Movie of the Week: Horror Express (1972)

Looking like a film from Hammer studios (mostly because of the two leads, Chris Lee and Pete Cushing), but actually a small Spanish / UK independent co-production. And the story isn't so much the typical 70's Hammer monster fare as it is like something out of a Larry Cohen movie: prehistoric aliens, a thawed yeti on the loose, zombies, a power-mad bald cossack, a religious fanatic, zombies...  it is excellent. Nice original musical score as well.
