Okay, this is going to be good. The second annual Toronto After Dark Film Festival hits the city in just 24 days and tomorrow they announce the last seven feature films that will complete this years lineup. This is the second year for the horror and sci-fi event, which will also include 36 short films, and the always cool Zombie Walk.
I missed last year’s event, but I’m definitely going to be covering this year’s festival, which runs from October 19 to 25 at the Bloor Cinema here in Toronto. And just to whet your appetite, here’s the initial rundown on the films that they’ve announced:
THE TRIPPER – David Arquette’s star-studded debut horror film as writer-director
POULTRYGEIST: NIGHT OF THE CHICKEN DEAD – Lloyd Kaufman’s much anticipated new new zombie musical
THE WOLFHOUND – The most expensive Russian fantasy film ever made
AACHI & SSIPAK – A groundbreaking new sci-fi animation from Korea
MULBERRY STREET and AUTOMATON TRANSFUSION – Two critically acclaimed and gut-renching new zombie outbreak films
AUDIENCE OF ONE – A hilarious, award-winning documentary about one priest’s disastrous attempt to shoot a Christian version of Star Wars.
