Thora Birch, Derek Magyar, Gloria Votsis, Kavan Reece, and Gideon Emery all star in a film called “Terror Train”. Gideon Raff says the film has nothing to do with the 1980s film starring Jamie Lee Curtis of the same name, but for some reason, Dark Horizons insists on calling it a remake.
How can it be a “remake” if they’re not remaking anything? Sounds to me like they’re simply using the same title…which, honestly, isn’t that great a title…so I’m really not sure why they’re even using it.
The director had the following to say about the film. “I’m a big fan of that film, but this is not a remake, it’s an original screenplay. It’s about a group of American athletes competing in Eastern Europe and they’re supposed to get on a train to continue the competition. And our group of people miss the train ’cause they went partying the night before. They get on a different train to catch up with their teammates and horror ensues. I researched real crimes that happen here in Eastern Europe and based it on that.”
There is no Magician character like in the original either. So, I think it’s safe to say this is officially NOT a remake.
