Rated R, 97 minutes, DCP

When a nerd receives a high dosage of trauma courtesy of some fratty jerks, his only recourse is to crash a costume-party-train on New Year's Eve, and, in turn, ferociously kill in the name of revenge while adopting the costume of each person he mutilates.

Featuring a script by writer Judith Roscoe and Jamie Lee Curtis in her third starring role of 1980 following The Fog and Prom Night, Terror Train is one of the last of great un(der)discovered 1980s slashers. Its mix of violence and disco and Canada explodes with fun that offers the full gamut of slasher thrills with a tagline that reads: "Terror wears many disguises ... all of them deadly!" And, as a bonus, includes life-enriching appearances from magician David Copperfield and Prince protégé Vanity.

Restoration courtesy of TVA Films and the American Genre Film Archive.
