Last Train to Freo is a 2006 Australian film based on Reg Cribb's 2001 play The Return, and directed by Jeremy Sims.


Two thugs from the Perth suburb of Midland catch the last train to Fremantle. When a young woman, unaware that the train guards are on strike, boards the train several stops later, the thugs are interested by her. After two others – an older woman and a silent man – board the train, it becomes apparent that not everybody on the train is who they appear to be.
