Canada Gets Scary (Movies)


We've just gotten word from the good folks at Anchor Bay Canada about two new horror flicks coming out up north (read: Canada) this month! So all you Canadian FEARnetters, take note! They've got two creepy features that'll be sure to send shivers up the coldest of spines!

First up is End of the Line, which “tells the unsettling and creepy story of Karen (Ilona Elkin of Confessions of a Dangerous Mind), a young nurse who works in a psychiatric ward, as she 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.” Think she can clock her cult-dodging hours as overtime? End of the Line made the festival run a short while back, so it's nice to see that it's finally being released on DVD. The movie, written and directed by Maurice Devereaux (Slashers) hits Canadian shelves on October 14th, 2008.

Second up on the Canadian plate is a gruesome little bloodbath called Scarce. Described as depicting “the gruesome fate of three lost snowboarders trapped at an isolated forest cabin owned by two menacing locals who harvest human flesh. As the day of the slaughter nears, they attempt to escape barefoot through the frozen wilderness.” Bummer for the snowboarders, right dude? The flick, directed by newcomers Jesse T. Cook and John Geddes (who also star as two of the snowboarders), hits shelves on October 21st.

No word on when any other countries will be seeing these flicks on DVD, but we'll keep you posted!
