The Midnight Meat Train

Vinnie Jones in The Midnight Meat Train

The Midnight Meat Train (18) 97min ●●●
Brutal and kinetically visceral New York subway set horror which pits a meek professional photographer against a murderous butcher. Based on Clive Barker's short story of the same name and directed with style and economy by Japanese cult filmmaker Ryuhei Kitamura (often called 'the Sam Raimi of Japan'), the B-list cast includes Vinnie Jones (pictured). Selected release from Fri 31 Oct.

Pride and Glory (15) 130min ●●
Hackneyed police procedural about a good cop Ray Tierney (Ed Norton) torn between duty to his family (a long line of cops) and his duty to uphold the law. A top notch cast which includes Colin Farrell and Jon Voight fail to bring anything to this tedious and underdeveloped thriller from writer Joe Smokin' Aces Carnahan and director Gavin O'Connor (Tumbleweeds, Miracle). No wonder this film has been on the shelf for two years. General release from Fri 7 Nov.

Scar 3-D (18) 90min ●●
A psycho torturer starts killing again - 16 years after his last victim thought she had stopped him in his tracks. Commendably nasty addition to the torture porn canon with added incentive of three-dimensional technology. Unfortunately bad acting, poor plotting, terrible dialogue and wretched direction undo any splatter gore potential. Selected release from Fri 7 Nov.
