    I also love them both, but Terror Train would slightly edge out Prom Night.

    My alternate artwork for the TT Laserdisc-to-DVD :evil: :

    Okay, so the official DVD (which I of course own) has a much sweeter transfer, but not the greatest looking artwork.

    Jamie Lee should have done a third movie called PROM TRAIN.

    Easily Terror Train. Prom Night was kind of dumb...of course maybe I should give it another try.

    Like both as a kid, but as an adult, I seem to enjoy Terror Train more than Prom Night.

    Neither really warrants more than one seeing, but at least "Prom Night" does not have David Thief-Kotkin in it.

    NO FAIR! Well I chose PROM NIGHT. The disco music wins me over each time.

    Went with terror Train, although to be honest I don't really like either of these very much...and I am a huge slasher fan. Give me Madman by a country mile any day!!

    both are fun. I think "Terror Train" is underrated.

    Have both on DVD but going with Prom Night. The calls are creepy! I can better understand the killer's motives.

    As much as I love both films, Terror Train is the better film. (As I've said before, I personally believe this was the best slasher to come out of the '80s. Well, ONE of the best, anyway.)
