Two female journalists and a photographer travel to Europe to investigate a series of mysterious disappearances, only to find themselves embroiled in a struggle against a kind of evil they never expected.
In this unsettling and creepy thriller, Karen (Ilona Elkin), a young nurse who works in a psychiatric ward, 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.Written by

I recently saw this at the 2007 Palm Springs International Film Festival as part of their midnight Supercharged Cinema films. This was it's USA premiere of the latest offering from Canadian horror genre director and writer Maurice Devereaux. It's your typical horror-slasher film that takes several over the top chances that many viewers may find extremely offensive. This is the story of a young woman who after a particularly rough day at work as a nurse in the mental ward of a hospital gets on her usual subway ride home at night only to be met by a chain of events that lead to a night of horror. The evangelistic leader of a popular religious congregation sees the apocalyptic end of man and Armageddon is eminent so he orders his followers to save souls in his own unique way. The whole plot is so far fetched that it detracts from it being a truly scary movie. Lots of gore and mayhem. Teens and people who can't get enough of slasher type movies will probably like it. I'll give it a generous 6.0 out of 10 but I wouldn't recommend it to a general audience and it would be a strong R rating.
