THE FILM LINEUP ANNOUNCED!
WED, JUNE 27, 2012 at the BLOOR HOT DOCS CINEMA
7.00 PM: JUAN OF THE DEAD (Special Presentation, Cuba, Alejandro Brugués, 92 mins)
“Absolutely wonderful, from the dialogue, to the many classic scenes…zombie makeup and kills amongst the best ever seen…a Home Run!” - Ain’t It Cool News
Cuba’s first-ever zombie movie has become a festival circuit hit with its outrageous storyline, fantastic kills, and uniquely stunning island location. With sell-out screenings from TIFF to Fantastic Fest, this crowd-pleasing undead sensation from the Caribbean is not to be missed!!
9.45 PM: THE PACT (Canadian Premiere, USA, Nicholas McCarthy, 89 mins)
“Effectively delivers the creepy builds, the jolts in the night, and the “holy crap!” moments” - Film Threat
Get ready to be scared by this creepy supernatural film that was a big hit at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, about a young woman being haunted in her childhood home, following the death of her mother. Co-stars Casper Van Dien (SLEEPY HOLLOW, STARSHIP TROOPERS).
WED, JULY 11, 2012 at the BLOOR HOT DOCS CINEMA
7.00 PM: DETENTION (Special Presentation, USA, Joseph Kahn, 93 mins)
“An ultra-kinetic, fast-talking, self-referential sci-fi comedy slasher film.. DETENTION is a terribly funny movie and it’s easy to get wrapped up in its weird energy.” - Twitch Film
A one-of-kind dark sci-fi horror comedy, about a group of high-schoolers led by Josh Hutcherson (THE HUNGER GAMES), that have to stop a serial killer loose on their campus with some help from time travel. A cinematic roller-coaster ride that was a hit at the SXSW film festival, DETENTION is an unmissably fun blend of BACK TO THE FUTURE, SCOTT PILGRIM and SCREAM!
9.45 PM: V/H/S (Canadian Premiere, USA, Various, 115 mins)
“Every segment has something different to offer horror fans….slashers, aliens, ghosts and even a hybrid cat/vampire.. See this as soon as you can!” - Dread Central
In this spooktacular sensation that was a huge hit at this year’s Sundance and SXSW Film Festivals, a group of thieves break into a house and end up watching five different found VHS tapes, each one creepier than the last! The combined talent of the filmmakers who teamed up on V/H/S includes, Ti West (THE INNKEEPERS), Adam Wingard (A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE), Joe Swanberg (SILVER BULLETS), Glenn McQuaid (I SELL THE DEAD), David Bruckner (THE SIGNAL) and the directing quartet known as Radio Silence, will both terrify and delight you!
Please note: a trailer for V/H/S is COMING SOON!
