Most horror geeks know Brian Yuzna as a frequent Stuart Gordon collaborator who helped to bring us Re-Animator, From Beyond, and the underrated Dolls. Younger gene freaks would also know Mr. Y from his numerous Filmax productions, which include Dagon, Rottweiler, and (of course) Beyond Re-Animator. But now, according to Big V, Brian is about to deliver a trio of 3-D horror flicks. The first will be a giant monster movie called Amphibious, the second will be Brett Leonard's Necronauts, and the third will be Richard Stanley's Cold Blooded. Now, I call this news all sorts of interesting because A) Stanley doesn't direct many films, B) Leonard has never directed a good film, and C) they're all 3-D horror movies! With monsters!
Questions: Does Danny Boyle want to direct 28 Months Later? Maybe. Will next year's Friday the 13th Part 3 DVD come in 3-D? Sure looks like it. Want »

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 »

Maurice Devereaux’s 2006 apocalyptic horror film End of the Line exchanges familiar antagonists such as monsters, zombies, and serial killers with a different threat: crazed evangelical cultists. This new DVD release includes, among other extras, the question and answer session from the film’s 2006 screening at Fantasia Film Festival, an audio commentary, and a documentary about the making of the film. These extras are nice but the main attraction is Devereaux’s film, which puts a smart, topical spin on a familiar genre format.

For some reason no one out there wants to give Maurice Devereaux what he needs in order to secure a U.S. release for his urban apocalypse horror film End of the Line (review). Speaking with Fangoria recently,howver, Deveraux did have good news for his home country of Canada; Anchor Bay Canada and Critical Mass Releasing have the disc set to street later this year.
“It’s not hard to make a deal,” Devereaux told the site ”tons of people want the movie, including many big-name distributors—but it’s increasingly hard to get a good deal, where you get a good minimum-guarantee amount upfront and then actually get some back-end royalties later. I’ve seen too many indie filmmakers who’ve never gotten a dime for all the work they did, so I’ve been extremely cautious. Luckily, Rob Herholz of Anchor Bay was such a fan of »

It was been a long, long time since we heard anything about Maurice Devereaux's indie horror-thriller End of the Line, and then all of a sudden we had a screener. Today we added Ryan Daley's review of the film. "Maurice Devereaux is a talented horror auteur who always manages to squeeze some rich moments of terror out of a miniscule budget, and with the arrival of End Of The Line, theres hope that hell continue to release quality movies into an oversaturated direct-to-dvd market."
