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 the film and was very patient with me, so after lengthy negotiations, he finally won me over.”
This is lucky, at least for Canadian fans (or those of us in the U.S. that don’t mind importing) because End of the Line is a truly badass horror movie that’s been unseen for too long.
The disc, which doesn’t have a solid release date yet, will come with commentary, a making-of documentary, the Q&A from last year’s Fantasia, deleted scenes and more! Hopefully we’ll have some good news on a U.S. deal very soon, but if not stay tuned for a solid Canadian release date when one is finalized!
