366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 248

The Date: June 4

The Movie: Horror Express (1972)

What Is It?: Christopher Lee is a scientist transporting a monkey man that makes people bleed out of their eyeballs aboard the Trans-Siberian Express. The third act introduction of some totally unexpected gonzo humor by way of Telly Savalas’s Cossack captain elevates Horror Express from schlock masquerading as art to the other way around.

Why Today?: On this day in 1876, the Transcontinental Express sets a record by arriving in San Fran from NYC in just 83 hours and 39 minutes.
