Horror Express



(1972) ***1/2

OK, how to summarize, how to summarize... Christopher Lee is Professor Saxton who has discovered a key
evolutionary link frozen in time in Manchuria. He locks it in a cage, puts it in a crate to transport him back to England to study. Grand Moff Tarkin plays Dr. Wells who just HAS to know what is in the box so he hires someone to look into it for him. The monster escapes and goes on a killing spree. As it turns out, the monster is some form of parasitic alien that creates zombies. A fantastic concept that's as ridiculous as the fake mustache that Christopher Lee adorns. They just don't make movies like this anymore... Funniest line- Man: What if one of you is the monster? Dr. Wells: (outraged) Monster?! We're British!
