Trivia

Despite the title, this film has nothing to do with Beyond the Door (1974) (aka Beyond The Door) or Shock (1977) (aka Beyond The Door II). Distributors titled this Beyond the Door III to capitalize on the success of the previous films. See more »

Alternate Versions

The US version of this film (released on tape and laser disc by RCA/Columbia Pictures Home Video) was severely cut for an R-rating and is missing virtually all of the gore from the death scenes. The Japanese release from Columbia Video in English with Japanese subtitles (and wide screen) features all the the uncut killings but does not offer English subtitles for the extensive Serbo-Croat dialog (though it does offer Japanese subtitles for this dialog). The Australian Columbia release titled DEATH TRAIN is also uncut, full screen (the film was shot open-matte so nothing is missing in the full screen transfer) and offers English subtitles for the Serbo-Croat dialog (as does the cut US version).

All aboard the Amok Train
26 July 2010 | by Cujo108See all my reviews

Third entry in the series of films that have nothing to do with each other. The original title for this one is Amok Train, though it's better known as Beyond the Door III. It involves a group of college students heading to Yugoslavia. Once there, it is revealed that the virgin of the group, Beverly, is intended to be the bride of the devil.

This is a really bad movie with some truly lousy gore scenes. The deaths themselves are creative enough, but the effects are terrible, several of them using blatantly obvious dummy heads. The characters are also an unlikable bunch who treat Beverly poorly for no good reason. They also never seem to much care when something otherworldly happens. One guy kisses his possessed girlfriend and gets a mouth full of maggots in the process. The girl then proceeds to rip her face off right in front of him, but the guy never mentions it and acts as if it didn't happen. We also get some hilarious scenes of the titular train going off the rails, all done with very bad miniature work.

This one's for those who like to laugh at bad movies. Anyone else should avoid. Funnily enough, it's still the most watchable film in this series of unrelated Euro flicks.
