I quite enjoyed this movie. And it wasn’t just for some of the eye candy.

Hellooooo….

Back on track now Megan, (Ha! And I didn’t even mean to do that pun!). ‘In Europe, a group of American college athletes unknowingly board a train that will become one deadly ride.’ Yep, its one of ‘those’ movies. Group of friends go out drinking, something happens and they stupidly agree to do something that really doesn’t sound right, such as getting a late train that’s just magically going to where they’re wanting to go. Oh yeah, you give over your passports and let them keep them, that makes sense. That actually does happen. And then after all this, it all goes even more tits up. They decide to get on the train, give over their passports and then they get off at the other end, safe and sound…..I KID. No, they don’t. At all.

When I said it was one of ‘those’ movies, I meant one of those friends slasher movies. The ones that people groan about where they really shouldn’t. These films are brilliant, you can turn your brain off and just enjoy some good-looking people dying in many different and original ways. When people say they hate them, I laugh and secretly think, ‘more for me’… These movies are brilliant, and Train is no exception. Yes, they won’t win awards, yes a lot of them don’t need a brain, but what’s your point?! Train is a good old-fashioned ‘let’s do stupid things’ shout at the screen slasher film. With a slight twist AND a near naked run down the train, back to photo up top.

Don’t knock it.

Thora Birch was definitely put in this film for the ‘big star’ count, she is pretty much the only actor I’d heard of, but luckily, I’m not a fan of who’s in what when it comes to horrors. I’ll watch anything. It was a change from what I’d seen her in though, I’m still stuck on her character in America Beauty.. No one’s really really bad in this, as I said, it’s the general slasher movie, it wouldn’t win any awards and will probably not be known by people unless you’ve seen it but it’s good. I enjoyed it. Train is similar to the likes of Hostel, but I love Hostel so I had no complaints what so ever. Apart from some characters are dumb, but if they weren’t, there would be no killing.. Hey, you gotta break a few eggs..

Hello Derek…I don’t care if you’ve been in a gay film, you’re still hot.

The gore is there, the drinking friends, the fun, the scary stereotypical bad guys and even a little twist of why there are on the train. What more could you want?! I enjoyed this film so much, even though I own it, I’m going to recordĀ  it when it’s on the horror channel on Sunday… Yeah.

What’s not to love?
