DVD/Blu-Ray News #205: Horror Express (1972).

Directed by Eugenio Martin
Starring Telly Savalas, Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing

There’s something special about a movie with both Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in it. Even the crummy ones. Horror Express (1972), which is coming to Blu-Ray from Arrow in February, is far from crummy.

Arrow’s promising a train load of extras, but the real sweet spot will be a new restoration. Horror Express deserves it. Keep an eye out for it. (Sorry.)
