Tagline: Can it be stopped?

Plot: Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing star in this creepy tale of a long-frozen "missing link" discovered in the ice in Northern China. As the frozen relic is being transported to England via a trans-Siberian train, passengers begin turning up dead, their eyes drained of all color. This excellent forgotten horror gem has the look and feel of a Hammer production, though it's Spanish. Oh, and Telly Savalas is in it, too!

external linkA good movie that, with some legendary actors. Interesting plot, but gets dull in parts. Check it if you're looking for something to watch and you're not too turned off by old flicks. 6/10

external linkThe premise of this film is solid, but becomes, unfortunately, predictable; knowing where (and who) the monster is doesn't help the tension level. And I'm still trying to figure out the religious-nut character. Enjoyable but forgettable. 3/5
--Jack Witzig (ColdSpot)

external link"Horror Express" is an underrated masterpiece. Even jaded modern audiences should get a big kick out of it. It far surpasses most of the stuff being produced today. They don't make 'em like this anymore, folks.
