Lionsgate wanted to unload Midnight Meat Train so bad that it is now offering it for free over at Fearnet.com, all 98 minutes and 21 seconds of it.
I have actually heard from someone that saw this movie and told me what happens in the end and let’s just say… I wasn’t impressed. However, horror fans seem to be keen on it, not sure if it is due to the controversy surrounding Lionsgate’s decision to treat it like an ugly duckling to the tune of $83,361 at the box-office thanks to a release in only 102 theaters or because they actually think it is good. Who knows? Now you can make your own decision. Here’s the synopsis followed by the movie, or click here to watch it at Fearnet, the player over there has a fullscreen option.
When Leon Kaufmanâ€™s (Bradley Cooper) latest body of work â€“ 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 heâ€™s finally on track for success, Leonâ€™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 — ultimately butchering them in the most gruesome ways imaginable.
With his concerned girlfriend Maya (Leslie Bibb) fearing for his life, Leonâ€™s relentless fascination with Mahogany lures him further and further into the bowels of the subways and ultimately into an abyss of pure evil â€“ inadvertently pulling Maya right along with him.
