boos at the Bloor

Don't often do plugs for stuff going on in good old Toronto, but if you are in town, be sure to head over to the Bloor Cinema and check out one of the screenings in this years line-up of the TORONTO AFTER DARK FILM FESTIVAL which runs from October 19-25.They have a decent selection of international fantastic films including WOLFHOUND full of CONAN-style sword and sorcery kicks, but with a Russian twist, THE REBEL for kung fu kicks to the head from Vietnam, and from the demented mind of Shinya Tsukamoto, director of TETSUO and TOKYO FIST comes NIGHTMARE DETECTIVE. If you dig Lloyd Kaufman and his Troma-tastic style of lo-brow shlock, take a bite out of his much anticipated new zombie comedy musical POULTRYGEIST: NIGHT OF THE CHICKEN DEAD. And to close off the Fest on the 25th is MURDER PARTY a good excuse for bloody chainsaw humour. For a complete festival schedule, feature film reviews, trailer links, and the festival box office are now live at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival website here:
