Three college seniors who are thinking about nothing but graduation and going out with a bang from college, harshly discover that a culmination of four years of hard work can lead to a permanent road to perdition after they decide to experiment with the knockout "date rape" drug on a vulnerable, impressionable, and very attractive freshman girl. Events quickly become a "Train Ride" for all parties involved, and end up spiraling out of control into a roller-coaster of unpredictable, virulent events that must be seen to be believed. Written by
Train Ride is one the best independent films I've seen since Spike Lee first got started. Remember when you first went to college and how grown-up you thought you were? Then being introduced to that one person that made you realize that you still have a lot to learn. Date rape is a very serious matter on every college campus that should not be taken lightly. Rel Dowdel does an excellent job showing you if you don't take responsibility for your actions someone else will. This is definitely a movie everyone can relate to whether you're in school, graduated or know someone about to take that challenge.
