The film opens with a bald man with a briefcase sitting
in a moving subway car. As the lights flicker he hears a
noise, causing him to stand up. As he walks towards the source
of the sound, the next subway car, he slips and falls in a
large pool of blood. He then peers through the window to the
next car and sees a figure chopping up a bloody corpse.
Leon (Bradley Cooper) is a vegan amateur photographer who
wants to capture unique, gritty shots of the city and the people
who live in it, and at the advice of gallery owner Susan
(Brooke Shields), he heads into the city's subway system at night.
He is criticized constantly by other photographers for fleeing
danger before shooting a full roll. One night, in a decision to
break this trend, he saves a woman on the subway from two thugs
threatening her with a knife. The next day, he discovers that the
woman has gone missing. Leon is intrigued by the mystery, and begins
to investigate reports of similar disappearances. His investigation
leads him to a butcher named Mahogany (Vinnie Jones), whom he
suspects has been killing subway passengers for the past three
Leon attempts to turn some of his photos of Mahogany in to
the police, but they refuse to believe him and, instead, cast
suspicion on his own motives in photographing the victims. Leon's
involvement quickly turns into a dark obsession, upsetting his
waitress girlfriend Maya (Leslie Bibb), who is as disbelieving
of his story as the police chief. Leon takes matters into his
own hands, boarding the last subway train of the night, only
to witness a shocking bloodbath, as the butcher kills several
passengers, then hangs their bodies on meat hooks. After a brief
scuffle with Mahogany, Leon passes out on the train's floor, he
awakes the next morning in a slaughterhouse with strange
markings carved into his chest.
A concerned Maya and her friend Jurgis (Roger Bart) begin to
examine the photos Leon has been taking of Mahogany, leading them
to the killer's apartment. After breaking into the butcher's
home, Jurgis is captured and brutally killed. Maya goes to the
police, but finds that they are as skeptical of her story as they
were of Leon's. A police officer then directs Maya to take the
midnight train. Leon, unaware of Maya's involvement, finally
decides to put an end to the butcher's crimes. Leon heads to a
hidden subway entrance in the slaughterhouse, arming himself with
several slaughterhouse knives, and wearing a butcher's apron.
Leon enters the train as Mahogany has completed his nightly
massacre, and has cornered a helpless Maya. Leon attacks the
murderer with a knife, beginning a climactic battle between the
photographer and the butcher. They fight in between the swinging
human flesh—Leon's knives against Mahogany's meat hammer—and
human body parts are ripped, thrown, and used as weapons. Finally,
Mahogany is thrown out of the train by Leon, but not long before
it reaches its final stop, a cavernous abandoned station filled
with skulls and decomposing bodies. The conductor steps into the
car, advising Leon and Maya to "please step away from the meat."
With these words, the true purpose of the abandoned station is
revealed, as horrible reptilian creatures enter the car and
consume the bodies of the murdered passengers. Leon and Maya flee
the carriage and go into the cavern.
Mahogany - in a battered and bleeding state - returns, barely
alive, and engages in a death struggle with Leon, who finishes the
job at last by impaling the psychotic butcher's skull on a blade.
Mahogany grins in his dying throes, speaking the single word
The conductor appears and explains to Leon that the creatures
have lived beneath the city since long before the subway was
constructed, and that the butcher's job is to feed them each night
to keep them from attacking subway riders during the day. He picks
up Leon, and with the same supernatural strength as the deceased
butcher, rips out Leon's tongue, throwing him to the ground and
eating the tongue. The conductor brings Leon's attention to Maya,
who has been knocked unconscious and is lying on a pile of bones
(presumably this took place some time during Leon's fight with the
butcher). The conductor then forces Leon to watch as he cuts Maya's
chest open to remove her heart. When he is done, he tells Leon that,
having killed the butcher, Leon must take his place.
Finally, the police chief hands the train schedule to the new
butcher, who wears a ring with the eight pointed star on it, a
symbol for the group that feeds the creatures. The killer walks
onto the midnight train, and turns his head to reveal that the new
butcher is Leon.
