Deadline: Directed by Mario Azzopardi. With Stephen Young, Sharon Masters, Marvin Goldhar, Jeannie Elias. A popular horror writer whose family life is falling apart struggles to write his next horror movie.

“This gory and admirably engrossing Canadian horror is rarely seen and suitably obscure.It tells the story of an accomplished writer of horror scripts,who is plagued by ghastly visions of horror and bloody carnage.His ideas are often outrageous and transgressive.He writes about cannibalistic nuns,satanic goats and murderous children with gasoline.He is constantly fighting with his drug-addicted wife and his three children are neglected.When his small daughter is hanged his life breaks down into nightmarish pieces.u0026quot;Deadlineu0026quot; is about dysfunctional Canadian family and their tortured lives.The film is very gory,but the gore scenes are all shots from various movies Steve did.The acting is great and the atmosphere is sleazy and washed-out.u0026quot;Deadlineu0026quot; hates horror genre,but it works as a grimly effective shocker.8 out of 10 for this obscure horror classic.”
