This maneuver is the latest in a line of unkind gestures towards the filmmakers of MMT. It began with rumblings of Lionsgate offering a limited release to fulfill its deal with production entity Lakeshore. Genre fans responded with petitions, catching the attention of Barker who endorsed a campaign for a wider bow. In the heat of this backlash, a little bird tells us Lionsgate’s Joe Drake called for a meeting with Barker which “did not go well.” And here we are, with a flaccid debut for an adaptation that was well-received in Montreal, at the Fantasia Film Festival, and at the San Diego Comic-Con.
If you have a chance to catch Midnight Meat Train near you…awesome. Otherwise, stay tuned for DVD release news sooner than later.
