Horror Express is a 1972 horror movie with Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, and Telly Savalas. Lee and Cushing are scientists on a train and Lee has a mysterious fossil. It is pretty good. The monster is different and interesting. Lee and Cushing are good, as always. (Savalas is a bit over the top but it works.) The film quality is not the best at the beginning but it improves. The movie holds up pretty well, I think this is the fourth or fifth time I’ve seen it.
The Friends of Eddie Coyle is another 1970s classic. (I guess I am on a seventies kick this weekend.) Robert Mitchum stars as Eddie Coyle, a low-level Boston criminal. He is looking at a jail stretch for a crime and he is trying to buy his way out. This is based on a novel by George V Higgens.
