In 1985 Death Wish Club was condensed, augmented and generally reworked to be included as a segment in the awesome anthology, Night Train to Terror. Above is a compilation of its best moments, put together and uploaded by "NightmareSeasons". 

Looking for Death Wish Club on VHS? It's available on Amazon here, but be careful: some sellers have the 21st Genesis release or the AIR tape instead of the Regal. If you want the best current release, Vinegar Syndrome have included the entire film as a supplement on their essential Blu-Ray/DVD release of Night Train to Terror!
