The best Clive Baker film adaptation that wasn't directed by Barker himself (he did produce this film). Director Ryűhei Kitamura bring a great deal of style to this adaptation of Barker's short story about a photographer who investigates a series of brutal killings on NYC subway trains. Vinnie Jones is very menacing as the business suited killer, but the real star of the film is director Kitamura, who's look and style he brings to the film makes this one a winner. Kitamura is not as over-the-top as he was in her breakout film "Versus" or his Godzilla film. He's more restrained here, but his elegant and also visceral style is perfectly suited to Clive Barker's sensibilities. Compared to films that Barker has directed, this film shares a beauty to it's violence, but it's not quite as painterly of a style as Barker's films. Kitamura is more of a cinema-guy, but that's not a bad thing, it's just different and I think it worked quite well.
