Sleeping car is indeed a snooze
27 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jason (David Naughton of American Werewolf in London) buys a train car converted into an apartment not knowing that ten years previously it was involved in a bizarre accident. While going back to school he soon starts a relationship with the much younger Kim (Judie Aronson of Friday the 13th: the Final Chapter and Weird Science). However not all is wine and roses as 'the Mister' an undead ghoul is soon after him.

Through technically a '90's film this feels like an 80's movie through and through. Now that is usually a plus, but I found the film to be too slow, plodding, derivative, and disjointed to be enjoyable despite one or two fairly inventive kills. Kevin McCarthy earns this one an extra star as he's always a joy to watch, but Taxi's Jeff Conaway is worthless in this movie.

Eye Candy: Sandra Margot and Judie Aronson get topless
