Last Stop on the Night Train -- YOU CAN TELL YOURSELF IT'S ONLY A MOVIE – BUT IT WON'T HELP!

Please mind the half-dead girls between the platform edge and the train as you board a cinematic ride into terror that was refused a certificate in 1976 and has since never been dared an official release in the UK…
Two street punks, one cold-as-ice sex-crazed vicious bitch and two young virgins converge on a train ride to hell that will see the most unspeakable horrors committed in the name of kinky kicks. Imagine the worst and you're unlikely to come close to what actually unfolds on screen, but comfort yourself with the thought that once Daddy discovers what's been done to his daughters revenge will be merciless.

Conceived as a response to The Last House on the Left this chillingly well-made claustrophobic thriller from director Aldo Lado (and scored by Ennio Morricone) sears the brains of those who dare watch it!

Night Train Murders (cert. 18) is released uncut (for the first time in the UK) on DVD by Shameless Screen Entertainment. The film will be presented remastered in 1.85:1 with English 2.0 sound. Also included on the disc is a Shameless original trailer gallery.

Subtlle, powerful horror, 15 March 2005
Author: fertilecelluloid from Mountains of Madness

Taut thriller from director Aldo Lado.

Frequent criticism that "nothing happens" in the film's first forty-five minutes is rubbish. The film takes its time to establish what finally becomes a very nasty situation for two teenage girls (Marina Bertie and Irene Miracle). The suspense builds slowly as the villains, impeccably played by Flavio Bucci and Gianfranco De Grassi, are introduced and the predicament of the women is unfurled.

The production values are top notch and the spare Ennio Morricone score is utlized for maximum effect. A haunting but melodic Demmis Roussos song, "A Flower Is All You Need", is a perfect, ironic bookend to the film's grim developments.

Lado directs with a sure, intuitive, practised hand. He conjures a very uncomfortable atmosphere and tightens the tension with sharp cutting, ultra-moody interior lighting and excellent direction of the actors.

Macha Meril plays a female passenger who allows herself to be corrupted by the villains. Lado uses her to explore the nature of evil and the fascination of horror. Meril's performance is exemplary for she renders her highly disturbing character with great authenticity.

The centrepiece of the film is a sequence featuring the rape and killing of one of the girls. Although the scene is reasonably brutal, much of the violence is suggested. A shot of one of the women being thrown off the train into a river is strangely beautiful.

Comparisons with LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT's plot structure are to be expected. Technically, the film is much more accomplished than LAST HOUSE, but LAST HOUSE, as a work of pure terror, is more confronting on a pure gut level.

NIGHT TRAIN MURDERS is a film of subtle power and horror, and it leaves one feeling uneasy (which can only be a good thing).
