TIFF 11: The Incident Causes a Stir and Lands Distro Amongst the Chaos
There's nothing finer than hearing that a horror film affected folks so strongly that they fainted. It never ceases to amaze and amuse us, and that's just the case concerning the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of The Incident (review here).
According to Deadline the Alexandre Courtes-directed flick that screened this morning in the Midnight Madness category is clearly not for the squeamish. Apparently two moviegoers fainted during the flick and an ambulance was called. One person fainted when one of the characters was tied to a stove top and burned alive. No word on the other.
Later in the day IFC Midnight finalized a U.S. distribution rights deal for The Incident.
Rupert Evans, Kenny Doughty, Unax Ugalde, Dave Legeno, Anna Skellern, Richard Brake, Eric Godon, Joseph Kennedy, and Marcus Garvey star. Look for more on this one soon!
George, Max, and Ricky are in a rock band and waiting for their big breakthrough. Between small gigs and rehearsals they work in the kitchen of a high-security asylum for good pay at minimum risk — they have no physical contact with the inmates. One night just before dinnertime, a big storm shuts down the security system, the doors open, and the lunatics break loose. Help is on its way and should soon arrive ... they just have to survive until it does.
