A college fraternity prank goes wrong and a student ends up in the mental asylum. Three years later, it's graduation time, and the members of the fraternity decide to have a costume party aboard a train trip to celebrate their graduation. Unknowingly to them, a killer has slipped aboard, killing them off one by one, disguised in the costumes of the victims. Written by
Man, I had high expectations with this one because of the premise and having Jamie Lee Curtis is the lead female role. The premise - a killer at a masquerade party aboard a train, a psycho who changes costumes, always using the one of his last victim and continues to kill aboard the train until stopped - sounds really interesting.
However, being that it was a party for a college fraternity and that it was a Hollywood film, they made all the kids ridiculously obnoxious and profane. Hey, you almost had to root for the killer against these arrogant punks.
Once again, this turns out to be one of those films in which the "coming attractions" made it look a lot better than it actually was, and it turned out to be just another sleazy film from the 1970s.
