Karen is a nurse who works at a mental hospital. This particular night there's a full moon and lunar eclipse, which may be contributing to everyone's weird behavior. She leaves and takes the subway, only to be harassed by a creepy guy. Fortunately there's someone else there, who pretends to know her in order to get the creep to go away. It works, though he ends up getting on the same subway and pulls the brake so it stops in the middle of the tunnels. Around this time members of the Eternal Hope Church get simultaneous messages on their beepers. They then take out these cross/knives they're carrying and kill all the non-members, saying they are doing this for the love of God. A group of survivors, including Karen, get off the train and try making their way to some sort of safety. They get to a maintenance office, where two workers are stationed, and barricade themselves in. The television works--and it looks as if the entire world has gone insane. The Reverend of the church has hijacked the networks and is telling his followers to do God's work--which is to kill people in order to save their souls.
END OF THE LINE is a creepy movie on two levels. On one hand the beginning of the film, in which Karen haves this vivid nightmare with these demonic creatures, has one of the most effective opening scenes I've seen in years. And Evangelists, wielding knives in the name of God, are simply terrifying. Just like zombies there's no reasoning with them. This is definitely Maurice Devereaux's best movie.
