TIFF 2013: Cinematheque Programme Includes Two True Classics: Shivers and Gun CrazyAs if the Toronto International Film Festival isn’t jam-packed enough with horror premieres we’re dying to see, the lineup of the fest’s Cinematheque programme has been announced, and it includes two classics all genre fans should have on their résumés.

TIFF’s Cinematheque section is comprised of curated gems from the history of Canadian and international cinema, and few people represent Canadian horror more than Toronto native David Cronenberg. His 1975 film Shivers will screen at TIFF 2013; written and directed by Cronenberg, it stars Joe Silver, Ronald Mlodzik, Susan Petrie, Paul Hampton, Lynn Lowry, Alan Migicovsky, Barbara Steele, and Fred Doederlein.

Synopsis:
David Cronenberg’s third feature film announced him as the master of “body horror” and features a fast-spreading parasite that quickly overruns a Montreal apartment complex, turning residents into sex-crazed zombies. Shivers is presented in a new digital restoration created by TIFF in anticipation of the upcoming fall exhibition “David Cronenberg: Evolution.”

1950’s Gun Crazy from Joseph H. Lewis is also on the bill. It was written by MacKinlay Kantor (The Best Years of Our Lives) and former blacklisted member of the infamous Hollywood 10 Dalton Trumbo (a two-time Oscar winner for Roman Holiday and The Brave One) and stars John Dall, Peggy Cummins, Berry Kroeger, Morris Carnovsky, Anabel Shaw, Harry Lewis, Nedrick Young, and Rusty Tamblyn. The Best Years of Our Lives

Synopsis:
This stylistically audacious, seminal “rural noir” from director Joseph H. Lewis placed American reverence for firearms in its crosshairs, unloading a sociopathic-erotic crime spree — and setting the template for subsequent lovers-on-the-run thrillers like Bonnie and Clyde.

Rest in Peace: Dolores O’Riordan

Published

on

Sad and shocking news has come in from the music world as Dolores O’Riordan, lead singer of The Cranberries, has been found dead at the all too young age of just 46.

According to the Associated Press, the singer’s publicist, Lindsey Holmes, confirmed she died in London, where she was recording. “No further details are available at this time,” Holmes said, adding that the singer’s family was “devastated” by the news.

London’s Metropolitan Police were summoned to a hotel just after 9:00 AM today. As of now her death is classified as “unexplained.”

During her career, O’Riordan provided music for the short film Z, Birdemic: Shock and Terror, Evilenko, and many more films and television projects. We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to extend our sincerest of condolences to Dolores’ family members, friends, and constituents.

If you, if you could return. Don’t let it burn. Don’t let it fade.
