Midnight Meat Train Trailer

I found the trailer for Midnight Meat Train, the movie adaptation of the Clive Barker novella that I talked about a while back and one of my must-see movie of 2008.

Check it out below:

Don't know about you, but my first opinion was that it looks and feels like a poor-man's Se7en.

Also brings to mind, Hitchcock's Rear Window on a subway. (Or, for our younger generation, Disturbia on a subway.)

I'm not going to give away the ending. But, if you've ever read the novella from The Books of Blood series, you find out exactly why he's committing these brutal murders.

To be honest, I'm glad the trailer didn't go too in-depth about the ending either. It's pretty shocking and disgusting to say the least.

It may not be a There Will Be Blood, Old Country for Old Men or even Se7en for that matter.

But, it does look like a new, refereshing horror film to entertain the screaming masses.

Consider me intrigued.

What do you think?

Looks interesting. Thanks for posting the trailer.

Of all Clive Barker's short stories, "The Midnight Meat Train" is the one that continues to resonate in my brain, so it'll be interesting to see it adapted as a movie.
