Slasher horror starring Thora Birch. When an American college athletics team travels to Russia to take part in a wrestling contest, some members of the group get left behind after a night of partying in a town along the way. Boarding a train in the hope of catching up with their teammates, they soon find themselves in a desperate fight for survival as they become the unwitting victims of an evil group of crazed organ-harvesting scientists.

There is indeed no doubt that comparisons with Terror Train are hardly possible and this is simply a Hostel or SAW aboard a Train. The idea of a Train where transplants and surgery take place isn't a new one to me but I felt that, in places, the idea was well played out. I am simply not a fan of the graphic gore which seems to the producers to be totally necessary to the plot. Yes, there is likely to be such stuff going on but I find the idea of the imagination so much more thought provoking than seeing the events on screen.
Apart from Thora Birch I was not familiar with the other cast but I felt the characters were so secondary to the gore that most seemed unable to be fleshed out (pardon the pun). The only one who was even close to being a real character for me was the Train's Conductor, he was quietly menacing despite seeming to be the perfect Conductor to start with. And what of Thora, herself? As always she looked stunning, even with the bloody make up, and her gorgeous curves were unable to be hidden despite the clothes. She came across as very much the terrified girl but when she finally snapped and went on the attack I was thinking, "Go girl! Give them as good as you've got!" I look forward to her future films.Read more ›
That's about it for the plot...
I couldn't take this film seriously, the acting is superficial at best with Birch looking almost bored as scream queen, there is very little emotion to her. And the bad guys look and feel fresh from an adult pantomime they are so over the top.
It's generic script steals directly from films like 'Hostel' in order to keep the juice running.
If you just HAVE to see people being hung with hooks, having eyes pulled out, legs sawn off and spines chipped by hammer and nail, I'd recommend 'Wolf Creek' , 'Frontiers' or 'Midnight Meat Train'. If you really want to see a stale imitation, dreadfully managed and utterly pointless I would recommend this.
I'm hoping that this brand of drama (if you can call it horror) is running the end of it's course. It's for gore hounds only, not scary, not intense (because the character development is so bad you just don't care about what happens to them). Poor script and all leading up to a predictably poor ending.
This was a wasted opportunity for something that could have been okay, if only I couldn't imagine the director pleasuring himself whilst filming, in order to prove himself in the ranks of Eli Roth.
This film is only for people who get off on watching torture porn, fancy Thora Birch or like trains.
Train finds it difficult to compete with other horror movies on any level. If you're a gore fan, the big set pieces aren't particularly well done and most of the "shocking" scenes we've seen a million times before. While I don't enjoy "torture porn" very much it doesn't bother me, and I can appreciate well done effects and the stamina needed to endure such scenes. There's one point where one of the main characters is dragged away from the train, presumably to meet a sticky end, and the camera cuts back to the passengers looking on (in what? Horror? Ambivalence?). Surely this is completely against the premise of such gory films? Why cut away before a scene that is supposedly part of the selling point of your movie? It seems strangely squeamish for a film which claims to compete with Hostel.
It is to be expected that character development will fall short in films such as these, but Train is on a whole other level. It is unclear whether the antagonists are masochistic and enjoy their work, or are simply following orders - indeed, apart from one woman and the conductor whose uniform is his identifier, all the "villains" fade into one insultingly stereotypical mess. One guy has an axe, so I suppose he stands out. The other passengers simply stand by, and don't even react to the horrors in which the protagonists find themselves. While I can see that this might be intentional to highlight the extremes to which people can turn a blind eye - and one scene in which Birch confronts them points to this - the film is so poorly written that these messages are pretty much lost.Read more ›
