Tubi released its remake of the ‘80s slasher film Terror Train. And now we have a sequel, and the first trailer has been released. Terror Train 2 will drop on December 31st, 2022… New Year’s Eve.
The New Year’s Eve release date is a homage to the first movie, which took place at Ney Year’s Eve party. “Having survived the carnage, Robyn Alomar (Alana) and Tim Rozon (The Magician) will reprise their characters in Terror Train 2, which takes place over a year after the gruesome, vengeful murders took the lives of multiple college seniors aboard the now infamous “Terror Train.”
In the sequel, “the remaining survivors are coerced to take a New Year’s Eve redemption ride on the very same train, where a new evil awaits and the terrified passengers must once again fight to survive the ride.”
Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi said in a statement: “Our remake reintroduced a new generation to Terror Train, and now Tubi’s first-ever horror sequel expands on the premise with a completely original storyline. This new ride aboard the Terror Train begins on New Year’s Eve with ‘Final Girl’ Alana and the mysterious Magician facing a new menace in this horror whodunit.”
Brook Peters, Managing Director, and Senior Vice-President, Sales & Production Operations & Executive Producer (Incendo) added: “Horror-genre franchises have proven time and time again to be some of the most successful film brands. In the sequel, we’re thrilled to offer horror fans a seamless and terrifying continuation of the story that also pays a themed tribute to the original 1980 cult classic.”
