31 Days of Halloween - Day 22 - Movie 2

A doomsday religious cult instructs all of its members that the apocalypse is upon them and that they must save souls by sending them to God by killing people with daggers. When the word is given, late at night, a small group of non cult members finds themselves assaulted aboard a stalled subway train. They flee from the cultists down the tunnels only to confront bigger terrors than zealots with knives.

 End of the Line (2007) is a nice streamlined horror film that might as well be an envisioned documentary about what life will be like in the U.S. if the far right takes control. The film, wisely, does not paint all of the religious nuts as mindless programmed killers without question, though it's the ones who blindly obey who are the most chilling. The film's outlook is pretty bleak, especially as we reach the final minutes which presents us with a really hopeless scenario.
