Midnight Meat Train New Poster, Review

Posted by: PuppetMaster

Midnight Meat Train is one movie horror fans have been waiting for, for awhile. Lionsgate seriously enraged horror fans when they decided in Canada it would go straight to the DVD bin and in the USA it would get a very limited release to fulfill their agreement with LakeShore. Now today we have a new poster from PosterGeek which you can checkout below and a first review has gone online. Its not bad but its certainly not good.  Serena Whitney writes;

Midnight Meat Train will make people fear the subways as much as Jaws made people fear the water. Visionary director Ryuhei Kitamura (Versus, Alive)  shines in his American directorial debut as he stuns viewers with his no holds barred terror-filled horror film bound to be talked about for many years to come.  Kitamura delivers gory visceral goods with this shocking horror movie and each of them is a hard punch to the cerebral.  Gore hounds will be pleased Kitamura kept the spirit of the death scenes from the short story alive, was actually able to go beyond expectations in terms of the uniqueness of the kills. Most of them are so elaborate and so visually stunning, that you will find it hard to turn away, even though you want to. The audiences are witness to decapitations, slit throats, and bashed in faces guaranteed to make you gasp in fright.

Sounds pretty promising but at the end she doesnt give it a glowing rating. There is much more to this review. Go give it a read; Midnight Meat Train Review

Directed by Ryuhei Kitamura (formerly attached to direct has been Patrick Tatopoulos) the grisly suspense/thriller feature is based on Clive Barker's best selling short story. "'Midnight Meat Train' is one of my most treasured stories. Fans have been clamoring for years to see this film made and now with Lakeshore's and Lionsgate's help, we will deliver this grisly story to the screen," said Barker. Jeff Buhler wrote the screenplay for the movie.

Next stop, death. When his latest body of work - provocative, nighttime studies of the city and its inhabitants - earns struggling photographer Leon Kaufman (Bradley Cooper) interest from a prominent art gallerist (Brooke Shields), she propels him to get grittier and show the darker side of humanity for his upcoming debut at her downtown art space.

Believing he’s finally on track for success, Leon’s obsessive pursuit of dark subject matter leads him into the path of a serial killer, Mahogany (Vinnie Jones), the subway murderer who stalks late-night commuters - ultimately butchering them in the most gruesome ways imaginable. With his concerned girlfriend Maya (Leslie Bibb) fearing for his life, Leon’s relentless fascination with Mahogany lures him further and further into the bowels of the subways and ultimately into an abyss of pure evil - inadvertently pulling Maya right along with him.
