Going through the archives uncovers interesting bits from one's past. The above is my admission ticket to a standout film from 2006's TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) event:
End of the Line
Talented Montreal-based filmmaker Maurice Devereaux had made a few feature length films, but End is his best, a summit of sorts; a horror film of some real horror.
The screening I attended at the now-gone Cumberland 3 cinema caused some serious audience jumps. I remember having a smile on my face at times. A smile brought on by a film made out-of-pocket by a dedicated Canadian filmmaker who showed his Hollywood big brothers how it's done -- big budget not needed. Without studio-mandated script notes to get in the way, End of the Line pleases through singular vision.
Two people in my immediate circle of friends have a copy of the flick on DVD. I'm guessing home video sales were good.
