Toronto After Dark Film Festival - Full Lineup
The full schedule of 14 feature films (and 2 themed short film screenings) to be presented at this year's Toronto After Dark Film Festival was released today.
I'm gonna try to make as many as possible, but after a quick scan the ones I'm most excited about are:
Alone - I'm a sucker for the "Asian" horror films of the last decade and good creepy atmosphere...Though the concept doesn't totally grab me - the conjoined twin who dies during surgery to separate her from her sister makes ghostly reappearances - it still looks like it may be fun with a crowd. From the directors of "Shutter".
Audience Of One - A documentary about one man's vision to make a Christian version of Star Wars. Strangely enough, everything goes wrong...
Aachi & Ssipak - Animated Korean action adventure with likely no sense of subtlety or good taste. Sounds like fun.
Nightmare Detective - The director of "Tetsuo" subverts the J-horror genre? Sign me up.
The Rebel - Vietnamese martial arts historical drama. It could be a bit cheesy and outside of the fight scenes there doesn't look to be anything not seen a hundred times before...But did I mention the fight scenes?
Other titles such as "Blood Car", "Simon Says" (with Crispin Glover) and "Murder Party" look like they will be bringing some humour to all the death and mayhem. As for "Poultrygeist - Night Of The Chicken Dead" (dancing zombie chickens!), I think it speaks for itself.
As I've said before...I can't wait.
