A colleague describes Night Train to Terror "It delivers everything you could ask for… Sex, extreme gore, stop motion, full frontal nudity, dayglo spandex dancers, Cameron Mitchell, Duran Duran, monsters, Nazis - I mean come on!"

(1983, 69 min, digital video) *Double-Feature; Ticket price includes both films
