A Date With the Meat Train







Now that The Mist is out and igniting fans all over the ‘Net with discussion of its ending, we get to set our sights on the next highly anticipated horror fiction come to life: Midnight Meat Train.

Lionsgate has settled on a release date for the Ryuhei Kitamura-helmed film - May 16th, 2008. For those unaware, Bradley Cooper stars as a photographer on the trail of a serial killer who is using the New York City subway as his stalking grounds. When he finally learns the truth of what is going on below ground, however, he’ll wish he had kept his focus on Central Park. Check out the Midnight Meat Train trailer below and mark your calendars now!

NEXT STORY

Movies of Stephen King stories usually don't do well because those making the movie don't understand that the strength and heart of the story are the characters, not the monsters.

Clive Barker adaptations have a different problem - Barker never lets up and doesn't just push boundaries, he breaks through them. Few people in Hollywood are willing to go where his stories go (with notable exceptions, of course).

I haven't read 'Midnight Meat Train' in a while, I'll have re-read the story now.

Hopefully the director goes all the way with the movie and remains faithful to the story.

I remember reading this in Clive Barker's Books of Blood! I can't wait to check out this flick!
