Audience Reviews for The Sleeping Car

I love trains so it would be awesome to live in a trailer car but if I saw what the guy saw after he pulled back the sheet, I would've been gone.The Sleeping Car was alright.Its definitely not 1 of the 80's best horror movies but worth watching if you love 80's horror flicks

A horrendous cross between Nightmare On Elm Street and The Exorcist. The script and acting are just terrible.

(** 1/2): [img][/img] I have always wanted to see this movie, especially because I found the poster for it to be interesting. And, the film almost works for me. I liked the special effects and the story grabbed my attention but this film wants to be more like a comedy than a slasher flick. Every character in this film likes to give off a one-liner or joke right after another and it is hard to take anyone really serious during the movie. That is its main weakness and ultimately harms it. I wish they just stuck to the creature more and had been more serious in their execution of it all.
