Train’s First and Last Stop is DVD

Train's First and Last Stop is DVDYou don’t really have to know much about the film industry to know which films will see the light of multiplexes and which ones will be banished to the hellish shelves of Blockbuster to prey on unsuspecting renters. From the very first glimpses of Train, I knew this one would fall into the later category, but even I’m surprised that it sat on the shelves long enough for Ulli Lomell to get two movies distributed. Christ, this can’t be worse than anything he’s made since 1980, right?

But Gideon Raff’s Train is finally coming to DVD on November 17, according to Lionsgate’s press release. Touring Eastern Europe with her college wrestling team, Alex (Thora Birch – American Beauty) attends a debauched late-night party that causes her and several teammates to miss their train to Odessa. Her coach is furious, but a mysterious woman offers the group a ride on an alternative train. The coach agrees, and the athletes, exhausted and hung over, gratefully climb aboard. However, this train harbors a deadly secret, and for Alex and her fellow passengers, a blood-soaked nightmare is just beginning.

I’m not expecting much out of this one, but for those of you out there who’ve seen it, please, tell me how it is.

    I was curious to see this, then read some nasty reviews so my interest has dropped. Been wondering though when it was actually gonna hit.

    Wow, I feel really sorry for Thora Birch. I really do. She’s too adorable and talented to be doing direct to DVD dreck like this for a living.

    Yeah I heard it (Cabin Fever 2) was going to come out on several different dates several different times. Hell, I’m just holding my breath that Trick R Treat DOES finally make it out to dvd this October. First it was gonna make it to the big screen then no straight to dvd then the date was postponed hell I’m preaching to the choir here I assume.

    I wouldn’t say it’s good, but it’s definitely not terrible. Basically “Hostel” on a train, except “Train” is actually gory. It’s decently made, but doesn’t offer much beyond the gore. If that’s all you want, knock yourself out. If not, you are not missing too much.

    Sounds like an Asylum ‘mockbuster’ of “Midnight Meat Train”.
