"Horror icons Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing made 22 moves together, but HORROR EXPRESS is one of the wildest....[A] deserved cult item..."
A.V. Club - 11/30/2011
"Poised on the edge of camp, HORROR EXPRESS nimbly cycles through genres, with drawing-room mystery and procedural elements bleeding into Universal-style monster effects and science-fiction hokum." -- Grade: B+
Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing star in this creepy tale of a long-frozen "missing link" discovered in the ice in Northern China. As the frozen relic is being transported to England via a trans-Siberian train, passengers begin turning up dead, their eyes drained of all color. This excellent forgotten horror gem has the look and feel of a Hammer production, though it's Spanish. Oh, and Telly Savalas is in it, too!
A monster who has been frozen for years is being transported on a train. But the passengers are in for a big surprise when the creature suddenly comes to life, and creates deadly chaos for everyone on board! Yikes!!!
