  1. TADFF Review: Let Us Prey (2014)



    When director Brian O’Malley introduced his new film, Let Us Prey, via a prerecording in front of the Toronto After Dark Film Festival he informed us that his intention was to make a timeless horror classic. To accomplish this, he set on out to deliver a film that could not be dated (watching Let Us Prey ten years from now and there is nothing in the fashion, look or feel of the film that would immediately reference 2014) and that had a synthesizer styled score reminiscent of the ...

  2. TADFF Review: The Town that Dreaded Sundown (2014)


    Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s The Town that Dreaded Sundown is not your average horror film. The 2014 edition is neither a remake nor a sequel to the 1976 cult classic of the same name. Instead, it cleverly uses the first film as a backdrop to tell a story that was based on actual crimes committed in the town of Texarkana in 1946.

  4. TADFF: Open Windows (2014)


    Our little Frodo is becoming quite the horror icon. Actor Elijah Wood might always be first associated with his role as the hobbit in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, but his dabbles in the horror genre should not be overlooked. After playing a serial killer in 2012’s Maniac remake, Wood has also lent his talents to the thriller Grand Piano, the indie horror Cooties and presently as lead in Nacho Vigalondo’s Open Windows.

    Spanish director Vigalondo is ...

  5. TADFF: Zombeavers (2014)



    Zombies, zombies, zombies. They’re everywhere. The Walking Dead is the highest rated television program. My Netflix queue and DVD wait list is saturated with zombie genre features. And as far as I can tell from the parents to which I converse about this year’s Halloween, zombies seem to be a costume of choice for the zealous trick-or-treaters.

    Excuse the expression, but the genre has been done to death. Walking zombies, running zombies, brain eating zombies, ...
