I can’t imagine there are many people out there who don’t like the Keanu Reeves and Dennis Hopper starring Speed, so when I read about a new horror taking its initial ideas from that film, I got very excited. Two official images have also been released ahead of the film making its debut at AFM which runs from 2nd November to the 9th. Pathe International will be releasing the film which is directed by Omid Nooshin and stars Dougray Scott, Lindsay Duncan, Davis Schofield and Kara Tointon.
The first image is above and the second you will find after this synopsis, courtesy of Dread Central:
Lewis Shaler (Dougray Scott) is an overworked doctor and devoted single dad heading home with his young son on the last train from London. When he strikes up a relationship with a beautiful and flirtatious stranger, Lewis believes life is finally looking up. But events then take a dark turn when Lewis discovers the guard has mysteriously vanished and the brakes have been sabotaged. Unknown to the handful of remaining passengers, a vengeful sociopath has taken control of the train and is hellbent on crashing it, taking his passengers with him to the grave.
As the speeding locomotive ploughs through stations and level crossings, the body count rises and panic turns to terror. Lewis realizes that the police are powerless to stop the diesel-powered ‘slammer’ train, and the desperate passengers must find their own way out of this nightmare. Lewis takes the lead in a series of increasingly perilous missions to stop the train before the driver can realize his dark plan…
