The Midnight Meat Train

Movie • 2008 • Mystery  

Report
The photographer Leon lives with his girlfriend and waitress Maya waiting for a chance to get in the photo business. When Maya contacts their friend Jurgis, he schedules a meeting for Leon with the successful owner of arts gallery Susan Hoff; she analyzes Leon's work and asks him to improve the quality of his photos. During the night, the upset Leon decides to wander on the streets taking pictures with his camera, and he follows three punks down to the subway station; when the gang attacks a young woman, Leon defends her and the guys move on. On the next morning, Leon discovers that the woman is missing. He goes to the police station, but Detective Lynn Hadley does not give much attention to him and discredits his statement. Leon becomes obsessed to find what happened with the stranger and he watches the subway station. When he sees the elegant butcher Mahogany in the train, Leon believes he might be a murderer and stalks him everywhere, in the beginning of his journey to the darkness.

No animals die on screen but there are numerous shots of a meat packing warehouse with pig carcasses hanging. Not grotesque.

In addition to the scene described in the other comment, there is also a scene where three guys attack a woman in the subway and insinuate that they are going to sexual assault her. It is broken up before anything too serious happens but disturbing nonetheless. About 12 minutes in

Some coughing and spitting up blood by the butcher when he is fighting Quinton Jackson’s character at around the 32 minute mark. He spits up blood after he raises his hammer while the other guy is laying on the ground. Might be triggering for some.

SPOILERS: the twist of the movie is that people are being butchered for the consumption of reptilian people who live underground and would otherwise take over the world. while this technically isn't explicit antisemitism (insofar as no one outright says 'and the lizards are jewish people') and I dont personally know what the creators intended, "lizard people who rule the world" (and "inhuman creature eats human flesh/blood", in this context) are extremely common antisemitic dogwhistles/allegories.
