The classic New Year’s Eve slasher starring Jamie Lee Curtis — now newly restored!
When a nerd receives a high-dosage of trauma courtesy some frat-boy buttholes, his only recourse is to crash a costume-party-train on New Year’s Eve. And also ferociously kill in the name of revenge while adopting the costume of each person he mutilates! Featuring a queer-tinged 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 the last of the great undiscovered 1980s slashers. This is an ultra-violent, disco-infested explosion of fun that gives us everything we want from a movie with a tagline that reads: “Terror wears many disguises . . . all of them deadly!” This includes life-enriching appearances from magician David Copperfield and Prince protégé Vanity.
