blood in the snow film fest toronto

Gory holiday film fest returns to Toronto for year two

The Blood in the Snow Horror Film Festival launched last year, and Toronto's scary movie fans will be glad to hear that as the frost clings to the pavement like so many scattered, mashed up pulled teeth and powdered human bones, the pre-holiday gore fest will back and better than every this weekend at Carlton Cinemas. For those whose loved ones share a passion for the darker side of life there will also be a Blood in the Snow Vendor Village in the front lobby for ticket buyers, plus parties and midnight screenings.

Partnered with TIFF and Toronto After Dark, Blood in the Snow aims to "highlight the best in contemporary horror film making in Canada." The line up for 2013 features over twenty Canadian made horror films (eight of which are part of the BITS Short Film Showcase) and the vendor list includes the likes of Gift Crypt and Maggot Films - this fest is not for the weak of stomach. Check out some trailers below to prepare for the seasonal bloodbath.
