In 1976, British film distributor David Grant (Nightmares in a Damaged Brain; Almost Human; Cathy’s Curse) submitted the film to the BBFC for an ‘X’ certificate with cuts but it was rejected outright.

Plot:

Two young women, Margaret (Irene Miracle) and Lisa (Laura D’Angelo), are set to take the overnight train from Munich in Germany to stay with Lisa’s parents in Italy for Christmas. On boarding they find the train is full and are forced to sit in the corridor.

Meanwhile, two petty criminals, Blackie (Flavio Bucci) and Curly (Gianfranco De Grassi), also board the train as it is leaving Munich to escape from a pursuing policeman…
