the special features but kind of wish there were more. But overall a great buy at a great price!!!

This movie is suspenseful not because you don't know who the killer is, but because you don't know what the person looks like. This is your typical slasher movie with blood and suspense. Plus it has Jamie Lee Curtis who is best known for running and screaming while defending herself from crazy killers. This movie keeps you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out the killer's face. You find out the person responsible has had issues before and is extremely mad. If you put a mad man on a train with a bunch of people he wants to kill then you get a death ride of madness. I really enjoyed this movie, and fully recommend it to those who like suspenseful movies.

Terror Train is perhaps one of the early 80s slasher flicks that really put Jamie Lee down as THE Scream Queen of the decade. I am a big fan of Jamie Lee and her work in movies, mostly noted for starring in Halloween (1978). That movie put her on the map in terms of female roles in horror movies. Terror Train is just one of her roles in her early days as an actress. Of course, it probably is not one of her best roles, but neither is Prom Night, another early gem. The movie takes place on a train with all her college coeds bidding a "Final" New Year's trip to usher the last remaining months of their time together. After a freshman prank goes "awry", the victim awaits for his ultimate revenge on the Seniors that did it. They are "tracked" down one by one until Jamie Lee's character finally realizes who may be the killer. I loved the music and the costumes, but this is more of a suspense thriller than anything. It's not scary and not that bloody. They did a decent job with the menu and the extras, but the actual film they used to do the bluray was really dirty and I was disappointed in the transfer.

All in all, good to have in your horror collection just for the extras and how it got made. The music made for the movie was great.
If you want a good clean transfer of the movie, I suggest you get the Fox DVD version. Add that to this set and throw the dvd this set came with out.
