Bad Movie Day: Horror Express

Another accidental gem of a B movie with an outstanding cast. Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and Telly Savalas star in this absurd horror/science fiction mashup.

The plot is straight out of Doctor Who. A monster is found frozen in the ice, gets loaded on a train, thaws out and starts sucking on brains. Like most films of this sort from the 1970’s, we have model trains, a soundtrack with weird whistling and Telly Savalas shows up at a random point dressed like a Cossack.

The crazy thing about this movie is that is manages to be a lot of fun.
