TerrorTrain opens with a fraternity prank, and since this happens in a slasher flick before the opening credits, clearly something is going to go terribly, terribly wrong.
TerrorTrain is frequently cited as one of the better masked slashers from the early '80s, but whatever appeal it may hold escapes me. TerrorTrain is too boring and unsuspenseful to check it off in the "so bad, it's good" column, and the lack of scares or suspense leaves little to recommend.
Video: TerrorTrain is a double-sided DVD, and full-frame and anamorphic widescreen presentations of the movie are offered on opposite sides of the disc.
The 11 March 2004 Madrid train bombings (also known as 11/3, 3/11, M-11 and 11-M) were a series of coordinated terrorist bombings against the commuter train system of Madrid, Spain on the morning of 11 March 2004, which killed 191 people and wounded 1,460.
Shortly afterwards, police identified an apartment in Leganés, south of Madrid, as being the base of operations for the individuals suspected of being the material authors of the Madrid and AVE attacks.
Despite Spanish Government's claims that the explosive used was titadine, a type of compressed dynamite used by ETA in recent years, forensic analysis of one of the remaining unexploded devices found at El Pozo revealed the explosive used there to be Goma-2, manufactured in Spain and not used by ETA since the 1980s.
