A fair example of how lowbrow Music Hall British comedy worked in the 1940s.

Audience Reviews for The Ghost Train


This is an old one, 1941 in fact an attemp to mix comedy and horror, Didn't do much for me. Just to much slapstick. 2 1/2 stars

A train travels through the night only to stop at an isolated train station. The people who disbark are rather mismatched and each annoying in their own way. They cannot arrange for transportation, so they must stay in the station overnight. The stationmaster warns them not to stay because of a haunted train that runs the tracks at night. After some slight scares and enjoyable comedy (which even ventures into sexual innuendo), they uncover what the truth behind the phantom train is. One character jokes about teaching a parrot to say "Heil Hitler." A decent horror-comedy from a time which produced many greats of the genre.
