Night Train to Terror

Night Train to Terror

Get ready to go off the rails with the cult 1980’s horror anthology Night Train to Terror.

A group of teenagers pass the time on a train by partying and dancing, unaware that the vehicle is destined to crash at dawn. At the same time, God and Satan contemplate three stories of human nature and bicker amongst themselves as to who will take the teens’ souls. Who will prevail when dawn comes around and the music stops?

Bloody and outlandish, Night Train to Terror is a low-budget film that only could have been made in the 80’s. Possessing a certain arresting absurdity, it’s little wonder that some have compared it to Plan 9 from Outer Space.


“In a decade where anything and everything went, Night Train of Terror had it all.  The best part is, it’s not just a single movie, but three films crammed into one.” – PopHorror.com

“This colorful B-movie oddity is a uniquely ‘80s production, the lunacy of which is refreshing.” – Anthony Pernicka, iHorror.com

“Night Train to Terror (1985) makes for a good Wednesday night at the bro’s.” – Melissa Antoinette Garza, Scared Stiff Reviews
