Halloween programming has been coming HOT as we inch closer to the holiday we celebrate all year round here, and out today is the FREE streaming service Tubi’s own remake of the 1981 horror classic, TERROR TRAIN.
The new TERROR TRAIN adaptation, produced by Incendo, is set to thrill horror fans who have been clamoring for this remake for years. “Terror Train” (1980) starred the original “scream queen,” Jamie Lee Curtis, as well as Ben Johnson and David Copperfield, and has long been celebrated for its cult classic status in the slasher/horror genre.
The new cast is led by Canadian actress Robyn Alomar (“Utopia Falls”), who gives a breakout performance and is poised to be crowned the newest scream queen, as well as Tim Rozon (“Schitt’s Creek”). The remake is written by Ian Carpenter and Aaron Martin (“Slasher”) and is directed by long-time Incendo collaborator Philippe Gagnon (“Amber Alert”). TERROR TRAIN is produced by Graham Ludlow and Kaleigh Kavanagh; executive producers are Graham Ludlow, Shari Segal, and Brook Peters.
In this contemporary reimagining, eerie excitement is in the air as Alana (Robyn Alomar) and a group of college seniors boards 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.
TERROR TRAIN was highlighted at Tubi’s NewFronts presentation, where Tubi revealed it is doubling down on content and debuting more than 100 new original titles over the next year. Tubi is cementing its commitment to original content, giving audiences more of what they love, including horror and thrillers throughout the year and during “Terror on Tubi.”
