Friday the 13th means a lot of things to a lot of people, but if you happen to live in or around the Canadian city of Toronto, Friday, August 13th means just one thing: the kick-off of the 2010 Toronto After Dark Film Festival! And to help get fans in the mood, the powers-that-be have cut together a kick-ass one-minute preview trailer with shots from most of the films playing.
Toronto After Dark, eight nights of horror, sci-fi, action, and cult movies runs from this Friday, August 13, through to next Friday, August 20, when your home away from home will be the legendary Bloor Cinema for 16 thrilling Toronto theatrical premieres plus a collection of incredible new short films. Check out the details on this year’s lineup on the fest’s film overview page here.
Plus fans can look forward to a number of Q&As with filmmaker guests including acclaimed horror filmmaker Eli Roth.
