I am not really sure if Lionsgate is trying to derail one of their own films or what, but Midnight Meat Train (review) has been jerked around more times than I can count. The release date for the pic bounced around several times until it landed, for what we thought was the last time, on the same day that Hellboy 2 was set to appear in theatres.
That decision didn’t really make sense, nor did we know if the adaptation of Clive Barker’s short story would be getting a wide release, but at least it had a home … until today.
Once again Lionsgate has moved the release date for Midnight Meat Train to August 1st, 2008. In a way that’s good since it’ll have less horror competition, though we still don’t know in how many theatres it will screen. Sigh. All I want is to see Vinnie Jones rip people apart under the supervision of director Ryuhei Kitamura. Is that too much to ask?
