Incendo’s new TERROR TRAIN adaption is expected to delight horror lovers who have been screaming for this remake for years. “Terror Train” (1980) stars the original “scream queen,” Jamie Lee Curtis, as well as Ben Johnson and David Copperfield, and has long been regarded as a slasher/horror cult classic.
Canadian actress Robyn Alomar (“Utopia Falls”), who offers a standout performance and is likely to be proclaimed the next scream queen, as well as actor Tim Rozon (“Schitt’s Creek”), are among the newcomers. The script for the remake was written by Ian Carpenter and Aaron Martin (“Slasher”), and the film was directed by Philippe Gagnon (“Amber Alert”), who has worked with Incendo for many years. THRILL TRAIN is produced by Graham Ludlow and Kaleigh Kavanagh, with executive producers Graham Ludlow, Shari Segal, and Brook Peters all contributing to the project.
Alana (Robyn Alomar) and her friends board a party train to celebrate Halloween, but their good times quickly turn sour as the partygoers are murdered one by one by an unidentified assailant in this new take on the classic tale. Everyone is a suspect because of their disguises and the turmoil that surrounds them. Alana has to race against the clock to identify the killer before she becomes the next victim on the party train.
“We can’t wait for viewers to take a ride on the TERROR TRAIN, the tentpole for our annual ‘Terror on Tubi’ event in October. With an incredibly talented team of filmmakers and star-making performances, this movie continues to cement Tubi as a key destination for horror fans.”Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi
