Countdown to Halloween 2013 - Movie #46
Horror Express (1972) is an excellent film that pits Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing against a bizarre creature on a train hurtling through the Siberian night. The two stars almost have a buddy comedy dynamic in this one which is quite fun, though the script stops short of going for big jokes. The atmosphere and period costumes are perfect, the special effects are terrifically creepy, and there’s a haunting score that weaves its way in and out of the film’s world. In addition, the movie boasts an inventive script and a wacky performance (is there any other kind?) from Telly Savalas as a Cossack official.
I’ve got no complaints about Horror Express. It’s just spooky, bloody good fun, and probably my favorite film with either Cushing or Lee besides Star Wars and The Wicker Man. Severin’s recent blu-ray release is miles better than the $1 DVD I found in the Shop ‘N Save cosmetics aisle years back. It features an hour long audio interview with Cushing which I hope to listen to soon.
I love these guys. Specially Canberra.
You know? This game has taught me a lot about human-human relationships. Real life applications. Ace!
Going through some old pictures I just found a picture of Bill and me.
