“He’s gonna kill everybody! We’ve gotta tell them!”

A bunch of fraternity kids celebrate new years eve on a party train. What they don’t know is that a psychopatic killer is on the same train. Can they manage to find the killer, before he finds them?

A pretty standard college/slasher flick from the early 80’s. Stereotypes and a possible murderer around every corner. Halfways you’re sure who the killer is among all the dressed up party people. It’s simple and predictable, and get saved by the chase/battle scene at the end. There are far more entertaining, violent and sleazy train movies out there!
