New Midnight Meat Train Poster

The new upcoming horror flick “Midnight Meat Train” has a new poster. Check it out:

The poster is fine I guess. Personally, I much prefer the old one:

Either way, I’m looking forward to this Clive Barker based horror flick very much. For those of you who may not know much about Midnight Meat Train, here’s a quick synopsis:

“When Leon Kaufman’s (Bradley Cooper) latest body of work – 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 he’s finally on track for success, Leon’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, Leon’s relentless fascination with Mahogany lures him further and further into the bowels of the subways and ultimately into an abyss of pure evil – inadvertently pulling Maya right along with him. ”

I actually had a chance to visit the Midnight Meat Train set last year and was blessed to wield the mighty hammer of Mahogany! That’s me with director Ryuhei Kitamura (Versus). Good times.

  1. Hey Flyer28

    Yeah, this film has zero similarity to Terror Train at all. Unless you think “The Love Boat” is the same thing as “The Poseidon Adventure”, since they both have boats in them.

    :)

  2. No way. The 1st (newer) poster is awesome. Mysterious sort of and scarey. The other one is just basic…bleh. Train with blood on walls. The hooks are kewl and the way it kinda resembles the place where they store big meat slabs but the first one is still better. My only complaint is I have no idea what he is holding in his hand.

  3. Too much cynisism. Looks like it might be good. I don’t normally go in for these kind of movies, but I might check this one out.

  4. Hey Mark,

    I’m ALWAYS sceptical of any general positive thing an actor or director says about a film they’re currently involved with… because to sy good things about it is their job… however…

    I generally give them the benefit of the doubt when it comes to specifics. So is Barker says “This film is great”, I’m sceptical until I can hear his opinion about it later after the film is out of theaters… but if he specifically says “This is the best film based on my work ever done, including anything I’ve directed myself”, then I believe that’s his opinion. I might end up disagreeing with his opinion after I see the movie… but I trust that’s his opinion.

  5. And of course Clyde wouldn’t say that if it wasn’t true! He CERTAINLY isn’t paid for any sort of publicity and he CERTAINLY has no vested interested in the financial outcome of the flick.

  6. Hey Dingo,

    It’s based on Barker’s short story by the same name, he was also on set for production, and at the press conference at Comic-Con he personally called the very best movie adapted from his material, including the ones he’s directed himself.

  7. This sounds horrible – what capacity was Clive Barker involved? Is this based on a short story or did he come up with the original screenplay?

  8. I like Kitamura. This could be really good. Hopefully Barker keeps him reined in a little bit though. Some of his stuff is way overlong (Alive, Versus).

  9. The old poster is superior in just about every possible way. It’s a stunner. It’s actually quite beautiful in spite of how disturbing it is. The new poster is very blah.
