About the Movie

When Leon Kaufman's (Bradley Cooper) latest body of work – a collection of provocative, nighttime studies of the city and its inhabitants -- earns the struggling photographer interest from prominent art gallerist Susan Hoff (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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: We hate to side with the big bad studio, but The Midnight Meat Train -- despite a great title -- really does stink like month-old human flesh. – Chris Willman, Entertainment Weekly, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Before flying off the rails in the final curve, The Midnight Meat Train rolls quite smoothly as a mid-'80s-style psycho-killer thriller a la The Hitcher. – Rob Nelson, Variety, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: this devilishly ambiguous thriller leaves viewers to decide whether to take the conventional or the less-traveled tunnel through its narrative network - and the results are a stylishly bloody descent into madness, murder and hell itself. – Anton Bitel, Little White Lies, Dec 1, 2010

Fresh: The film hurtles towards the final 'revelation moment' like runaway train. If only it had stopped to take on board some of Barker's heavy mythical dread. – Nigel Floyd, Time Out, Jun 24, 2010

For some reason I remember the trailer for this movie months ago and I never saw a theatrical release for it. Now after forgetting about it, I wondered what happened to it? I just watched this movie and feel the need to write a review. This movie will twist you around at the last twenty minutes. I still cannot decide if it is a great movie or absolutely horrible. The genre reads horror, but I think it's has horror, torture, drama, action, thrills, suspense, and a little romantic background story. There is no way to prepare yourself for this. I personally think this was Bradley Cooper's most interesting role and The Butcher is very creepy (but perfect for the role). I don't know whether to recommend it or not, but I promise that it's unlike anything I've ever seen and I am a huge horror film fanatic. If you liked Number 23, and Mr. Brooks than this movie is for you. If you're looking for a good scare, it's not for you.

Disturbing but good

This movie is good a little disturbing, I would never have suspected the ending though I thought the ending made the movie just a little cheesy

Grown-up Horror

Good, suspenseful movie that, thankfully, did not star teenagers. I never write reviews, but felt compelled because this stands out as one of the best horror movies I've watched in some time. The fact that it wasn't released has me puzzled. As an added bonus I saw that it was filmed on location in L.A. Because most people don't even realize a subway exists in L.A., I'm glad to see such an exciting endorsement.
