Horror Express stars Christopher Lee as Professor Alexander Saxton, a British anthropologist on an expedition to Manchuria. The events of the movie take place in 1906, and focus on the professor's prehistoric find. While exploring Manchuria, Saxton finds a creature frozen deep in a cave. Saxton believes the creature within the ice to be the eternally searched for "missing link". Saxton boards the Trans-Siberian Express with his frozen beast, and heads back toward Europe to study his find. Things do not go as planned, however, because the beast within the ice thaws and awakens. The creature begins to prowl the train for victims, leaving unusual corpses in its wake. It does not rend them limb from limb. It does not consume the bodies of its victims. What the beast from the ice does to its victims is far worse than simple murder.
