This long-forgotten Canadian slasher film from 1980 stars a post-HALLOWEEN Jamie Lee Curtis in another of her scream queen roles.
A 24-year-old David Copperfield plays a magician (no surprise!) who actually has a pivotal role in the plot of the movie.
This was before his famous TV specials in which he vanished a Lear jet and made the Statue of Liberty disappear.
The plot of the movie involves a group of pre-med students who hold a celebratory costume party aboard a moving train.
One by one, students get killed off by a maniac who then steals the victim's costume and impersonates them to target the next victim.
The plot idea is actually pretty good.
The actual execution and acting- well, maybe not so much.
But of course, David Copperfield gets to show off his magical skills several times during the film.
That alone makes it worth watching!

David Copperfield was the first magic show I attended when I was in California and was so mesmerized by his acting, performance and his magic! I knew then it was time to pull out my magic that I had since a child and began searching for more, improved magic and even today I still research, practice, practice and practice my illusions to be confident and for perfection! Magic is awesome and being able to perform for folks is a magical experience and full of joy as I see others mesmerized as I was years ago! Thank you for sharing Peter!
