Terror on a Train

Choo-choo-choose something else.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Not to be confused with the ’80s slasher Terror Train — but, oh, how I wish it were! — 1952's Terror on a Train finds Glenn Ford (Superman: The Movie's Pa Kent) as Peter Lyncort, a bomb diffuser whose home life with his spouse (French actress Anne Vernon) is currently as explosive as his work life.

Drinking Games / From the Head

No budget? No problem!


Drama

Rod Lott

For no-budget cinema, the single location is a godsend. Set a movie entirely or mostly in one spot — one room, even — and you jussssst might be able to afford to put your thinly veiled autobiographical story onto film (OK, technically video). Such is the case for two new indie offerings: Drinking Games and From the Head.

Day of the Dead

Eat it up.


Horror

Patrick Crain
With the exception of George Lucas’s Star Wars movies, few franchises that laid their foundation on the big screen were as culturally significant as George A. Romero’s Dead films. Everything about our conception of zombies derive from Romero’s creations. Before Night of the Living Dead — Romero’s stark, groundbreaking drive-in shocker from 1968 — zombies were barely in the public’s collective wheelhouse. Usually featured as trance-like beings who were used as slave labor, zombies were more tools of an insidious puppet master than a force unto themselves. Heck, before Night of the Living Dead, the term “undead” was mostly used to describe vampires.
