Italian Genre Cinema Collection No. 5
When young Giulia hops on the night train, she is unaware of what the following hours hold in store for her. It was supposed to be nothing more than a quick money for quick sex in the anonymity of her private compartment. But what starts out as harmless fun, turbs into an infernal trip into sheer terror when three shady characters declare the train their own personal hunting ground. Soon Giulia and her fellow travellers fall prey to their perverted games. Tortured and humiliated, they have only one chance to survive: they must strike back – with a vengeance! Soon the night train turns into hell on wheels, unstoppable in its blood-crazed race on the tracks of pure madness…
TERROR EXPRESS is probably one of the most radical revelations of Italian terror cinema. Ferdinando Baldi’s super seedy sleaze excess embodies the very core of the wonderfully perverted exploitation cinema of the 70’s – a shameless homage to LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT and I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, and at the same time a sign of what’s to come out of Italy in the following years.
TERROR EXPRESS is a dirty bastard of a film, and this is the reason for why it’s so great!
