  1. 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, ...
  2. TADFF Review: Hellmouth (2014)

    A throwback to cheesy and great horror movies of yesteryear, Hellmouth comes to audiences courtesy of John Geddes and Tony Burgess. Director Geddes is coming off his well-received Exit Humanity (which appeared at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival circa 2011) while writer Burgess is responsible for bringing genre fans films such as Pontypool and Septic Man (also a TADFF alum).

    Together they have teamed for Hellmouth which stars Stephen McHattie (Pontypool, Watchmen) ...
  3. TADFF Review: Suburban Gothic (2014)

    In 2012, I came across the hidden gem Excision.

    Excision didn’t have us pacing the halls awaiting the next Richard Bates Jr. effort, but it did have us stand notice when his new project, Suburban Gothic was ...
  4. TADFF Review: Housebound

    The 9th Annual Toronto After Dark Film Festival opened last evening with a sell-out crowd on hand for the screening of Housebound, a New Zealand horror film that takes on the tried-and-tested genre device of the haunted house.

    Morgana O’Reilly plays Kylie Bucknell, a troubled young woman who is sentenced by the local courts to home detention after a failed ATM robbery and is ordered to house arrest under the care of her mother Miriam (Rima Te Wiata). Miriam is a ...
  5. "Saw" Regular Kevin Greutert Unveils a New Horror: "Jessabelle" (2014)

    Returning to her childhood home in Louisiana to recuperate from a horrific car accident, Jessabelle (Sarah Snook) comes face to face with a long-tormented spirit that has been seeking her return -- and has no intention of letting her escape.

    "Jessabelle" is directed and edited by Kevin Greutert, who made his name as part of the "Saw" franchise crew (he was involved in all of them, and directed parts six and seven). Keep in mind, though, these may be targeting ...
