Beautiful cinematography. Current showings are much brighter and crisper than the old VHS of years ago.
Quite a bizarre mix of genres, but it's got Lee and Cushing at the top of their game. While it's hard to define, the malevolent force in this makes for an entertaining, claustrophobic horror flick. It's not Hammer, but if you like that flavor, this is for you.
Very underrated & entertaining! It's hard to believe a film with such a stellar cast can slip into the realm of forgotten horror cinema so quietly & seamless. Not only does the story have exciting & creative qualities this film also delivers a climax which should entertain most lovers of horror cinema.
"Monster? We're British, you know."
A tightly filmed, claustrophobically set, dialogue-brilliant, well done make-up, blessed with several good actors cult-classic adaptation of "Who Goes There?". It's not good enough to have won any awards, but it has certainly set the example for any future movies in the same genre.
Horror Express is a horror movie about a scientist who transports a prehistoric, frozen creature from Shanghai to London by train. As the creature arises from its hibernation-like sleep, it starts to kill the passengers of the train, sucking the memories out of their brains. The movie is quite atmospheric, as it features impressively decorated settings and a moody soundtrack. Also, the cast is very believable, and the performances make the hunt for the murdering creature entertaining. Still, the actual narrative is relatively shallow and only the last third is genuinely thrilling, which makes the movie unbalanced between horror and mystery thriller. Full review on my blog movie-discourse.
Great 70's euro-horror,great cast except for savalas.
great effects. Loved the white eyes.
Special FX and make-up might look so-so for its time, but superb acting, tight storytelling and truly spooky imagery secure its rightful cult status. Fans of "The Thing" will find it particularly delightful.
One of the better (and final) Cushing and Lee movies and it isn't a Hammer! They are both in the movie substantially (often they are billed but hardly in the movies!) and this terror on a train film certainly has the odd moment of horror (even though some of the ideas are repeated too often). Good atmosphere and there are worse films to watch!
This is an entertaining, if sometimes uneven movie. Lee and Cushing get to work together onscreen, which is most enjoyable. Lee gets to slay some monsters and Cushing comes equipped with one-liners and charm. That said, Telly Savalas is under utilized. While he's wonderfully sadistic (par for the course), he gets precious little screen time. The music is also an odd choice. It's dated and has a 70s meets Spain flourish to it. Not a bad movie, but not as good an adaptation of Who Goes There as The Thing from Another World or John Carpenter's The Thing.
