In today’s episode its ALL ABOARD the HORROR EXPRESS from Hammer Studios

Horror royalty and Hammer alumni Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee reunite for this tale of mad monks, primitive humanoids and bloodthirsty zombies set aboard a train bound for Moscow – all aboard the Horror Express!

Originally released as “Panic on the Trans-Siberian Express” in November 1973 this classic B-move from Hammer films is set in In 1906, in China, as a British anthropologist discovers a frozen prehistoric creature and must transport it to Europe by train.


Renowned anthropologist Saxton (Lee) boards the Trans-Siberian Express with a crate containing the frozen remains of a primitive humanoid which, he believes, may prove to be the missing link in human evolution. But all hell breaks loose when the creature thaws out, turning out to be not quite as dead as once thought!

Directed by Spanish filmmaker Eugenio Martin, Horror Express remains one for the most thrilling (and, quite literally!) chilling horror efforts of the early 1970s.

Horror Express is rated R and runs for 1hr 28 min.
