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

Based on a recommendation from the Podcouch Film podcast (and an unhealthy obsession with Clive Barker) I drove quite a ways to see this film. Strange that they're the only ones reviewing this movie; I mean, even metacritic hasn't assigned it a rating yet,and it's been out for a week. I liked it a bit more than they did, but I acknowledge that it has its problems.
It was entertaining and extremely gory with some tight direction...can't say it was worth the drive though, I went all the way up to Rochester, and even though tickets were a dollar not a lot of people stayed through to the end. Maybe this is a film for true horror fans only?
