Abstract:

A barrel chested man stalks the late-night passengers on a subway train. He assaults and kills several people with a meat hammer and a butcher's hook. Leon is a photographer who heads into the city's subway system at night to take photographs. One night he saves a woman from a gang that is abusing her. The next day she is missing. He begins to investigate disappearances. His investigation leads him to a butcher named Mahogany, who he suspects has been killing subway passengers. Leon's involvement quickly turns into a dark obsession. He takes matters into his own hands and enters the subway at midnight. He witnesses a shocking bloodbath, as the butcher kills several passengers, then hangs them on meat hooks. Passing out on the subway floor, he awakes the next morning in a slaughterhouse with strange markings carved into his chest. Later, Leon attacks the murderer and a climactic battle between the photographer and the superhuman butcher begins. Finally, Mahogany is thrown out of the train and Leon finishes the job by impaling the butcher's skull on a blade. The true purpose of the underground station is revealed, as horrible reptilian creatures enter the car, consuming the meat to which they have been delivered. Having killed the butcher, Leon must take his place.
