In news that caught much of the horror community off-guard, Tubi has announced a modern-day remake of slasher classic Terror Train.
A Tubi Original, Terror Train is set to premiere this October as part of the platform’s successful annual month-long Halloween-inspired genre celebration, “Terror on Tubi.”
In this contemporary remake, eerie excitement is in the air as Alana and a group of college seniors board a party train for a Halloween-themed bash, but their fun spirals into fear as attendees are killed off one by one by a masked killer.
Concealed by costumes and plagued with chaos, everyone is a suspect. As the party train continues full steam ahead, Alana must race against the rails to find the killer before she becomes the next victim.
The original Terror Train was released in 1980, and starred iconic Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis plus a cameo from magician David Copperfield.
Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi, commented,
“We can’t wait for viewers to take a ride on the Terror Train, the tentpole for our annual ‘Terror on Tubi’ event in October.
“With an incredibly talented team of filmmakers and star-making performances, this movie continues to cement Tubi as a key destination for horror fans.”
Brook Peters, Executive Producer, Incendo added,
“Our strategy to diversify and grow our production slate is coming to fruition and we couldn’t be more pleased to find such an incredible partner in Tubi for this project. Tubi has had enormous success with horror-genre content, and we can’t wait for them to bring our take on Terror Train to their audience in the U.S.”
