Night Train to Terror (1985)
This. This is the type of 80s horror that I love. It’s crazy. You can watch it now on Shudder. It starts with God and Satan on a train trying to decide the souls of mortals. They have a black train conductor that serves them, it’s pretty awesome.
Night Train is an anthology film, like Creepshow and I really miss these. The recent VHS movie has resurrected the concept and I hope that we get more of these, it’s a great way to get a bunch of little stories and hear/see from new directors. As you probably can guess I also like anthologies in comics and other mediums, old Heavy Metal magazines were the best… which actually this kinda reminds me of them. You get random killing, blood, sex and T&A, the staples of the 80s and while it doesn’t always make perfect sense, it kinda fun to watch.
One of the stories, The Death Club… great concept. I don’t want to ruin it.
Did I mention this also is a musical? We are talking straight up 80s-style break-dancing, leotards and sweat-bands. It’s epic.
Did I mention it has Nazis? Oh yeah, there is no Terror Train without the SS. Just go see this.
