We kick off in style with our festival opener PREY FOR THE DEVIL, the chilling new supernatural horror film from festival alumnus Daniel Stamm (The Last Exorcism). For more scares in the dark, look no further than the terrifying new Mexican witchcraft horror EVIL EYE!
Fans of a certain evil doll will scream with delight over LIVING WITH CHUCKY (no trailer), the Popcorn Frights Audience Award-winning feature from Kyra Elise Gardner about the Child’s Play franchise. And yes, the Official Chucky Doll will be coming with her for a photo op with fans!
This year’s zombie night features a double barrelled dose of brain munching mayhem with zombie action comedy MEXZOMBIES and the intense apocalyptic zombie actioner DAY ZERO. For more hardcore action, fans should check out the thrill-packed H4Z4RD, it’s Fast and the Furious done Belgian style!
Sci-Fi and Fantasy fans will be over the moon with this fantastic trio: Sundance hit sci-fi mystery horror SOMETHING IN THE DIRT from festival favourites Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (The Endless), THE LAIR the latest new epic sci-fi horror actioner from acclaimed festival alumnus Neil Marshall (The Descent), and FREAKS OUT, a stunning epic about a group of super powered circus artists fighting Nazis during World War II!
This year’s festival closer is HERE FOR BLOOD, the World Premiere of a brand new locally made horror action comedy. Full of great gore gags and action in the vein of The Evil Dead series, it’s a Toronto After Dark crowd-pleasing finale not to be missed!
