"D-Railed" is an impressive indie film, blending elements of mystery and monster in a unique spin on the ghost story. The concept creates a comfortable exposition by having the story take place on Halloween. Fabrigar is able to avoid most pitfalls that period-esque movies tend to get tripped up on, as his film is set up as a murder mystery experience happening on the Holiday night. Instantly you are able to accept what few quirks in costuming and speach may be present.
The cast give convincible performances and are able to pull you into the story. The first half offers up moments of "Murder On The Orient Express" before things go full time into darker horror tropes echoing bits of "Humanoids From The Deep". It isnt until the last act that the story's true nature is revealed. The cool thing is how tight Dan Fabrigar is able to keep things as to not give anything away and keeping things thrilling.
If I had to complain about anything it would be the CGI effects. Not so much the style but more the quality. The movie really is worth more than what was done. The rest of the horror aspects are quality. The kills and practical effects looked good, and the creature design shined on screen. Overall "D-Railed" is a fun, entertaining, thriller with a couple of twists and turns that elevate the film's quality. Plus it takes place on Halloween so that is always a plus. Definitely check this one out.
