*** out of ****     I have a love-hate relationship with films based on the works of Clive Barker, while I also have a just plain "love" relationship with the stories that one such man tells. What can I say: I enjoy a good "scary story" from the man who has been hailed, and has proven himself to be, a landmark contributor to horror-literature. Clive Barker is a man who described himself as "a lucky guy who got to make a film". I assume he was referring to "Hellraiser"; that messy …

STYLIZED SLASHER PICK BASED ON BARKER PLUS IT HAS TED RAIMI
      THE MIDNIGHTMEAT TRAIN      There were two reasons for me to get this movie when it came out, well there were many but the two big ones were that it is a Clive Barker film and Ted Raimi is in it [not for long]. I have always been a fan of Barker's from his writing to his films I enjoy the man's work, same can be said for Mr. Raimi who I think is one of the most underused and underrated actors of all time. Any way the time came for this movie …

Based on Clive Barker's short story in the "Books of Blood" series in 1984, "MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN" is directed by Japanese director Ryuhei Kitamura in his Hollywood film debut. Those who are familiar with Kitamura's works know that the man is excellent in visuals and editing tricks--the man is renowned for the terrific Jidai Geki hit "Azumi", shot an excellent film in a measly seven days with "Aragami", gave us the genre-bending cult hit "Versus" and thrilled us with the Yakuza occult short film …

I'm writing this review with the biggest sh*t eating grin that I can possibly muster. Thank God for Clive Barker!!      For those of you who love the man & are quite familiar with his work, an introduction would be fruitless so I'll assume most of you know him from either Candyman or Hellraiser. Those of you remotely familiar will also know his work tends to be dark, gruesome, & ultra-violent. Midnight Meat Train really offers the goods here & makes …

Imagine if you will, a slasher movie co-starring Brooke Shields (!)     This movie adaptation of Clive Barker's short story is an edge of your seat, suspenseful chiller, but doesn't have many of those "Psycho" pull-back-the -curtain moments, and won't scare you enough to make you lose any sleep.     Never-the-less, this is fine entertainment for fans of the genre, with copious amounts of blood and gore, slashing steel implements and body parts galore.      …
