Welcome to Flyby Five, where we abandon all sense of seriousness and do silly lists about whatever pops into our heads. This segment will be posted every Wednesday we feel like posting it. This is not a serious list, nor is it a “Top 5” list. And there is every possible chance that some of these lists or the language in these lists may not be PG-13 friendly. You have been warned. -L&G
5 Horror Movies Set on Trains
Train to Busan (2016)
Train to Busan is about zombie virus outbreak where people are – surprise – trapped on a train.
This is probably the only movie on this list that is actually any good.
IMDB: 7.5/10 | Rotten Tomatoes: 96%
The Midnight Meat Train (2008)
The Midnight Meat Train proves that you shouldn’t seek too hard, for you might not like what you find. Especially if you’re a photographer with a need for the darkest art.
IMDB: 6.1 | Rotten Tomatoes: 72%
Snakes on a Train (2006)
Well, after the mother-f’king snakes on the mother-f’king plane killed everyone, they had to travel by train.
IMDB: 2.3 | Rotten Tomatoes: (audience score) 18%
Personally, I think it gets points just for the ballsiness of the cover. I insisted to my partner that we needed to see this. He said he had no desire to see it. I retorted that it had a 2.3 rating on IMDB. His eyes gleamed and he said “We’ll pencil it in.”
Terror Train (1980)
Well, it’s a bunch of college girls having a Halloween party on a moving train. What do you think is going to happen? Spin the bottle? No. Blood! Blood! BLOOD!
IMDB: 5.9 | Rotten Tomatoes: 36%
Horror Express (1972)
You shouldn’t mess with prehistoric creatures. Hasn’t every movie since…ever… proved that? But nooo, someone’s still going to try to take someone across the country. In a train.
IMDB: 6.5 | Rotten Tomatoes: 57%
There are, of course, other horror movies set on trains, but these ones were the ones that caught our attention. However, you’re absolutely offended that we left off a vital movie from this list of horror movies set on trains, feel free to list in the comments below.
