Pulp Fiction Thursday: Horror Express

I saw Horror Express for the first time on TCM on Halloween. It’s one of those movies that’s simultaneously good and bad and campy and scary. In short, it’s everything you’d want from a flick starring Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee about terror on a train. It features a hammy and OTT performance by Telly Savalas as a Cossack commander. I’m surprised that Cousin Telly didn’t eat the train, tracks and fake Siberian scenery. It’s campy, spooky fun complete with a frozen dead guy/demon. Here’s the poster:

Here’s the whole damn picture when you have some time for cossacks, conductors, and a Rasputin-like monk:
