Critic Review - Entertainment Weekly

We hate to side with the big bad studio, but The Midnight Meat Train -- despite a great title -- really does stink like month-old human flesh.

If you must trash the movie, do so without acknowledging the ****ing studio.

Do you not understand how the studio is relevant here? Lionsgate only did a partial release of this pathetic excuse for a violent horror film (before you imply I'm soft - go watch Banned in America, the Guinea Pig movies, Cannibal Holocaust then you'll understand it has nothing to do with a weak stomach = clarified in advance). Depending on who you listen to they didn't release it due to politics (says the bitter director of this movie) or a deviation from this style of movie (read: this movie sucks and we want our name to be stamped on good stuff).

What IS VERY MUCH SO is that this movie review focuses upon this FACT, and therefore MUST acknowledge the studio.

Absolutely ridiculous you moron - trying to sound left-wing (how cliche) and movie buff and cinema-lover, but merely establishing yourself as another dweeb who reads the blurb of a review and tries to make sweeping statements that are illogical, incorrect and unqualified.


This movie was 0/10, lame, poorly executed, style over substance, inoffensive, horrid CGI blood effects that was uneven and horrifically acted.

i don't agree that this movie stinks; i found it to be a classic horror film that wasn't afraid to take chances. and most of the chances worked.
if you want to discuss something that does stink, it's your review of the film and the magazine you write for.light a match!

Such a silly review, it really should be pulled. A "reviewer" complaining that an adaptation of a Clive Barker story had fantasy-horror elements is just ridiculous.
