Overview

This horror/science fiction thriller, a cult favorite, takes place in 1907. Professor Caxton (Christopher Lee), a fossil-hunter has discovered some sort of pre-human creature frozen in ancient Manchurian ice. He is traveling to London with his find on the Trans-Siberian Express and is horrified to discover that his frozen man is missing, and corpses and zombies are appearing all over the train. It turns out that the frozen specimen is an alien with some unusual powers. The combined forces of Professor Caxton, his rival Dr. Wells (Peter Cushing) and a Cossack captain (Telly Savalas) are needed to save the world from this monstrous being. Skillfully told, with a good dose of humor, this film also features the train which appeared a year before in Nicholas and Alexandra.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Josh Ralske
Eugenio Martín's Horror Express is a goofily enjoyable 1970s horror film, of the sort many horror fans first encountered on television on rainy Saturday afternoons during misspent youths. The film features Hammer horror vets Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing--both in fine form--and a cunning extraterrestrial ape monster who robs its victims of all their knowledge, turning them into white-eyed bloodthirsty slaves to its will. Telly Savalas stirs things up effectively in a small but pivotal role as a thuggish Cossack commander. The film's plot has a dizzyingly complex science fiction underpinning that makes little sense and still manages to be very amusing. The real concern of the story is more of a mechanical passengers-being-picked-off-one-by-one motif. But it's executed with wit and energy, with the lines between good and evil refreshingly hazy, with cheesy gore effects, and with just enough allegorical food for thought to keep science fiction fans and Russian history buffs on their toes.

    interesting...

    It's actually pretty entertaining is my first reponse to the film. Of course I always think to myself that if I discovered a crate locked and sealed which was supposed to contain the missing link is suddenly empty... my first response would immediately be that the "fossil" had gotten up and walked away. There is an insane amount of the creature's arm in this film. Peter Cushing is of course Peter Cushing. Christopher Lee has one of the best mustaches I have ever seen in my life, not to mention the GIANT hat and red scarf.
