Three sleazy clowns in a sleazy train
12 January 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

If you're going to see this film expecting a thriller you will be disappointed. "La ragazza del vagone letto" (Terror Express), in a literal translation means "The girl of the sleeping car", a title that should already hint what "Terror Express" really is, namely a sleazy comedy. It was somewhat inspired by "Night train murders" by Aldo Lado, a very violent and suspenseful thriller. But "Terror Express" is not a real thriller. Call it, if you want, a sexual thriller.

The story runs like this: Three sleazy thugs board a night train. They succeed in isolating the wagon in which they are from the rest of the train and submit the passengers traveling there to all sort of humiliations; especially the women, that suffer harassment, "rape" etc.. They have a weird sense of humor and play their practical jokes on everybody.

Some of the passengers are:

A couple in crisis, they are always arguing and the beautiful wife is fed up with her husband.

A family – a man, his wife and his daughter. The man secretly lusts for his daughter but never fails to give her moral, admonitory lessons.

A policeman and his handcuffed prisoner.

And the wagon's whore that is in cohorts with the train conductor!

There are still other passengers, but I think that that's enough to give you a taste for pleasures to come.

The three guys that took over the wagon could be defined more as comedians than thugs. Their "violence" consists in jokes, threats (sometimes switchblades are shown) and their real aim seems to be to give as much pleasure as possible to the women that "fall into their clutches", but they can also be nasty clowns.

"Terror Express" is very sleazy and funny - a real sleaze merry-go-round. Now if you take the film at face value you won't like it. Take it as a sexy joke and that's your ticket. Silvia Dionisio, Zora Kerova and Fiammetta Flamini rock! Welcome aboard the sleaze train!
