5.0 out of 5 stars TERROR TRAIN: good looking slasher movie 12 Feb 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Three years after a nasty prank goes horribly wrong, a group of medical students hold a New Year's fancy dress party on board a moving train.

Terror Train is easily one of the most beautifully shot slasher films of the early 1980s. The lighting and photography design by John Alcott (Barry Lyndon, Clockwork Orange, The Shining)is meticulous at capturing the cold Canadian winter, claustrophobic carriage interiors and party lights. The use of a complex system of ordinary household bulbs and dimmers was incredibly ambitious for a slasher film shot in a mere 25 days.

Debuting director Roger Spottiswoode was not comfortable with the slasher genre and his film reflects this by being more focused on the production design than horror. Nearly every death is off camera, whilst David Copperfield's magic act and veteran actor Ben Johnson get a lot of screen time. However, Terror Train is still one of the best from the era. The way the killer adopts the costumes of his victims is very effective. He looks especially creepy in the Groucho mask. The final chase through the train carriages is really classy and the atmosphere is great. Personally, I prefer it to the other 1980 Jamie Lee Curtis slasher, Prom Night. The supporting cast is pretty good too, with Art "it's a Rolex" Bochner on great sleazebag form, Sandee Currie likable as Jamie's best friend and even David Copperfield being fairly effective as a possible suspect. Interestingly Terror Train owes nearly as much to Agatha Christie as it does to Halloween.

Terror Train isn't strong on kills, but it looks beautiful and is very evocative.

There are at least three versions of Terror Train on disc.

Anchor Bay's is very grainy and in full screen.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the good news we expected it to be! 19 May 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I was, like many others, looking forward to finally having
TERROR TRAIN on DVD. But how horribly disappointing this is!
Full-screen version, and a terrible transfer which looks like a
decrepit video seen through extremely dirty glasses. It is
almost unwatchable. I think I'd rather not have it at all.
Isn't Anchor Bay supposed to be some kind of guarantee for
good quality? Not any more, it isn't!
A VERY disappointed collector

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent presentation. Sadly Region locked. 8 May 2013
By Mr. K. Arts TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE SCREAM FACTORY BLU-RAY!!!

Following slasher movie conventions, a group of frat brothers and their sorority girlfriends pull a twisted stunt on a new pledge that goes horribly wrong. Flash forward to the end of college as the group are preparing to enter the 'real world' and the graduating year decides the best way to celebrate the end of college is for a cross country booze fuelled train journey with some stage magic thrown in for good measure. (an excellent excuse to stick David copperfield in the film, just before he made it big in stage magic.) Naturally this being a slasher pic a disgruntled killer gets on board and begins killing people.

Terror train is certainly a flawed movie. Anyone looking for a high bodycount and gorey deaths will more than likely come away dissapointed as for the most part the film is fairly restrained. Personally I really enjoy the film but some of the less favourable reviews on amazon for the film certainly make some good points. I should also add I quite enjoy PROM NIGHT a slasher where nothing much of anything happens for well over an hour! I don't need a string of gorey murders so long as the film is well crafted and atmospheric and fortunately this is where director Rodger Spottiswood comes into his own as the film has loads of atmosphere and some great performance (including scream queen Jamie lee Curtis). If your after a bodycount picture then I would advise caution, however, if you approach the movie not expecting a typical by the numbers slasher TERROR TRAIN can still be a rewarding movie.

Like the majority of Scream Factory's discs this one is region locked, so don't buy it if your not multi-region capable. (this is becoming less and less of a problem, which is a good thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars But this version! 28 Feb 2006
Format:DVD
This is the edition from 20th Century Fox and not Anchor Bay. Buy this for a pristine (for it's age) widescreen picture. The other reviewers below are talking of the inferior Anchor Bay version.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible train.... 11 Feb 2014
Format:DVD
A college fraternity prank goes bad and student ends up in the mental ward.

Four years later, it's graduation time, and the members of the fraternity decide to have a costume party aboard a train trip to celebrate their graduation.

Unknowingly to them, a killer has slipped aboard, whacking them off one by one, disguised in the costumes of the victims....

heres the thing about slasher movies from the eighties, why is it that all the awful ones are never remade? Prom Night isn't very good, but it's Friday the 13th compared to this poor excuse of a movie.

What ruins the whole movie is the beginning, as it gives the whole surprise of who the killer is and why they are doing it. Other films do have an opening scene like this, but usually the killer is someone looking on or observing, no the Kenneth Williams lookalike in his pants.

The setting on a train, has a very good claustrophobic feel, but the potential is wasted as they do not explore the whole train.

Kills are a little naff and mundane, Curtis looks fed up with the whole genre and it all ends abruptly and very lame.

One of the worse eighties slashers i have seen.
