I’ll admit it. Horror Express is one of my favorite movies on the planet. It’s impossible not to love a film featuring horror legends Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing squaring off against an armed with a whip Telly Savalas and a whistling demonic yeti who has the ability to suck your brain smooth of its knowledge, thereby turning you into a mindless white and bloody-eyed zombie!

When word broke this morning that this 1973 genre classic was hitting Blu-ray courtesy of MPI and Severin Films, we got immediately to work digging for artwork and extras. Alas … we have hit paydirt!

Eugenio Martín’s Horror Express will be hitting Blu-ray on September 27th with a high definition 1.66:1 transfer from the original negative.

Dig on the artwork and supplemental material after the plot crunch!

Synopsis
