If anyone is interested “Terror Train” is on Fox Movie Channel today (right now actually). I mention it only because it’s being shown in it’s proper ratio, which I don’t believe the LD’s or tapes provide. It’s on again the 31st.

Wow, I've never seen the film in widescreen. I wish I had that channel, I'd love to see Alcott's beautiful cinematography in its true glory!

Yeah, that’s what got me so interested in the film. What he shot for Kubrick, and even the “The Beastmaster”, look fantastic. I caught “Terror Train” as it was nearing it’s conclusion and, not seeing it before hand, figured I could wait till the end of the month to see it in it’s entirety. It should at the very least be the best looking slasher available, besides “Halloween” of course.

I watched the whole thing on FMC last night,it looked beautiful. I was psyched to see it widescreen! To my knowlege it has never been presented this way before so I hope this means a dvd is soon on it's way. I remember seeing Revenge Of The Nerds lbx for the first time on FMC and about 2 or 3 months later it was released on dvd.

Hope this one replays soon. I've heard so much about this flick that I cant wait to finally see it. And in its OAR would be that much sweeter.

I think they showed TERROR TRAIN on German television in a 2.35:1 aspect ratio. Not 100% sure cuz it was a long time ago.

It was around 1.77 - 1.85:1 on FMC.
