End of the Line Review
Written by: DrBlood
This was completely different to what I expected. I thought it might be a cross between Deathline and Midnight Meat Train but it ended up being all about a load of religious nutters believing that demons are going to take anybody who they leave alive.
There was a kind of twist where the demons could actually be real (as shown on the DVD sleeve which ruins it for everybody) but it's still one of those films where you are left to wonder a bit at the end.
Performances were very good and it had some nice gore too. I wasn't completely happy with the ending but it all entertained me. It's Canadian so it has that "feel" about it (if you know what I mean) but it could just as easily be European because it's a lot better than any of the American films that I've seen this year or last year.
The heroine of the film, Ilona Elkin, reminded me a lot of Shannen Doherty which is no bad thing. In fact it's just down to her performance alone that I liked this a lot more. Some of the other characters were a bit "two-dimensional" but that's just the way of horror films anyway.
"End of the Line" is a solid 6 out of 10. There's some good use of tension and atmosphere. I recommend it.
