The Midnight Meat Train
Unrated Director’s Cut
Directed by Ryuhei Kitamura
Starring Bradley Cooper, Leslie Bibb, Vinnie Jones
Lionsgate Home Entertainment
Release date: February 17, 2009

Whether we like it or not, our names do define us. Some are blessed with awesome names such as Alex Starbuck, while others are forced to live with the name Richard Rider (give it a moment, you will get it). My point is, a name is very important and can make you or break you. Had someone told the producers of The Midnight Meat Train, I think the movie would have had a much deserved longer lifespan than it did in theaters.

The Midnight Meat Train tells the story of struggling photographer Leon (Bradley Cooper) in need of his big break. In search of more realistic images, he comes across the mysterious Mahogany (Vinnie Jones), a sharp dressed passenger on a train with a secret. It seems Mahogany loves his day job as a butcher so much that he is spending his nights butchering unsuspecting straphangers. When Leon suspects Mahogany’s midnight activities, he decides to gather evidence on the butcher to bring him down once and for all and in the process gets pulled deeper into Mahogany’s world.

MMTAs a huge Clive Barker fan I was really saddened and pissed-off when the movie studio decided not to open Midnight Meat Train in any theaters within a 300-mile radius of my location. I mean, it’s not like I’m in a major market area like Buffalo or Scranton… just little old NEW YORK CITY!

Anyhow, retarded studio decisions and bitterness aside, I got some really good news for y’all. The cool as fcuk dudes and dudettes over at FEARnet have secured one helluva score for those of us Barker fans who couldn’t get off work long enough to drive six hours to see MMT and have been jonesing to get a taste. They’ve gone ahead and made Midnight Meat Train available to watch, in full for free, on the internets.

If you haven’t seen it, or wanna see it again, you can watch the entire movie right here after the jump. How cool is that?

MMTFirst, Liongate delayed the May 2008 release of Midnight Meat Train, then decided to go direct to DVD. If that wasn’t bad enough, the studio then smacked it in the face with a limited release to 100 bargain theaters in August. As of October 1, the film is be available through FearNET’s Video On Demand service until December, and will make its Web debut on FearNET.com on October 30.

The few people who’ve seen the Ryuhei Kitamura-directed film, based on the short story by Clive Barker, gave it great reviews, so it’s a mystery as to why the studio has buried this release.

For those of you in the Chicago area on October 25, Clive Barker will be hosting a screening of Midnight Meat Train, which will be followed by a Q&A and signing, as part of at the Music Box Theater’s Massacre 4.
