Movie Info

It's Airplane on the rails in the made-for-TV Disaster on the Coastliner. A crazed engineer holds his employers responsible for the deaths of his wife and daughter. He gets even by setting two passenger trains on an irrevocable collision course. Salvation comes from a most unexpected corner in this otherwise thoroughly predictable disaster flick. The requisite all-star cast includes Mike Connors, Lloyd Bridges, Robert Fuller, Pat Hingle, E. G. Marshall, Yvette Mimieux and William Shatner. Disaster on the Coastliner premiered October 28, 1979.

Audience Reviews for Disaster on the Coastliner

  • Jan 02, 2011
    TV made suspense movie isn't really very good but if you're a fan of disaster movies or spoofs thereof this is one to see. It's hard to take too seriously since Lloyd Bridges' dialogue here really is a foreshadowing of his role in Airplane! As for the rest it's all pretty standard.
