'Horror Express' Blu-ray Delayed

Posted Thu Nov 3, 2011 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The 'Panic in the Trans-Siberian Train' skipped September and will be speeding to Blu-ray at the end of the month.

As previously reported, MPI is working on the 1972 horror film 'Horror Express' starring Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, and Telly Savalas for Blu-ray on September 27, but now it looks to be coming November 29.

An English anthropologist has discovered a frozen monster in the frozen wastes of Manchuria which he believes may be the Missing Link. He brings the creature back to Europe aboard the Trans-Siberian Express, but during the trip the monster thaws out and starts to butcher the passengers one by one.

Specs haven't been revealed yet, but the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will include: Introduction by Fangoria editor Chris Alexander; Murder On The Trans-Siberian Express interview with director Eugenio Martín; Notes From The Blacklist feature with producer Bernard Gordon discussing the McCarthy Era; 1973 audio interview with Peter Cushing; Telly And Me interview with composer John Cacavas; and Theatrical trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
