God and Satan are on a train discussing the fate of three individuals. The stories of the people in question are told in a trio of very strange vignettes. One involves an insane anylum with some very interesting treatment plans. Another involves a 'death club'. The final story shows us the adventures of a server of Satan. This is a strange movie.

A double was used for actor Richard Moll in many shots of the "Harry" segment. The double wears the same clothes as Moll, and sports the same hairstyle, but the double's arms are very hairy, whereas Moll's arms are smooth. See more »

The structure and intelligence-level of this hopeless little gem is so dumb it almost becomes legendary. Here we have God and Satan themselves sitting in train, discussing whether a few bizarre characters belong in hell or in heaven. This aspect provides the film with the most bizarre wraparound story ever used in a horror anthology. You could say it's very original and creative (and in a way, it IS) but, due to the amateurish and silly style used here, it becomes unintentionally hilarious and pathetic. But you can't really claim that the creators of Night Train haven't got a sense of humor God is credited as himself' and a guy named as Lu Cifer supposedly plays Satan. Hahahahaha nice try!
The separate stories surely have potential! Which isn't that surprising because they're actually edited from full-length movies! Completely ignored 80's quickies like `Death wish Club' and `Cataclysm' that never received any recognition. Especially the first two short stories are enjoyable (and very gore) but the final episode more or less ruins the whole film. That last one is twice as long (or at least, it felt like it was) and it's utterly boring and uninspired. Try to look at this film as a perfect example of bad acting and most of all as a filthy piece of 80's trash! The make-up and shlock effects are truly nasty and gruesome (we see people getting slashed their heads off and sliced apart with a bone saw) and the creature-effects (like the beetle in `Death Wish Club) give a whole new meaning to the word `cheese-fest'. Very fun without any other values what so ever.
