HORROR EXPRESS 1972 (SEVERIN)

Long ignored by most horror fans for some unknown reason, this classic stars Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee and Telly Savalas and is about an alien force that has been brought aboard the Trans Siberian Express by a Prof. played by Lee.
The alien, after hiding in a fossil escapes on the train and proceeds to fry peoples brains and absorb their memories.
This is a very fine film and sadly underrated. Savalas is great as a Cossack who boards the train mid picture and meets death at the hands of the creature. Cushing is as usual, great and Helga Line is sexy as ever as a stowaway whose dies much too early for me.
Severin has released a blu ray combo pack of this film which has been available for years on many PD lables, but they have made this film look absolutely wonderful.
If you get a chance, check it out. This one comes highly recommended!!
