Terror Train 2: sequel to the remake is coming to Tubi later this year

While the 1980 slasher cult classic Terror Train (watch it HERE) takes place on New Year’s Eve, the remake that was released through the Tubi streaming service near the end of October moved the setting to Halloween – which made sense, since the slashing takes place at a costume party and such things happen more often at Halloween than on New Year’s Eve. But if you missed the New Year’s Eve element in this year’s Terror Train, you’ll be glad to hear that the upcoming sequel Terror Train 2 is set on New Year’s Eve – and it’s already set to be released this New Year’s Eve!

Terror Train 2 will be available to watch on Tubi in the U.S. as of December 31st. In Canada, it’s being released on Bell Media’s Crave.

The sequel announcement confirms that Terror Train remake director Philippe Gagnon returned to the helm for the sequel, which was written by the same writing duo as the remake, Ian Carpenter and Aaron Martin. In Terror Train 2, it has been over a year since a series of gruesome murders took the lives of multiple college seniors aboard the now infamous Terror Train. Alana is coerced to join The Magician and other remaining survivors on a New Year’s Eve redemption ride aboard the very same train, where once again the terrified passengers fight to survive.

Robyn Alomar reprises the role of Alana, with Tim Rozon back as The Magician.

In case you need to be reminded of what happened in the remake, that version of Terror Train had the following synopsis: In this contemporary reimagining, eerie excitement is in the air as Alana and a group of college seniors board a party train for a Halloween-themed bash, but their fun spirals into fear as attendees are killed off one by one by an unknown killer. Concealed by costumes and plagued with chaos, everyone is a suspect. As the party train continues full steam ahead, Alana must race against the rails to find the killer before she becomes the next victim.

While our reviewer Tyler Nichols gave the Terror Train remake a 4/10 review (you can read it HERE), I had a slightly more positive reaction and thought it was an okay way to spend 90 minutes or so. I’ll gladly watch Terror Train 2 when it reaches Tubi.
