The Midnight Meat Train (2008)

I don't even know where to begin with this movie... more tension and gore than I've seen in quite some time! This movie came from the mind of my FAVORITE director, Clive Barker! What a great movie. The movie starts of with a gory train scene and never really lets up. The premise of the movie seems to be about a serial killer who does his work on a subway train after midnight. Vinnie Jones plays the killer and is awesome in this movie. His presence is powerful and very creepy. We are shown a photographer who is struggling to make ends meet while his girlfriend works as a waitress in a diner. You feel for the two of them and find yourself pulling for them to succeed. The photographer ends up following the killer and captures his killing on film. There is a great twist at the end that puts everything in perspective. I highly recommend watching this movie for all horror/gore fans. It isn't killing for the sake of killing... there is a purpose. Great movie! Check out the trailer below and rent this movie!

The Midnight Meat Train is a 2008 horror film based on Clive Barker's 1984 short story of the same name, which can be found in Volume One of Barker's collection Books of Blood. The film follows a photographer who attempts to track down a serial killer dubbed the "Subway Butcher" and discovers more than he bargained for under the city streets.

Books of Blood are a series of horror fiction collections written by the British author Clive Barker.

Bradley Cooper (Wedding Crashers) stars as Leon Kauffman, an ambitious New York photographer whose reckless search for a serial killer (Vinnie Jones) known as "the Subway Butcher" leads him down a dark and dangerous path. Based on a short story by horror giant Clive Barker, this spine-tingling thriller from director Ryuhei Kitamura also stars Leslie Bibb, Brooke Shields and Tony Curran.
