In the 2022 modern retelling, the official description is as follows: “Alana (Robyn Alomar) 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.”
The cast is steered by Canadian actress Robyn Alomar (“Utopia Falls”), and Tim Rozon (“Schitt’s Creek”). The movie is written by Ian Carpenter along with Aaron Martin (“Slasher”) and is directed by Philippe Gagnon (“Amber Alert”).
