Storyline

Margaret and Lisa, high school friends, take the night train from Germany to Verona to spend Christmas with Lisa's family. They flirt mildly with male passengers, including two randy delinquents in their 20s, Blackie and Curly. The four of them end up in a first-class cabin with a well-dressed woman of about 30 who has pornographic photographs in her valise. Egged on by the woman, the thugs and a male visitor to the cabin menace and then assault Margaret and Lisa. Meanwhile, we also see Christmas Eve and morning scenes at Lisa's home, where her parents are polite to each other while discussing divorce. On Christmas morning, they go to the station to meet the girls. Will they be on the train? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Stylized nastiness
15 April 2012 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

What makes Night Train Murders so interesting is that it is highly exploitative material presented in a highly stylised manner. Its story has a couple of girls boarding a night train and then being subsequently brutalised and sexually assaulted by psychopaths. There's no getting away from it, its pure grind-house sleaze. But unlike others of its ilk it has a polish and production value that sets it apart somewhat. It's helmed by director Aldo Lado who had previously directed a couple of excellent gialli, Short Night of the Glass Dolls and Who Saw Her Die. Like those two this is another well directed affair. Lado paces things well and creates a genuinely unnerving atmosphere. The middle section of the movie is where the rough stuff happens and it is highly stylised. Coloured lighting is used to make the interior of the train look a little more interesting but also to create a definitely unsettling atmosphere. In addition, the music by Ennio Morricone adds a lot to the intensity with a main theme that sounds not unlike a train. On a similar note the film also bizarrely includes a ditty by Greek crooner Demis Roussos which seems wildly inappropriate for a video nasty!

There are some good acting performances too but special mention has to go to Macha Meril as the mysterious female sociopath who provokes the two thugs into the acts of depravity. Meril is an extremely striking looking woman who also made a highly memorable turn in Dario Argento's Deep Red, in this film she has more of a starring role and she is quite exceptional. The idea of the enigmatic and sadistic woman behind the attacks is a good one and gives the movie a more original feel. However, despite the stylish presentation Night Train Murders is still pretty much full of the more typical grimy sleaze you would expect. The middle section is quite brutal and the final revenge fairly violent. Ultimately, this is a nasty movie with cinematic flair.
