Format: DVD
Remember the first generation of Russian rock `n' roll bands and how dreadfully awful they all were? I have the same sort of reaction to Trackman. The Russians are trying, by gum, but they seemingly have no idea what they're doing. The result, at least in this case, is a horror film that disappoints on just about every level. Ghost House Underground has released some pretty good independent horror films, but Trackman isn't one of them. This stinker from Russian director Igor Shavlak just flops around like a fish out of water throughout its entire eighty minute run-time. No suspense, no frights, and no entertainment value.

There isn't a great deal of story to be found here. A team of bank robbers disappear into a maze of underground tunnels to meet up with a co-conspirator and make their escape. Their plans for the "perfect crime" went awry during the actual robbery, so they have a trio of hostages in tow with them as they begin to make their way through the tunnels. Things start to break down when the other guy never shows up, introducing suspicions of a double-cross into an already turbulent group dynamic. To make matters worse, no one in the group knows the way out. That becomes an even bigger problem when a mysterious stranger who wears a gas mask and goggles, loves flourishing his trusty pickaxe (but also has an affinity with flamethrowers), and sports a pretty impressive collection of human eyeballs.

The only real difference between Trackman and a long list of underachieving American horror films is that this one is badly dubbed in English. As others have said, there's no originality in play here, the characters aren't very interesting or likeable, and there's almost no tension or suspense as to everything that takes place. In other words, Trackman is a boring slasher film, and that's really all there is to it.

Having been disappointed by western produced horror lately, I decided to venture further afield and look for some horror that didn't originate from the US or UK. What got my attention was Trackman, a Russian horror offering from Igor Shavlak.

After reading the synopsis, viewing the top-class trailer and teased with the idea of a horror movie from one of Hollywood's go-to bad guys: the Russians, I thought this would be a worthwhile purchase since it reminded me of Christopher Smith's London Underground horror flick Creep. Trackman brings together many elements easily recognisable as signatures of the genre: ragtag bunch of survivors being stalked by a near preternatural killer who is picking them off one at a time (and who looked to be a pretty decent villain from the poster and trailer), despatching them mainly with his nasty looking pickaxe and making trophies of their eyes. The chosen stage for this particular piece to play out on are the abandoned subway tunnels of Moscow and subsequently create a naturally claustrophobic and foreboding atmosphere for the lead characters to navigate. There is an obligatory backstory that is narrated by one of the characters to the others as they descend into the tunnels, neatly setting the scene.

Despite such promise from a much used and loved sub-genre, the slasher flick, the promising elements of Trackman never seem to come together well and I found myself fairly unimpressed with it all after it displayed a bit of promise. The location for the film had potential but felt too much like a studio production, as opposed to the grimy, dirty, real feel of Creep. The characters themselves are fairly two-dimensional and largely unsympathetic and so, the viewer is left with little concern over their fate.

So a botched bank job and flawed escape plan results in a group of people running about in a tunnel system somewhere in Russia. They are picked off one by one by a figure with a large pick axe. Heard it before? Well the set-up is similar to a lot of horror films these days but this one stinks. For a horror film there is zero suspense, blood or gore. The deaths are very bland and the film features a twist at the end which is....daft and rather silly. There are no redeeming features that i can think of and this film should be avoided at all costs. A waste of time and money.

This is a Russian Slasher Pic. It is about 4 bank robbers who take a policeman and two female tellers hostage and take them into an abandoned railway line to make there escape. Once there however they are stalked and killed one by one by a masked maniac who kills them then takes their eyes. All of the kills done by the killer are male which makes a nice change. Thats not to say the two women don't go through hell, a hell only one will make it out of...
For me this was a good horror a bit slow at the start but once it gets going it never lets up. A good throwback to early 80's horror. A good one for a good horror night.

There's very little light at the end of this tunnel 7 Oct. 2009

skip it and move on . . . 13 Oct. 2008
By Michael C. Mash - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I honestly couldn't get through this movie. I had a chance to sneek peek it - and quite honestly - it just sucked. Wasting 45 minutes was enough to just skip the ending and move on. Now understand that if there is only 2 or 3 great scenes in a movie - I will keep it for the sake of my collection. But this s**t was just boring. I even opted for the original language version - russian, I believe - but it still failed. The acting wasn't so bad I guess, but the story was pretty much non existent. I would say that any of these movies, be it ghost house underground, afterdark horrorfest, masters of horror - are all $5 movies and spending anything more is foolish even if you enjoy em. My advice it to rent - although I haven't rented in about 10 years!

EYE like it!! 21 Sept. 2010
By Deidra Cox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
OK, let's get real. TRACKMAN isn't going to win any awards. TRACKMAN isn't going to win a weekend race at the box office. But TRACKMAN isn't as bad as some of the reviewers have made it out to be. It's really pretty good, especially considering TRACKMAN is a Russian attempt at horror.

The plot is fairly simple. A small group of band robbers take hostages and decide to escape through a series of underground tunnels. Great plan!! Right? Wrong. Very bad idea. A psychopath with a fixation on eyeballs lives in the tunnels and he's eager to add to his collection.

