Midnight Meat Train
Well hot damn! I actually beat Butane at updating the site! Happy Independence Day, everyone! Let us celebrate meat, trains and murder!
And it’s about time! I’ve been waiting all day for Fantasia’s official site to finally get the 2008 schedule up, since we’ve been giving you stuff to look forward to on it all week, and I can happily report that it’s live!
The other day we got an e-mail from a fan by the name of “Meat Lover” (doubtful that’s his Christian name…) with a call to rally behind Midnight Meat Train
(review) in the hopes that Lionsgate will listen to the fans, for once, and give it a bigger release than its planned 100 theater dumping.
Someday, when I’m finally as rich as I deserve to be, I won’t have to make these decisions about what to focus my energy on during the month of July. This year it was a toss up between San Diego Comic Con and Fantasia and, sadly, it looks like Comic Con’s winning.
Seems that studios these days are becoming more and more wary of when and how they release their horror titles, and just how much exposure they will get when they’re out. I know our genre is supposed to scare people, but this is getting out of hand.
Lionsgate let us know today that it has once again decided to move the theatrical release date for Clive Barker's Midnight Meat Train (review)
. So, do you want the good news or the bad news?
I'm not sure why, but issues 10 & 11 of Horror Hound arrived within two days of each other ... Hence why we’re reviewing both at the same time.

Sony Home Entertainment has set a DVD date for Jeff (Midnight Meat Train) Buhler’s feature directing debut, Insanitarium: July 15th, 2008!
Phil and Sarah, the incredibly well versed and intelligent owners of the official Clive Barker site, recently sat down with the man himself for their 21st exclusive, extensive interview
. If you’ve never read through one of these, I highly recommend it; you really get a feeling for just what a diverse artist Barker really is.
Ryuhei Kitamura's adaptation of Clive Barker's story Midnight Meat Train has seen its fair share of troubles trying to pull out of the station. Near name changes, delays and rumors were bouncing all around, and then word came that the pic was missing its May 16th arrival. Times were looking bleak.
It seems like it's been a long time since there’s been a real celebration of Clive Barker as an artist. Even though everyone always talks about the author/director as an incredibly accomplished painter, mostly we have to wait for an Abarat book to see what he’s been up to.
Damn does this news piss me off. Various sources across the industry and the ‘net are reporting that Ryuhei Kitamura’s Midnight Meat Train won’t be pulling into the theatrical station on May 16th as Lionsgate originally planned.
