"Murder on the Costume Express"

Films: Terror Train (1980)

Alias: Ed, Jackson

Type: Natural

Location: Haunted Home

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Once again, a prank gone wrong results in a mad teen looking for vengeance. The only difference this time is that the victims are boxed up in a train. It can only go downhill from there.

History: One day, poor college pledge Kenny Hampson was tricked into going into a dark room under the promise of New Years sex. He instead got jumped by a dead body, scarring him for life. Now that some time has passed, he's prepared to exact vengeance by hijacking a train holding a costume party. By murdering some of the teens, he can take their costumes and assume their identity.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Eventually, Kenny is revealed to the survivors after the blame game is said and done. Before he can kill more, the conductor bashes his head in with a shovel, and tosses him overboard into the frozen river, which carries his dead body to parts unknown.

Powers/Abilities: None

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-The costumes may not be too intimidating, but Kenny is a master of disguise no less, and played just about everyone for fools as he killed them one by one. For the love of God, please stop pulling death-related pranks, kids! Otherwise, you get guys like him!

Trivia: -The producer of this film quite literally pitched this film as "like Halloween on a train" due to the nightmares the film induced in him. We don't see much of that in the final product, but whatever gets you greenlit, we suppose.

-Because Canada is just like that, one night during production got so cold that one of the cameras froze over.

We're with a serial killer. Anything goes.

Not that kind of monster, guys!

Still better than your final mask.

Madness begets all the havoc here.

We all have masks, Kenny. But which one is real? The one that hides your face...or the one that is your face?
