Jamie Lee Curtis' shirt defies Einstein's relatively theory at movies climax, it just won't come off.

Easily one of the better 80s slashers. Terror Train is no cheesy movie and that's the reason that we are kept on the edge of our seats. This is quite a dark moody film once we get into the first half hour. Story is about a dating prank that goes wrong, and nerdy guy goes crazy. Fast forward 3 years and the same students that wound him up are now celebrating their graduating from med school by holding a party on a train of course our nerdy guy now turned serial killer hops aboard.
Known for Jamie Lee Curtis who was a genuine scream queen at this time, having of course starred in HALLOWEEN, a couple of years previously. Good acting, and tense almost Hitchcockian atmosphere, the train scenario does help. Look out for David Copperfield, well you can't him as he is in several scenes as a magician of course. This one really struck a chord even if the climax seems to go on at least 10 minutes longer than it should.
