He wasn't married and he lived alone. These days he would be the 'weirdo'.

Yep, same here. I used to ride my bike all over town as a grade schooler, no helmet or even a cell phone.
As a coach for grade school age girls, and up, we have to fill out back ground checks, sign extensive behavioral guidelines and pass concussion training. It's all good. You can't be too safe with kids but is way more legislation than what I had in youth sports -and no guarantee that the adults can't still be monsters.

. The good news is this stars Rachel Nichols. The bad news is she wears a bulky cdc suit for most of the movie.
The first hour was better than I thought it would be. A lot of recognizable actors and more brutality than I expected. However, poor writing finally catches up for the last act as repeated head scratching moves by the players defeat my ability to care. 3 Head Pummeling Zombies

Terror Train was pitched as "Halloween on a train", and while it's not nearly as classic as Halloween, it does have a young Jamie Lee Curtis and a masked killer. What's unique about this killer is that his mask is always changing--it's a costume party so he always dons the costume of the last victim.
In addition, we get none other than a young David Copperfield playing a magician (what else) who dazzles his audience with several illusions and close-up magic, for no other reason than the fact that one of the producers liked magic. Still, it somehow works given the theme of the film that nothing is as it seems, and we're kept guessing right up until the final reveal, which is pretty spectacular.
My only complaint about this movie is that it tends to lag in the middle third when the students realize they are being bumped off one by one. Instead of ramping up the action, everything seems to just slow down as the train conductor takes more control of the plot. Things pick up again in the final third when the reigns are returned to Jamie Lee Curtis and the suddenly panicky pretty boy heel Hart Bochner. 80's-tastic horror!
3 out of 5 stars.
I saw this at original release and thought it was pretty lame. I think I watched this for last years Horrorfest and the 80's-tastic vibe made it funner than I remembered. Lol.
