2007 Fantastic Fest Alumnus End of the Line Now Available on DVD

Maurice Devereaux's apocalyptic horror film End of the Line played at Fantastic Fest in 2007, where it scored a Special Jury Prize for Innovative Vision. After a lengthy wait, the film has been released on Region 1 DVD by Anchor Bay Canada and Critical Mass Entertainment. Since this is a Canadian release, it is unlikely that U.S. fans will find it in a brick-and-mortars store. However, the 21st century makes that a weak excuse for not getting a copy because its available from Amazon Canada (http://tinyurl.com/eotl-amazon). Region 1 coding applies to both the U.S. and Canada so there is no need to fret about compatibility.

Those who need to refresh their memory about the nature of End of the Line can read a review of the DVD at Twitch (http://tinyurl.com/eotl-review). Also, be sure to check out the TV spot on YouTube (http://tinyurl.com/eotl-tv). It may make you think twice before opening the door to your home this Halloween (or any other time).

    I remember this one. Let's see--my three-star review noted: "It has not just one antagonist, but rather dozens of them, a whole slew of apocalyptic end-time Christian nutjobs, and they are so creepy and insufferably self-righteous that you long to personally beat them down with a large stick. A couple of parts are a bit overcooked, and one or two performances are not quite good (particularly the dude playing Frankie), but it holds together fairly well. Pay attention to detail if you want to figure out the ending."
