A young couple spies a sickly drunk in London's underground railway system. The man is discovered to be a displaced member of British upper class, and his story leads to the unearthing of a literally underground society. The British police (led by character actor Donald Pleasence) follow a trail of tube station crimes and stumble upon a group of former subway construction workers who were trapped in a tunnel collapse during the Victorian era. Those who survived resort to extreme measures, including cannibalism--and now they must be stopped. The film is notable for its use of gore and visceral detail to tell a story, and particularly for its imaginative sound design. Deeply influential on early 21st-century films like 28 DAYS LATER and Christopher Smith's CREEP, in particular, DEATHLINE is an unusual horror film that demonstrates depth and thoughtfulness.
