LITTLE TERRORS - Short Film Event - Volume 31 - Earth & Sky

Little Terrors is now in its 4th year/season! Come check out a monthly showcase of horror short films! Originally featured at the Toronto rep-cinema 'The Projection Booth', the program's current home is MAGIC LANTERN CARLTON CINEMA. Enjoy two full hours of the craziest, goriest, most-disturbing and off-the-wall short films the genre has to offer! Plus Q&As with some of the filmmakers! $10, 18+. Fully liquor-licensed theatre!

The poster this month features hand-drawn artwork from Darryl Shaw. The theme of 'Earth & Sky' mixes half a program of real-world genre stories with half a program of sci-fi influenced genre films.
