    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!

    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.

    A deliriously daft film. Apes, Aliens, Brains, Counts, Countesses, Peter Cushing, Kojak, Christopher Lee, Mad Monks, Murder. Mayhem, Spies, Zombies and that glorious train (Runaway Train has got nothing on this one!). When Telly Savalas enters the scene it's like he's been jet-packed in from another movie entirely.

    The plot is (as the above indicates) pretty hard to summarize. Some have spotted a resemblance to the John Campbell's Who Goes There? which is the basis of the 1951 and 1982 THE THING films. There certainly are some basic similarities, but, of course, that template also describes a whole lot of genre films. What matters here is the mash-up of so many different stories and themes. Director Eugenio Martin takes the viewer on a truly wild and woolly ride.

    Dr. Wells' (Cushing) line is still a classic howler: Are you telling me that an ape that lived two million years ago got out of that crate, killed the baggage man and put him in there, then locked everything up neat and tidy, and got away?

    Dr. Wells again with the capper: Monster?! We're British you know!

    HORROR EXPRESS is in a special category: It's both so bad it's good -- and a pretty darn fun movie as well!
