A train derailment turns into a slaughter fest in the chilling trailer for Dale Fabrigar’s creature feature
I love a creature feature. Whether it features killer sharks, alligators, a cyclops or a Kraken, I’m down for whatever mayhem might ensue once the lights go down! If not for this love of creature features, I would not have discovered the gem that was The Relic, or the superb Stephen Sommers monster fest that was Deep Rising, a phenomenal movie which boasted an equally phenomenal score from the great Jerry Goldsmith.
The recent trailer for Sam Raimi’s Crawl did more than enough to whet my monster appetite and build my anticipation for what looks to be an exciting thrill ride of man-eating alligator mayhem. But a new contender has stepped into the fore to contest the title of the monster movie of the summer.
Boasting the acting talents of Aliens star Lance Henriksen, D-Railed is a monster flick on steroids. Directed by Dale Fabrigar, the movie is set aboard a murder mystery tourist train which departs into the darkness on Halloween night. However, all is not what it seems, and soon a botched robbery finds the train vaulting from the tracks and landing in murky water. The surviving passengers quickly find themselves trapped within the sinking wreckage, but that pales in comparison to the terror lurking in the depth beyond.
Check it out:
As if you needed it, here’s the synopsis:
“A woman boards a train that derails into a lake in the middle of the night. She, along with other surviving passengers find themselves trapped within the sinking wreckage. They discover what lies beneath the surface is far more terrifying as they fight to stay alive against a deadly predator determined to kill them one by one.”
Okay, I’m hooked. D-Railed appears to be a genuine popcorn movie. One that will have me gripping the edge of my seat after the opening twenty minutes. The awesome trailer for Crawl was a tense affair. In comparison, the trailer for D-Railed is butt puckeringly terrifying and I, for one cannot wait to get my first look.
Bring it on.
D-Railed is getting a DVD and Digital release from Uncork’d Entertainment in the United States on August 6th. Hopefully, a UK release won’t be too far behind.
The Future of the Force. The future of pop culture writing.
