Night Train Murders

Overview

The Last House on the Left was a morally bankrupt but highly profitable film about rape, murder, and revenge. The 1978 sequel, The New House on the Left, may even be more reprehensible than the original. Whereas the murder site of the first film was a remote house, the scene of the crime in the sequel is a train thereby negating the title.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Despite its cash-in status, Night Train Murders is actually an effective and surprisingly skillful horror movie. The plot does rigorously follow the structure of Last House on the Left but adds a fresh stylistic spin with its claustrophobic train setting and some interesting, subversive "battle of the social classes" themes. The performances are also strong: Irene Miracle and Laura D'Angelo are believable and sympathetic as the naïve teen victims, Macha Meril creates a frighteningly credible sociopath as the mysterious, manipulative Lady on the Train, and Enrico Maria Salerno handles the dark side of his upper-class doctor and father role with quiet skill. Best of all, director Aldo Lado helms the tale with a considerable amount of style, deftly deploying colored lighting and slick camerawork to enhance the unnerving mood especially during the film's grueling middle section. All in all, Night Train Murders is an effective horror film that is artful enough to rise above its knock-off origins and is well worth the time for fans of European horror.
