The photographer Leon lives with his girlfriend and waitress Maya waiting for a chance to get in the photo business. When Maya contacts their friend Jurgis, he schedules a meeting for Leon with the successful owner of arts gallery Susan Hoff; she analyzes Leon's work and asks him to improve the quality of his photos. During the night, the upset Leon decides to wander on the streets taking pictures with his camera, and he follows three punks down to the subway station; when the gang attacks a young woman, Leon defends her and the guys move on. On the next morning, Leon discovers that the woman is missing. He goes to the police station, but Detective Lynn Hadley does not give much attention to him and discredits his statement. Leon becomes obsessed to find what happened with the stranger and he watches the subway station. When he sees the elegant butcher Mahogany in the train, Leon believes he might be a murderer and stalks him everywhere, in the beginning of his journey to the darkness. Written by

On its official North American release to cinemas, the film opened in 102 discount theatres, also called "dollar theatres" for their very low admission prices, rather than at regular first-run cinemas with normal ticket prices, which was a factor in its poor opening weekend box-office earnings.

What can be said about a title like "Midnight Meat Train" that can't be explained by the said name? Add Clive Barker's writing, and you have a fun ride through the twisted mind of a horror master...
Solid performances by Bradley Cooper and Vinnie Jones, but the true allure of this gore-fest belongs solely to director Ryuhei Kitamura. Kitamura delivers the brutality in a fast-paced (in your face) style, that hasn't been seen for some time, with more blood then I have witnessed on film in perhaps forever... The story is dark and suspenseful, with lots of "Meaty" death sequences that will surely have you rewinding just to see it again... And again!
An instant treasure for any fan of Barker's work, yet equally important viewing for any horror-hound who has a taste for blood.
