The Midnight Meat Train(2008)

Rolls along smoothly and scary until the climax, at which point things get all twisted and crazy in a way that they didn't really need to be. Bradley Cooper does a great job as night photographer Leon and Vinne Jones is intimidating as baddie Mahogany, which is impressive considering he only has ONE LINE in the whole movie. The gore level is way higher than it needs to be, but all other horror movie aspects are appropriate for the film. By the time the twist ending comes on (and it is a pretty good one), things are almost but not quite nicely summed up and leave us going "Whoa..." at the way they end things in a way that's not exactly complimentary but not exactly disappointing either.
