Terror Train remake: new trailer unveiled ahead of Tubi release date

On October 21st, a remake of the 1980 slasher cult classic Terror Train (watch it HERE) is going to be released through the Tubi streaming service. With the release date just four days away, a new trailer for the Terror Train remake has arrived online and can be seen in the embed above.

Directed by Philippe Gagnon (Amber Alert) from a screenplay by Ian Carpenter and Aaron Martin (Slasher), the Terror Train remake has 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.

Robyn Alomar (Utopia Falls) and Tim Rozon (Schitt’s Creek) star.

Adam Lewinson, the Chief Content Officer at Tubi, had this to say about the project:

We can’t wait for viewers to take a ride on the Terror Train, the tentpole for our annual ‘Terror on Tubi’ event in October. With an incredibly talented team of filmmakers and star-making performances, this movie continues to cement Tubi as a key destination for horror fans.”

Directed by Roger Spottiswoode and written by T. Y. Drake, the original Terror Train starred Jamie Lee Curtis, Ben Johnson, Hart Bochner, Derek MacKinnon, Vanity, and David Copperfield.

Unlike many of my fellow slasher fans, I have never found the original Terror Train to be very impressive. I’m not expecting much from the remake, but I’ll give it a chance in hopes of seeing some fun slashing and suspense sequences.
