DVD review: End of the Line (2007)
Karen (Ilona Elkin), a young nurse who works in a psychiatric ward, boards the last subway train of the night only to have it stop suddenly in the middle of the tunnel. As those around her are brutally murdered, Karen and a handful of survivors must face supernatural forces, homicidal religious cult members, as well as their own fears and suspicions of Armageddon, in order to survive. End of the Line is written, produced and directed by Maurice Devereaux. The acting is pretty good, with one or two exceptions. It´s nicely shot and edited, the setting of the subway is used to great effect. It has a nice and creepy atmosphere. The soundtrack is very good. It´s violent, it´s pretty gory and it´s all practical fx which for the most part looks great. The highlight is a half-decapitation. The creature fx design is also sweet-looking, it´s man in suit fx for the most part but I think there might be some computer rendered creatures in it. No T & A in this but there are a couple of sexual situations.
This review is based upon the Swedish region 2 DVD release from Noble Entertainment.
Rating: 6½ out of 7. End of the Line works, it´s entertaining from start to finish and gorehounds will not be disappointed. I guess I should mention that Christians cultists probably might wanna stay away from this flick as they probably will be offended by it. This one is definitely worth checking out!
