Standard horror slasher with a stupendous scream queen : Jamie Lee CurtisReviewed byma-cortesVote: 6/10

The picture narrates how a group of fraternity executes an initiation prank to a young boy who is emotionally frightened . Years later , a masquerade party is celebrated on chartered hired train and someone mask wearing realizes a series of body count scabrously murdered . The train chief (Ben Johnson) will try to track down the killer among the numerous students (Jamie Lee Curtis, Hart Bochner , D.D.Winters : Vanity). The psychotic murderer is wearing the costume of each successive victim . Who's the killer ? .

Jamie Lee Curtis , as usual , interprets a scream girl (similarly at Hallowen , The fog , Prom night and Road games) in the role of a young student besieged by a cruel and sadist murderer . Jamie Lee Curtis shot this film back to back with the similarly themed slasher film Prom Night in late 1979 ; both films were shot in Canada ; Prom Night in Toronto and this one in Montreal . David Copperfield (as always) acts showing his magic numbers . The film has enough scares , it is plenty of shocks , terror and great loads of bloody and gore . Although technically well made is mediocre and offers a few novelties . Nice cinematography by John Alcott , photographer of ¨Clockwork Orange¨ and many classic English films . The film was professionally directed by Roger Spottswoode . He'll posteriorly attained many success and he'll direct much better movies , such as : ¨Shoot to kill¨ , ¨Under fire¨ and even one with James Bond/Pierce Brosnan . Rating: Average but entertaining .

A Slasher Movie On A Train...DifferentReviewed byacidburn-10Vote: 7/10

Jamie Lee Curtis was once again cementing her status as the Scream Queen, after the successes of "Halloween", "The Fog" and "Prom Night", but this one unfortunately wasn't as successful as the previous ones and remains the least remembered. But that doesn't mean that this movie is bad. A Slasher movie set on a train is something different I suppose, which makes Terror Train a stylish and inventive and really makes the most of it's settings. And I also loved the fact that the killer uses different costumes for each murder, pure genius.

The only draw back on this movie is that most of the murders happen off-screen, but more than makes up for it in the performances like Derek MacKinnion who plays Kenny a very well rounded performance, Ben Johnston does well in his role as the train conducter and even real life magician David Copperfield plays his part well. Hart Bochner plays the coward Doc annoyed me and glad he got his just desserts and once again Jamie Lee Curtis is brilliant as the lead heroine and gives the best chase scene in this movie which is the main highlight of this movie in my books.

All in all "Terror Train" is an underrated gem and a highlight on Jamie Lee Curtis's glowing CV.

Slightly Copied But Fun Slasher MysteryReviewed bybayardhilerVote: 7/10

Looking at the plot for 1980's "Terror Train", one could easily dismiss it off hand as a copy of "Halloween"(1978), with the exception of it taking place on train. However, for all the similarities between the two films, there is something to be said for "Terror Train" and its ability to tell a fun, engaging story. The film opens with a fraternity party prank gone wrong involving nerdy Kenny Hampson, the too smart for their own good frat boys, and an unwitting Alana Maxwell (Jamie Lee Curtis). Fast-forward a few years later and we find the same fraternity getting ready for a New Year's Eve costume party on board-that's right, you guessed it-a train. Little do they know, however, that one of their companions has been murdered, his costume stolen, and now a killer stalks the drunk college kids, taking their costumes after each murder so in order to confuse his victims! Will Alana and her friends figure out who the killer is before it's too late?

A big part of the fun of "Terror Train" comes from the mystery and simple tactics used by the filmmakers. By giving the killer different masks and identities, the producers here are able to incorporate a sense of mystery into the story. Who is the killer? What's his motive? Does this have something to do with what happened to Kenny Hampson? Another factor that adds suspense is where the film is set. Unlike in, say "Halloween", you can't just run out of the house or building because on a moving train rolling through the dead of winter, there's simply no where to run except to the next car and then the next, until you run out of cars to run to. First time director Roger Spottiswoode does well in creating a claustrophobic atmosphere and it's obvious he watched and learned when he was an editor for the legendary Sam Pekinpah. As far as acting is concerned, everyone here does an admirable job. Jamie Lee Curtis, despite the fact she must of been tired of the slasher genre by now, gives everything she has to the part and in typical fashion for her characters, does an excellent job of playing scared but still turning out to be the heroine we all know she is. In addition to her, we have character acting great Ben Johnson in the role of down to earth train conductor Carne, who finds out he has a lot more to worry about than just drunken college kids! With his friendly demeanor and good old country accent, Johnson is able to provide a beacon of hope and stability on the train ride from hell. And in what has to be one of the most random casting decisions ever, David Copperfield (Yes, THE David Copperfield) has a spot here as the mysterious magician hired to put on a show and does an excellent job, both as an actor and of course in magic. He couldn't have been much older than twenty here, but even then you'll wonder how he is able to do what he does without being endowed with supernatural powers. In short, "Terror Train" is a film that was made during the time when slasher pictures still had some quality to them and for that reason, no horror fan should pass up the chance to see it. So climb aboard, enjoy the ride, and watch your costumed friend very closely, because you just never know who might be under there!
