Pretty much exactly what you would expect based on the title. I like Clive Barker, and his adaptations tend to be hit-or-miss - but, really, the best reason to watch is to witness a young Bradley Cooper before his acting career really took off - that, and Vinnie Jones brain people with a massive hammer.

Promising start and extremely atmospheric and well-shot. After about the first third, however, the film gets repetitive. When the "big twist" (which any one familiar with the short story will know) comes around, it seems so far out of left field that it's almost laughable and doesn't have the grave impact I'm sure the filmmakers intended.

Right mix of mystery, suspense, bizarre, and a lot of gore to top it off. Well done in all aspects. One of the best Clive Barker adaptations.

stupid.

Um. Really? The only reason I watched this (believe me, with a title that lamely gorey and campy sounding, I wasn't all that interested to begin with) the ONLY reason I watched this and gave it a chance was because people online kept saying it was good. I thought it was awful. In the beginning bits, there's really stupid looking CGI, very laughable (I couldn't tell whether they were TRYING to make me laugh or what..), it was very predictable, it went from being about a serial killer to throwing some monster things in there in the last 45 mins of the movie, the ending was cliche, sad, and gruesome. Not only all of that, but the acting from the main guy's girlfriend was so over dramatic at times that I just laughed. haha. I could've lived without seeing this one.

Great Entertainment

Of all the people not to meet on a train late at night, Vinnie Jones in a bad mood must come close to the top of the list. Hopefully, though, his mood would lighten somewhat with the knowledge that 'TMNMT' is a gem of a movie that may just have given the ex-footballer a proper vehicle for his menacing screen persona.

Based on the short story by Clive (Hellraiser) Barker, the movie centres around photographer Leon (Bradley Cooper), who is desperate to break into the big time by photographing what he calls 'the real city' - pictures of everyday people doing everyday things. Told that his photos need to have a bit more edge, Leon follows a gang of thugs into the subway station, where they start to harrass a young lady. Bradley calls for them to stop and immediately starts to snap pictu...

I recommend watching it with someone you dislike.  Act like they made you watch it and complain a lot.  You could even have a Hellraiser marathon afterwards, but that might be taking things a little too far . . .

Clive Barker is a horrible writer.  I would've thought it impossible to make Midnight Meat Train worse.  I wanted to leave the theatre but there was a fat guy in my way.
