Next stop…death.

When Leon Kaufman’s (Bradley Cooper) latest body of work – a collection of provocative, nighttime studies of the city and its inhabitants – earns the struggling photographer interest from prominent art gallerist Susan Hoff (Brooke Shields), she propels him to get grittier and show the darker side of humanity for his upcoming debut at her downtown art space.

Believing he’s finally on track for success, Leon’s obsessive pursuit of dark subject matter leads him into the path of serial killer Mahogany (Vinnie Jones), the subway murderer who stalks late-night commuters – ultimately butchering them in the most gruesome ways imaginable.

With his concerned girlfriend Maya (Leslie Bibb) fearing for his life, Leon’s relentless fascination with Mahogany lures him further and further into the bowels of the subways and ultimately into an abyss of pure evil – inadvertently pulling Maya right along with him.

Horror thriller THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN stars Bradley Cooper (WEDDING CRASHERS, TV’s “Alias,”), Leslie Bibb (the upcoming TRICK R’ TREAT, TALLADEGA NIGHTS: THE BALLAD OF RICKY BOBBY), Tony Curran, Brooke Shields (“Nip/Tuck”), Roger Bart (HOSTEL: PART II, TV’s “Desperate Housewives”), and Vinnie Jones (X-MEN: THE LAST STAND, SNATCH). Also starring are Barbara Eve Harris (TV’s “Prison Break”), Peter Jacobson (GOODNIGHT AND GOOD LUCK) and UFC mixed martial arts fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.

THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN is directed by critically acclaimed Japanese director Ryuhei Kitamura (VERSUS, AZUMI, SKY HIGH) in his American debut, and based on legendary horror writer Clive Barker’s popular, eponymous short story from his classic Books of Blood collection. The screenplay was adapted by Jeff Buhler.