Let me state that I am not a fan of the "torture porn" variety horror that seems to be flooding the market in the last few years. I prefer a more subtle approach to horror. But TRACKMAN had it's gory moments and the suspense level was fairly intense.

All in all, I'd say give TRACKMAN a chance. Judging from TRACKMAN, I'd say the future of Russian horror looks very bright!

Just stay out of the dark.

One Of The Best New Slasher Creations In Years And Years 30 Sept. 2012
By Stephen B. O'Blenis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
One of the first Russian horror movies to make it to North America, Trackman (original title - Putevoy Obkhodchik) is a well-made, well-acted slasher set primarily in an expanse of abandoned subway tunnels beneath Moscow. The title character is easily among the best slasher villains created in the last twenty years.

Trackman doesn't start out as a horror movie, though. It begins as a bank heist movie that takes some time to get into horror territory. That may be responsible for its less-than-stellar reception on these shores, but I didn't think that taking its time with the lead-up story was a bad thing. Remember how From Dusk Till Dawn started out as a criminals-on-the-run movie and took a good long time before anything remotely vampiric came into it? Or how Audition (Two-Disc Collector's Edition), for more than its first half, usually seemed more like a romantic comedy/sweet drama with only occasional jarring glimpses of the horror that would come kicking the doors in later on? This is kind of like those examples, especially Dusk Till Dawn. A bank robbery goes wrong and the robbers narrowly escape, taking with them a small group of hostages, and making their way into the aforementioned subway tunnels to try and find their way to the rendez-vous point with their pick-up man. One thing after another goes wrong, and they find themselves deeper and deeper in the old unused tunnels, where eventually both criminal and hostage encounter a new problem: the Track Man, an urban legend figure said to stalk the old rails beneath the streets (complete with a variety of conflicting theories as to his orign).

The Track Man, a masked figure in layers of thick, dark clothing resembling armor, is a character from the same set of molds as Jason Voorhees and Leatherface, albeit inhabiting a very different envirornment. He knows the city underground, and with motivations unexplained (it's a shame this didn't do that well outside of Russia: it was clearly leaving some stuff deliberately unexplained to explore in a possible sequel) stalks those old tunnels, viciously dispatching any who venture in. He wields some unique weapons of his own design and is a hulking, powerful figure, capable of quite a bit of speed and cunning when the situation calls for it. The criminals and captives end up forced to join forces to try and survive the Track Man, although the way that unfolds is a bit less predictable than it sounds.

In my mind, if a horror movie takes a lot of time getting from its opening to what would be called 'horror territory', that is Only a minus if the lead-in parts are poorly done and/or uninteresting, and neither of those apply here. Good acting and characterization; a story that's well put together despite its relative simplicity; great special effects in the gore department; taut suspense; and an immediately memorable, distinctive villain are all important here, and make for a great, highly underrated horror movie that bodes well for the growing output of horror from Russia and Eastern Europe.

Incidentally, though I watched the subtitled version, the disc also comes with an optional English-dubbed version for those who aren't into the subs.

Highly recommended for fellow fans of F13, Texas Chainsaw and the Laid to Rest (Unrated Director's Cut) movies.
New rule of thumb: any movie that uses backwards Ns to simulate Russian culture is bad. 9 Feb. 2011

Trackman (Igor Shavlak, 2007)

First: the usual warnings about watching movies dubbed into English apply. If you can see it with subtitles, by all means do so. The voice acting in the English dub is horrendous, and I have no doubt it contributed in a negative way to my feelings about the movie. Caveat spectator.

As Americans, and especially as Americans who like horror movies, we've gotten used to the idea that everyone and their mothers does it better than we do these days. Yes, America is releasing great horror films, but (a) rarely to the big screen and (b) they're small gems in a torrent of useless crap, a great deal of which you'll probably have to wade through to find them (unless you read reviews from Goat Central, natch, since I've turned you on to such delicacies as Lockout and Baby Blues over the past couple of years). So we're almost Pavlov-conditioned to see a horror flick made in a different country and think "oh, man, that's going to be awesome." Ware this feeling mightily, brethren and sistren, lest you get roped into watching moronic crap like The Ghost of Mae Nak, Frontiere(s), or the woefully underdone Trackman, an entirely unoriginal take on the killer-in-the-subway genre. As a side note: if you want a 2007 killer-in-the-subway movie that really, really works, look much closer to home: the Canadian flick End of the Line was miles better than this.

Plot: bank robbers plot to knock over a bank. Because that's what bank robbers do. Things go belly-up, and instead of getting away with fat stacks, they end up fleeing with three hostages into an abandoned subway station under a close-by junkyard. At which point one of the group asks the others if they've heard about the urban legend about the guys who had genetic experiments done on them who were supposedly shut away down here to die... and from that point on you know exactly where this movie is going. It's another mindless slasher flick with a couple of attractive ladies, a cadre of stupid guys, and a killer who lurks around in the shadows killing everyone in boring ways. Why on earth would you watch this instead of a hundred other, better slasher flicks? * ½
