Desperate to repay his debt to his ex-wife, an ex-con plots a heist at his new employer's country home, unaware that a second criminal has also targeted the property, and rigged it with a series of deadly traps.
Best friends Marie and Alexia decide to spend a quiet weekend at Alexia's parents' secluded farmhouse. But on the night of their arrival, the girls' idyllic getaway turns into an endless night of horror.
A group of friends whose leisurely Mexican holiday takes a turn for the worse when they, along with a fellow tourist, embark on a remote archaeological dig in the jungle where something evil lives among the ruins.
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

In its official North American release, the film opened in one hundred two discount theaters, also called "dollar theaters" 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.

Near the end of the film where Maya goes to the subway, she gets through the gate by scanning her card on the wrong part of the barrier. See more »
She didn't like my work.
She gave you three minutes. People whose work she doesn't like, she usually gives one.

Clive Barker is awesome -- This ride begins with a dark eerie feel and takes you by surprise in so many different areas.
The CGI isn't as bad as most puts out -- as a matter of fact -- I think this is a very good use of the CGI...
Once you see the introduction murder -- what most refer to as the Hammer scene -- you will not want to leave your seat. You just can't wait to see whats going to happen next, then when you do --- its a ride you'll never forget -- This is one for the books.... Next Stop -- Hell --because the twilight zone has nothing on this train ride.
7 out of 10 and I'm not one to give a 7 on most movies.
See it for yourself -- If you are a fan of horror -- If not -- then steer clear -- its definitely NOT for you!!!!!!!!!!!
See you at the movies.
