My favourite film
When I selected 5 under the radar films at the Toronto After Dark Festival I'm glad I had what turned out to be my favourite film, In Their Skin, on my list. This film was extremely unsettling. The classic story of a country home invasion in the middle of nowhere, heightened beautifully by the fact that the invaders don't want to simply rob the family, they see them as perfect and want to become them. Slowly it's revealed how wrong this assumption is, as we get a peak inside the dark baggage each of the damaged characters carries with them. This is a must see for me. After Dark was heavy on the comedy this year, and only two films really gave me a scare.
Don't forget, Saturday October 20th is the Toronto Zombie Walk, so after you've eaten your fill of brains head straight to [REC] 3: Genesis and stay for Cockneys vs Zombies to take advantage of the discounts for those made up as zombies.
