TIFF 2017: Ingrid Veninger talks ‘Porcupine Lake’

For her sixth feature film, director, writer, producer, actor and all around DIY Jill-of-all-trades Ingrid Veninger takes filmgoers to Porcupine Lake (set to make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this week). A unique coming-of-age story from one of Canada’s most resolutely independent filmmakers, the latest from Veninger (MODRA, The Animal Project) represents both a departure for her cinematically and a telling of one of her most personal stories to date.

Jeff Gum on supernatural mayhem in ‘The Vault’

Bank heists rarely go off without a hitch. Robbers often double-cross each other. Cops get trigger happy. Hostages wind up in the crossfire. Double-crosses occur. Those ordinary curveballs would be welcomed in The Vault. Opening on September 1, the movie finds two estranged sisters--Vee (Taryn Manning) and Leah Dillon (Francesca Eastwood)--forced to rob a bank in order to save their brother.

Hail to the Chin! Bruce Campbell talks Ash, new book, and Fan Expo

Bruce Campbell is one of my favorite horror icons. He's fun, acerbic, and honest in the most down-to-earth way possible. This week he arrives in Toronto for Fan Expo, and I had the chance to speak with him about his new book, Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor, the Starz series Ash vs. Evil Dead, and what it's like meeting with fans. Campbell even had some advice for fans coming out to meet him this weekend.
