An unjustly neglected horror flop develops into an unhealthy streaming obsession

I don’t mean to offend the actor, but the presence of Vinnie Jones playing a lead role in a film is hardly a guarantee of quality. Other than that, 2008 horror The Midnight Meat Train is one of the more neglected hidden gems of the genre and is even considered the best critically acclaimed film of the former soccer player’s career not directed by Guy Ritchie.

Given that he’s now one of the biggest stars in the industry, which has racked up countless box-office behemoths and nine Oscar nominations, it’s odd to watch Bradley Cooper play the damsel in distress in a budget slasher if viewed with a 2022 mindset, but that doesn’t mean the haunting subterranean horror isn’t worth your time.

After all, a box office bomb that grossed less than $3.5 million doesn’t exactly scream “must watch,” but a 72 percent Rotten Tomatoes score indicates that die-hard fans of all things gory and brutal, miss buried treasure . According to FlixPatrol, that will be fixed as we speak, with The Midnight Meat Train currently as one of the most watched features on the ad-supported platform Freevee.

Cooper’s part-time photographer seeks his big break when he stumbles upon Jones’ serial killer Mahogany – a destructive force who has been committing atrocities on the London Underground for years. Of course, our intrepid (or foolish) hero dives deeper and deeper into the mystery, plunging his entire life into immediate turmoil and grave danger.

Pun entirely intended, though The Midnight Meat Train goes completely off the rails at the end in what turned out to be a hugely divisive twist, but everything up to this point is undeniably entertaining if you’ve got a strong stomach.
