So it’s happy news from Lions Gate for terror hottie fans as Train gets a release date on DVD. Featuring terror hottie Thora Birch, you’ll be able to catch this one when it hits DVD November 17th.
As for the plot, anyone out there describing it as “Hostel on a train” isn’t likely to be too far off, which makes me sad just thinking about it. Anyway, it’s also being called a “quasi-remake of Terror Train”, which gives me some hope, also.
A college wrestling team is touring Eastern Europe–already a red flag–and after a late-night party in which most everyone got spectacularly drunk, several members of said wrestling team miss their train to Odessa. When an alternate train becomes available, the wrestlers take their opportunity…but what waits on that train is a fate much worse than any of them imagined.
As long as they lean more towards “slasher movie” than “torture porn”, then Train ought to come out all right. The other way, however, and this WILL become Hostel On A Train, and that will be a catastrophe of terrible proportions.
