Toronto Madness





Though it’s been in place for a while, the Toronto International Film Festival gets rolling on September 7th, and I thought that now would be the perfect time to remind all you lucky bastards who are going, as well as those unlucky among us who are not, about their lineup for Midnight Madness.

This year the genre-centered portion of the show has got some fantastic titles showing up including:

  • Bong Joon-ho’s highly anticipated monster romp The Host (September 8th)
  • The horrific sounding (in a good way) All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (September 9th)
  • Jonathan King’s baaaaad sheep (sorry, couldn't help it) movie Black Sheep (September 10th)
  • Nacho Cerda’s feature length debut The Abandoned (September 11th)
  • The Cunningham/Dante/Gaeta/Helman/Russell anthology Trapped Ashes (September 12th)
  • J. T. Petty’s disturbing documentary on underground horror S&Man (review) (September 13th)
  • Christopher (Creep) Smith’s work retreat gone wrong film Severance (September 14th)
  • The animated revenge flick Princess (September 15th)
  • France’s bloody, darkly comedic Sheitan (September 16th)
  • Now that’s a great lineup! 10 fantastic reasons to stay up very late if you’re hitting the fest. Don’t forget that the zombie comedy Fido and the first film from Rue Morgue Cinema, The Eyes of Edward James (review coming soon), will also be premiering during the fest’s week-long run.

    If you have inquiries about times, locations, dining, or anything fest-related, hit the TIFF's official site and let your fingers do the asking!
