Night Train to Terror

Sitting aboard a train destined to crash at dawn, God and Satan watch three macabre stories in this amusingly awful anthology horror film cobbled together from three pre-existing films, all penned by Oscar-winning screenwriter Philip Yordan. An exercise in inadvertent surrealism, the three films were pared down into barely coherent narratives about a mental asylum that harvests patients’ organs, a secret club that plays bizarre games of Russian roulette, and an eternally youthful servant of the devil—plus a variety of stop-motion monsters, gratuitous gore and nudity, and a terrible pop band that knows only one song. Introduction provided by David Church, Indiana University. (35mm print is provided courtesy of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction. 93 min. Rated R.)
