DVD Talk Review: Terror Train (1053 words)
Terror Train 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.
Terror Train is frequently cited as one of the better masked slashers from the early '80s, but whatever appeal it may hold escapes me. Terror Train 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: Terror Train is a double-sided DVD, and full-frame and anamorphic widescreen presentations of the movie are offered on opposite sides of the disc.
11 March 2004 Madrid train bombings - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (4178 words)

Shortly afterwards, police identified an apartment in Legan├ęs, 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.
