The Midnight Meat Train
In a typical Western horror film style that we all familiar, "The Midnight Meat Train" contains brutish, unflinching and in your face brutality. But that does not meant there is not originality at all. Beside you'll see one of the best evil guy portrayed in horror films by the hulking Vinnie Jones, it also most effectively depicts the use of hammer in killing peoples. Of course, a violence movie always come with lot of blood, dead bodies, but it actually has rather prominent and detail scenes of human butchering.
As the movie was based on Clive Barker's short story by the similar title, you are expected to see the type of story-telling, violence and horror from him. In fact i did felt it had some traces of familiarity with the famous Hellraiser series.
