Public Transit

5 Jun

After a particularly grueling morning on the C-Train, I started wondering about movies that feature public transit and how it’s depicted.

In almost every movie there are scenes that take place on or around public transit (subway, bus, trains…and more). What I noticed is that very few movies take place exclusively on transit. 1994’s Speed is the only movie that comes to mind other than The Taking of Pelham 123. The problem is both movies fall into the action genre. Anyone who rides the bus or train with regularity knows that a horror movie should be made about transit. Think about it – crowds of strangers, the filth, the weirdos, power failures, nowhere to go…

What do you think?
