Movie Info

Loosely based on an urban legend centering on haunted train tracks, director Harry Basil's sophomore feature follows a young girl who was recently released from rehab as she moves back in with her parents and sister. When strange things begin happening around town, the recovering addict discovers that some restless spirits have a curious means of making their presence known among the local mortals. It's been fifty years since a speeding train collided with a bus full of school children, and the trauma of that tragic event still looms thick in the air of this tight-knit town. Now, just as a troubled young girl gets out of rehab, a disturbing series of murders that seem strangely tied to that tragedy begin to occur all around town. Brittany Snow and Kristin Cavallari star in a psychological shocker featuring Lou Diamond Phillips, Sally Kirkland, and Josh Henderson.

  • [The mixture of supernatural and slasher elements] is a bit like a soufflé laced with Thunderbird wine: you might like one or the other, or even both %u2013 but not together.

    Not really very exceptional, but decent. Apparently based on a 'true' urban legend involving a school bus full of children colliding with a train and thus killing every child on the bus. Legend has it that when you stop your car in front of the tracks, the ghosts of the children will push your car across the tracks. As it turns out, the story is true. There is also the ghost train conducter, who doesn't take kindly with teenagers hanging around the tracks and doesn't mind showing them his disapproval in increasingly violent ways. Pretty generic, but also pretty entertaining. Does feature some okay gore, nothing groundbreaking but decent. A lot of the acting was sub par, but this is low budget horror so was about what I was expecting. The movie is paced well, and I was legitamately surprised by the ending. Worth a watch for horror fans. Doesn't reinvent the wheel, but manages to not insult my intelligence also.

    A creepy paranormal ghost story, but it does have some bad effects and stale acting.

    Cast: Leah Pipes, Kristin Cavallari, Josh Henderson, Andrew Lawrence, Lou Diamond Phillips, Sally Kirkland, Geoffrey Lewis Director: Harry Basil Summary: A small town lies in limbo some 50 years after a horrific accident that saw a train plow into a school bus filled with children. Can a troubled teen (Leah Pipes) fresh out of rehab unlock the truth about what caused the terrible tragedy? My Thoughts: "The poster to this film is scarier then the actual film. The story is what is interesting. The things that was done to the children was pretty awful. The acting was OK. Some acting was a little over the top which made some scenes a bit cheesy. Not a bad film to pass your time with. But there's definitely nothing special or scary about this film. Well, unless you scare easily."

    Great horror film. I watched this because of Kristin. She did a good job. The film is a little creepy and pretty original
