Tubi (www.tubi.tv), a division of FOX Entertainment, is excited to announce a collaboration with Incendo on the remake of the cult classic horror film TERROR TRAIN. A Tubi Original, TERROR TRAIN is slated to premiere this October as part of the platform’s successful annual month-long Halloween-inspired genre celebration, “Terror on Tubi.” TERROR TRAIN will join over 10,000 horror and thriller titles currently available on Tubi, further cementing the platform as the premier destination for horror fans. The film reboot wrapped production recently in Montreal and will be available in the U.S. exclusively on Tubi. The first look of TERROR TRAIN can be found HERE.
The new TERROR TRAIN adaptation, produced by Incendo, is set to thrill horror fans who have been clamoring for this remake for years. “Terror Train” (1980) starred the original “scream queen,” Jamie Lee Curtis, as well as Ben Johnson and David Copperfield, and has long been celebrated for its cult classic status in the slasher/horror genre.
The new cast is led by Canadian actress Robyn Alomar (“Utopia Falls”), who gives a breakout performance and is poised to be crowned the newest scream queen, as well as Tim Rozon (“Schitt’s Creek”). The remake is written by Ian Carpenter and Aaron Martin (“Slasher”), and is directed by long-time Incendo collaborator Philippe Gagnon (“Amber Alert”). TERROR TRAIN is produced by Graham Ludlow and Kaleigh Kavanagh; executive producers are Graham Ludlow, Shari Segal and Brook Peters.
In this contemporary reimagining, eerie excitement is in the air as Alana (Robyn Alomar) 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 an unknown 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.
“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,” said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi. “With an incredibly talented team of filmmakers and star-making performances, this movie continues to cement Tubi as a key destination for horror fans.”
“This is a new chapter for Incendo,” said Brook Peters, Executive Producer, Incendo. “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.”
TERROR TRAIN was highlighted at Tubi’s NewFronts presentation, where Tubi revealed it is doubling-down on content and debuting more than 100 new original titles over the next year. Tubi is cementing its commitment to original content, giving audiences more of what they love, including horror and thrillers throughout the year and during “Terror on Tubi.”
