Telly Savalas was paid $ 22,000 for his short stint on this movie in Madrid. Producer Bernard Gordon was delighted to get him for such a low price; Savalas was equally delighted, as he used the cash to get a seven-year lease on a West End apartment for his then girlfriend. See more »

Great teaming of Cushing and Lee in horrific chiller
A sadly neglected and underrated horror story. Every avid fan of either Christopher Lee or Peter Cushing should see it! Consider the setting; a trainload of passengers on the Transsiberian Express, with no way to go -trapped with a spooky prehistoric monster! It has a feel of low-budget italian productions, but it's not enough to spoil the great atmosphere of this old-fashioned fright night. And how many times do you get to see Cushing and Lee on the same side, battling the same foe? The climax, which resembles a zombie-movie could very well be the scariest in the history of all on-screen train rides!
