Tubi has entered a collaboration with Incendo for the remake of "Terror Train." A Tubi Original, the cult classic horror film is scheduled to premiere this October as part of the platform’s successful annual month-long Halloween-inspired genre celebration, “Terror on Tubi.” "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.”
The new "Terror Train" adaptation, produced by Incendo, fulfills a long-time made request from many horror fans. The film reboot wrapped production recently in Montreal and will be available in the U.S. exclusively on Tubi. The title joins more than 10,000 other horror and thriller titles available on the streamer. “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” (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, who gives a breakout performance and is poised to be crowned the newest scream queen, as well as Tim Rozon. The remake is written by Ian Carpenter and Aaron Martin and is directed by long-time Incendo collaborator Philippe Gagnon. TERROR TRAIN is produced by Graham Ludlow and Kaleigh Kavanagh; executive producers are Graham Ludlow, Shari Segal, and Brook Peters.
The beginning of the show follows Alana (Robyn Alomar) and a group of college seniors as they 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.
The title was mentioned 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.” As part of THE STREAM, which looks at key trends in consumer streaming behavior, the streamer recently unveiled new research and found that when it comes to choosing what to stream, 59% of U.S. adults look for titles tied to holidays, such as Halloween. Tubi also has the original “Terror Train” (1980) to stream for free in its vast library of more than 40,000 movies and TV shows.
