Another year drips into its last quarter and with it comes
another round of the Toronto International Film Festival…and for us lovers of
all things grotesque, grim and gleefully uncivilized, that means another round
of TIFF’s celebrated Midnight Madness program.
Midnight Madness programmer Colin Geddes says, of this years
for this highly anticipated lineup can expect wild rides and crazy adventures
into the most chimerical and wicked worlds imaginable. Expect everything from
outrageous horror comedies to mock-doc eco-apocalypse thrillers, featuring
trans-dimensional bugs, lewd Catholic priests, meat monsters and dog-napping
psychopaths that will animate the Ryerson Theatre when the clock chimes 12.”
Here’s some of the horrific highlights, all of which are world premieres:
• THE ABC’S OF DEATH – 26 directors – including Adam Wingard,
Xavier Gens and Ben Wheatley – give their post modern gore starved audience 26
ways to bite the bloody big one.
• AFTERSHOCK – An intense earthquake thriller from Chilean
director Nicolas Lopez that is both written by and starring none other than Eli
• THE BAY – DINER director Barry Levinson goes for the throat
with this, his first horror film. Parasites in Maryland! Oh my!
• COME OUT AND PLAY – From Mexico, a brand spanking new killer
kid flick…that is a movie about homicidal children, not for them.
• DREDD – Graphically violent updating of the cult Judge Dredd
comics from writer Alex Garland (28 DAYS LATER) and director Pete Travis.
• HELLBENDERS – JT PETTY (S&MAN) returns with Clancy Brown
in tow for this raunchy 3D exorcism comedy
• JOHN DIES AT THE END – Clancy Brown again in this riotous
Don Coscarelli comedy shocker about an hallucinogenic soy sauce that makes
monsters out of its addicts.
• NO ONE LIVES – From MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN’S Ryuhei Kitamura
comes this stylish horror noir.
• SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS – Black comedy from director Martin
McDonagh starring Woody Harrelson and ….wait for it….Tom Waits!
• THE LORDS OF SALEM – Rob Zombie’s long awaited epic horror
film gets its world premiere….
Now I ask you, is that a lineup or is that a mutha fuckkin’
