One of the true hidden gems of Canadian horror cinema, Mario Azzopardi's DEADLINE is an unflinchingly grim, twisted, and cynically comedic study of a man's slow descent into madness, punctuated by expertly rendered and creatively staged gory deaths. Featuring elegant and colorful cinematography by Manfred Guthe (The Pit), tightly paced editing, and even a surprise musical sequence featuring acclaimed New Wave band, Rough Trade, Vinegar Syndrome proudly brings this gruesome masterpiece to Blu-ray for the first time, newly restored from 35mm vault elements.
