D-Railed (2019)

All aboard!  The Murder Mystery Train is ready to depart the station! Treacherous curves lie ahead, but so does a most unexpected and dastardly switch at the crossings.

Starring sci-fi superstar Lance Henriksen (Aliens, The Terminator, Millennium), D-Railed arrives on DVD and digital just in time to cool us off from the summer heat that has constantly soaking our shirts this August.  And it is all to hitting a curve at 30 mph.  Damn, the 1920s were definitely a wild time and, according to the nasty narrative of this horror gem, that included train rides.

"All aboard!  The Murder Mystery Train is ready to depart the station! Treacherous curves lie ahead, but so does a most unexpected and dastardly switch at the crossings."


Directed by Dale Fabrigar (Area 407) and co-written with Everette Wallin, D-Railed is fun horror film about what happens when a steam train crashes and derails right into a lake during the witching hour.  This is a movie where even the darkness surrounding the passenger train has secrets that it keeps from its audience.  This ride, which started out as a murder mystery live action game, turns right deadly rather quickly – if your eyes are to be believed.  Yet, as the train is slowly sinking into the murky depths, there is something very deadly springing up from the depths. 

And this creature wants all the human flesh and bone for itself.  There will be no safe way out of these deadly waters.

Co-starring Frank Lammers, Shae Smolik, Tonya Kay, Everette Wallin and Carter Scott, what sets D-Railed apart from other B-marked horror titles is its brains.  This is a smart script with a tightness to its crisp storytelling that keeps you from daring to guess what happens next.  You absolutely buy into its set-up and are content to sit back, trust in its rollout, and be completely surprised by its twist ending.  Part Twilight Zone and part Tales from the Crypt, this is a monster movie that defies expectations.

Bloody to the end, this is ripe, ripe, splatter ready material and D-Railed delivers the gore and plenty more thanks to a great production, smart acting from everyone involved, a crackling story that might not be wholly original, but it is definitely entertaining thanks to the engaging engine that keeps this train on its track. D-Railed (2019)

Released from Uncork’d Entertainment and produced by Suzanne DeLaurentiis Productions (10th and Wolf), D-Railed might be documenting an unexpected monster attack, but it keeps its cards held tightly to its chest as to what it is really up to and keeps us in suspense as a private party gets upturned and then gutted thanks to some deep sea surprises.

D-Railed arrives on DVD and digital August 6 from Uncork’d Entertainment.  If you like your horror stories full of fresh off the bone spills and thrills, then be sure to catch this train at its closest stop to your house.

Full scream ahead.
