Great escapist fun!
4 January 2001 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

A passenger train is runaway (the brakes have frozen) on a winding, mountainous snow covered railway! Despite the fact that this is a made for TV movie, it movie was theatrically released overseas under the title "The Frozen Passage" and deservedly was a hit. It's unfortunate that it's not currently available on any format since it's an exciting suspenseful film that you can see with your family. the finale it also very satisfying. Come on Universal and release this one at least on VHS (DVD is ideal!).
